Around the origin of our Catacombs much has been discussed, they were simpleburial and never were quarries or underground ways; the first note of the monumentis repeated since the death of St. Agrippino our bishop in the II century, when hisbody was buried there in a noble tomb. Many miracles the saint operated by thetomb, so it became a place of reverence and neapolitan wished to be buried in thatplace.

My students and I visited the catacombs on a recent trip to Napoli. The work of Enzo Porzio and his colleagues is inspiring. The catacombs are extremely impressive. But the dedication of those restoring the catacombs is also impressive.

Parking is not easy to find in this extremely busy area. You would be best advised to walk or take public transport.
How far in advance should I book a tour?

I think that a "driveway" access has been recently implemented, maybe you should book in advance if you need of this facility. On the website they talk about a street level access.
