Worth doing

Very interesting, lots to learn about Naples underground, but English spoken by guide difficult to understand.
1943 Allied Bombing Shelters in 1500s water tanks
StevenBerman, Feb 2023
The tour, starting with deep descents down a series of steps, takes you through the 1500s water tunnel system and chronicles the refuge the population found during the 1943 Allied bombing
Sobering step through time with a knowledgeable guide
Dusty_T, Jan 2023
Amazing, sobering visit to some intense history of war-ravaged Naples. Tours are a bit chaotic in registering at the beginning when arriving. Be aware the beginning has tight, steep stairs.
Fantastic!

An absolutely amazing experience! I didn’t realize there were different levels of the tour and I wish we would’ve done the more intricate tour but I would highly recommend this! Also an extra shout out for the fact that one of our other tours did not provide additional information that it started earlier when we booked and overlapped with this time booking. The team here was AMAZING and let us come in at a later time the same day!
Great underground naples tour!
Yassaira_T, Sep 2022
I found this tour through a google article & was so excited to book! It turned out to be exactly as marvelous as seen in other reviews. You get to see the underground tunnels of naples, stories behind its creation, and to see what remains. Its not a stuffy or scary place, its very high open spaced tunnels worth the tour.
Great Historical Tour
Avik_G, Sep 2022
Galleria Barbonica is a very informative tour of the underground where you can see ancient vehicles from WW2 era. While the history can be heavy, it definitely makes you think. A great tour!
cool place

great respite from the summer heat, and learnt so much about the area. however, the entrance area is quite sketchy so do be careful
Great experience and very...

Great experience and very knowledgeable guide. The only negative that this standard route doesn't include any underground "pools" or "lakes" as most photos show.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Sebestyn, Thank your for your review. We do provide different tours that’s why is not possible to see everything by attending one of them. We hope to welcoming you back very soon. Kind regards, Galleria Borbonica team
Could skip this one...
Hannah_M, Jun 2022
This was a cool experience, but not the best underground tour I've done in Europe by any means. Our tour guide was okay... he spoke quickly and with zero enthusiasm and was honestly a bit rude and no fun. We were in a very large group and there were several other groups touring the underground at the same time, so sometimes it was difficult to hear what he was saying because it was noisy with so many people around. It was cool to learn about the history of what this underground space has been used for over the years.

Dear Hannah, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you had a frustrating experience, but I really appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. Kind regards, Galleria Borbonica team

Great guide, told us very interesting things with a pinch of humour, but we forgot his name. interesting place to visit.
Perfect hot day activity
Angelo_B, Aug 2021
Did the standard visit. Nice and cool down there so it’s a great tour to do on very hot days. The guide was very knowledgeable and one hour is a good time to go through. Might try the adventure tour next time

Dear Angelo, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a great review, we really appreciate it. Kind regards Galleria Borbonica team

Give people a chance
Liane_O, Jul 2021
It is a very interesting, incredible Galleria, but offered only in english or itslian. Unfortunatelly I had no chance to understand the guide, thoug I speak both languages quite good. It was an italian group and so the guide was talking very rapidly and I had no chance to follow her explanations. What a pitty that they have no audio guide!
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Dear Liane, Thank you for your feedback! We are really sad to hear about your disappointment. Please be informed that a lot of changes have recently happened due to the pandemic, so we are developing our new services to tend to our customers demands. Please accept our sincere apologies.
Intriguing Location and Stories!
Audrey_F, May 2021
The tour was really interesting! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She really left us with an impression of what it must have been like to have to rush down the stairs to the tunnels when the air-raid siren went off. She also described the living conditions and showed us some cool memorabilia that had been left behind by the occupants. Additionally, she explained why the tunnel had been built and how the original "cistern cleaners" had to do their jobs. It was amazing! Definitely recommend, though if I had it to do again, I'd pay the extra for the "adventure tour".

Guides were wonderful. What a wonderful experience. We've been to Naples before and had no idea. Will definitely be back!
Nice

Well guided by Daniela but it is a nice site to be visited. There must be explained at the exit what roads to follow to go back to Piazza del Plebiscito
