You can also view the old war shelter, fragments of statues, and vintage cars and motorcycles buried under a huge pile of debris.
Discover what has been done beneath the city of Naples over the last five centuries. Marvel at the octagonal courtyard, the staircase of Palazzo Serra di Cassano, and the spaces that were once home to Palazzo’s carpentry shop.

Explore the cistern built in the 1400s consisting of amazing hydraulic work and engravings. Make your way through the Pizzofalcone tunnel before heading to the Bourbon Gallery.
