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.

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.

Galleria Borbonica reviews
Fascinating visit to this tunnel which has seen so many uses over hundreds of years, from an escape route for bourbon kings to air raid shelter during WW2. Very moving, and beautifully explained by... more »
Amazing place to go to, thanks to Daniella who made it very interesting. We’re happy we discovered it more »
Interesting. Nice tour. However more focused on WWII than the aquaduc. For an underground experience in Naples you must do the others.Very impressive. The tour guide tells you everything about the history. They also got a shop, where they sell the items they found in the tunnels.
Fantastic value for 10 euro. Superb guide with excellent English and a very interesting history of the tunnel. I bought a souvenir with credit card with no problem
