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
