Galleria Borbonica, Naples

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.

  • If you are planning a trip to Naples, you must insert your stages a Bourbon Gallery. Easily accessible to the city centre. A visit in the basement of the Bourbon Naples, with a ' navigation ' on raft, accompanied by Virgil knowledgable about the territory, its history and also very personable. Not to be missed

  • 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.
