Completely different from the experience I had in the Bourbon Gallery, which I particularly loved, but it deserves. I particularly liked trying the very narrow passages of the pozzari. Easy route even for those who do not like closed environments, being able to avoid the passages of the wells (Judas has given this availability).

There is a similar tour across the street so make sure you get to the right location. It was very popular so at least during high season and shoulder season I would not count on being able to get in if you show up without reservation. There is some phyiscal interpretation along the route to help imagine how construction took place. The use of the underground developments during WW II and relentless and devastating attacks on Naples was fascinating and sobering. An add-on visit to a recently discovered colosseum type development that is over a thousand years old underneath existing housing development was interesting also. Bring water. Lots of stairs up and down. Fun part of tour "spelunking" through walkways to see parts of the aqueduct system. It was very dark and narrow, but a highlight of the tour. The area around the tour entrance is a fun shopping, dining district.

Meet up directions were perfect. English was very good. The tour was supposed to start at 6pm, but started at 6:15pm. Nice tour to see what others cannot from the outside of Napoli, but it was rushed so as not to enjoy it as much. Lots of walking & stairs, so wear comfortable shoes. Very tight spaces to get through, about 1 foot at times. Nice little excursion to go on.
