Full of bones and skulls but really BEAUTIFUL. This big cave is spacious and light and the bones are beautifully arranged. We went there by car so I don't know how easy it would be via public transport or on foot but I would still...More

Definately a special place to visit in Naples. Be sure to read a bit about the ”Cult of the dead” before visiting, to get a deeper experience.

The cemetery is partly underground and it is very interesting. The bones were brought here from the nearby catacombs. The entry is free, but you can take a guide. We went here on foot from the catacombs of St Gaudioso (15 mins). The way here...More

Saw this place on a TV show a couple of months back and so decided to check it out. Very atmospheric and dramatic setting in an old tufa mine (you can still see where they carved out ‘ladders’ on some of the walls). And then...More

We went here about 11am and can honestly say I don’t know what all the other reviews are on about it being a dangerous walk from the metro?! It’s about a 10 minute walk clearly signposted the whole way in a residential area. I felt...More

Good signposting from the metro station and well worth a visit. Very lovely history and entrance fee also gets you access to the other 2 catacombs in Naples. It is open daily however guided tours only happen one day a week which we hadn't realised....More

So this cemetery is certainly off the beaten track however it is worth making the effort to find it. It ties in with the catacombs and the church of Santa Maria delle anime del purgatorio where more lost souls were placed. There is almost a...More

You need to walk for around 20 minutes from the main road, passing all the run down neighbourhoods to reach this place. Free entry, and it is a unique experience (and a rather creepy one too!) Not for the faint hearted!

Places like this first and foremost are a great reminder that underneath, we are all human, and in death we are equal. If anything I feel the nameless 40,000 to be seen here are in better company than the rich people who were laid to...More

No, you will need to catch a bus and walk. Would suggest visiting Catacombs of Naples first, leave them by the rear entrance then 10 mins to the Catacombs of Saint Gaudiosus. from there it is about a 15-20 min walk to the... More

I assume you can google it. It is bit hard to find as the streets are more chaotic there. It took me a couple of back and forth. Well worth it, though!
