  • Sotterranea

    Delve into the underworld
    40 metres under the streets of Naples lies a “city under the city”. A kilometre-long labyrinth of caves, catacombs, cisterns and wells stretches out underground. Wander through this gigantic maze of tufa and sand with a slight shiver. Since the 4th century B.C., it has been used as a secret refuge, a sanctuary and a rubbish dump. In the Second World War, it provided the population with protection from attack. There are different entrances and tours around several sections.

  • Duomo San Gennaro

    Religious site
    The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, also known as the Duomo di Napoli or the Duomo di San Gennaro, is situated in the old town and is one of the largest churches in Naples. Its diversity of names stems from the fact that the 13th century building is dedicated to the Madonna dell`Assunta, but is named after the patron saint San Gennaro by the people. An ampoule of San Gennaro’s dried blood can be found in the cathedral’s chapel. In May and September believers pray for the liquefaction of the blood, which promises earthly happiness for Naples.

  • Metro dell'Arte

    The underground to art
    From boring underground stations to imaginative stops with individual character. Two dozen artists – sculptors, painters and photographers – have turned Line 1 into a metro of art and a place of interest in itself. The stations greet travellers with contemporary works of art and installations. Archaeological artefacts that came to light during tunnelling are also on display.

  • Crib Street

    From kitsch to art
    Via San Gregorio Armeno is famous as Naples’ street of nativity workshops. Crib figures and accessories of all kinds and colours can be found here. In Neapolitan nativity scenes, religious figures are not the focus, instead it is the common people: fish and fruit traders, butchers and bakers. One shop specialises in unusual crib figures, including Silvio Berlusconi and Angela Merkel.

  • Markets

    A real sense of life
    Whatever your knowledge of Italian, you must visit a market in Naples. If necessary, you can always haggle with hand gestures. The Neapolitans excel at the art of gesticulating. Surrounded by haggling housewives, market cries and bargain bins, you really feel like you are a part of the city. Almost every quarter has its own market. Some examples include Mercato alla Maddalena, Porta Nolana fish market and Mercato di Antignano.

    Ancient art

The vast number of ancient artefacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum make it the largest museum of ancient art and the most important archaeological museum in Europe.
