Only guided tours, every whole hour. two languages: english or italian. Guide is very good, even if you are not very fluen in english. Catacombe are wonderful, mystic and definitely worth of 9 euro. the same ticket is to Catacombe of San Gaudioso.

A great social initiative within Naples, it’s a non profit organization that runs it, so your guides are working on enthusiasm and passion, which makes a difference. Very interesting to learn the history of Naples from a different perspective. Well worth it! Highly recommend it!
