Bourbon Tunnel

If visiting an ancient underground passage that has served as a war refuge sounds thrilling to you, then don't miss this fascinating archaeological museum in Naples. More than 500 metres long and 150 years old, the Bourbon Tunnel, Tunnel Borbonico, or Bourbon Gallery has been recently restored to the detail and offers experiences for all tastes, from historical tours to speleological excursions.

Do & See

The historic centre of Naples, with its splendid palaces and its popular and lively working-class districts, is now on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Naples also boasts an underground city, as well as its famous panoramic views. Moreover, this hospitable city is marked by contrasts and popular traditions, such as the annual miracle whereby San Gennaro's 'blood' becomes liquid in front of the eyes of his followers. Naples is famous throughout the world primarily because of pizza (which, you'll discover, only constitutes a small part of the rich local cuisine) and popular music, with famous songs such as 'O Sole Mio'.
