Walk the underground tunnels at Galleria Borbonica, which that once connected a royal palace to army barracks and served as a bomb shelter during World War II. In the 16th century, 300 years before Bourbon king Ferdinand II decided to build a military underground passage, the tunnel housed water tanks for the city. You can still see the tanks, along with vintage cars, motorcycles, and fascist statues that were thrown away. One of the three available tours includes a raft ride in an abandoned subway tunnel filled with water. Put Galleria Borbonica into our Naples travel route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Very interesting tour with enthusiastic, well-prepared guide! Be careful: this is not the same as Napoli sotteraneo! In the latter, you go through greco-roman caves whereas this tour focuses on WWII and the Bourbon era. We took the standard tour as we were too late to book the adventurous tour (which looked and sounded very promising).
Really interesting and unique. Our guide was friendly, informative and welcomed a dialogue.
