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.

The thought that all this had been done a century and a half ago, leaves you amazed at the complexity of the interventions that had to be "invented" in the course of work, whenever "hitches" arose.

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
