Full description

Explore the complex of San Lorenzo Maggiore, at the geographic center of ancient Naples, and the subterranean treasures that lie beneath it. See colorful frescoes in the Sisto V Hall, the Gothic charm of the Chamber Hall, and excavated relics in the museum.

Marvel at the beauty of the San Lorenzo Maggiore Church and its Franciscan frescoes before gazing at the stunning ceiling frescoes in the Sisto V Hall. Pass through the Cloister and visit Chapter Hall, decorated with a Gothic portal from the late fourteenth century.

Then, descend 10 meters underground and discover the ancient ruins of the Neapolis, the old Greek-Roman city which was founded in 470 B.C. Discover the ancient commercial heart of the city, the Macellum (market).

End your visit with some time in the museum, which presents a cross-section of the history of Naples from the classical age until the nineteenth century.

Easy and friendly contact at the entrance with the handing out of a video guide to download if you go down to the underground area. Alternatively, you can book a didactically good tour (English or Italian) for a surcharge. Interesting and clear inspection of the ancient excavations without large crowds of visitors. The church is also worth seeing, as are the halls that can be reached from the (shady and quiet) cloister. All in all, a place that is absolutely worth seeing in the middle of Naples, away from the tourist attractions
