What to expect

Naples is one of the oldest cities in Italy and preserves the world's largest underground paths. From Greek cisterns, and Roman aqueducts, to WWII air shelters. This experience takes you through a hidden gem. Embark on a real archaeological journey in the undergrounds and follow the LAPIS Museum path.

Start from piazza San Gaetano, walk through streets, admire a gothic church, and peer through its glass floor at the remains of a previous ancient mosaic. Next, head down 40 meters through a doorbell in one of the oldest churches in the city: Santa Maria Maggiore.

The church, built on a Pagan Roman temple dedicated to Diana, still features Roman structures. Keep journeying downwards to see the Greek cisterns carved into the tough stone. Once you arrive at the lowest point of the route, walk through the tunnels to reach the tanks used for the collection of water in Roman times.

This trail was also used in medieval times as a secret passage by the Templar Knights and in 1943 as an airplane retreat. Many of the bathrooms, kitchens, and memorabilia are still preserved to this day.

Nat Geo Day Tour: A Taste of Tramonti, Pizza Making and Wine Tasting

Discover the treasures of Tramonti on this National Geographic Day Tour. The day starts with a scenic ride along the Bay of Naples, under the watchful eye of Mount Vesuvius, leading through Monte Lattari and Valle dei Chiunzi, where the small hamlets of Tramonti await. The world owes its love of pizza to the ancestors of today's residents of Tramonti — it's thanks to them that pizzerias have spread across the globe. Your National Geographic-trained guide will share tales of local culture and history as you weave along the scenic roads towards your first destination. Perched high above the Amalfi Coast, Tramonti beckons with lemon orchards, chestnut trees, and terraced vineyards. Your first stop is the garden of Acarbio, a visionary association committed to reuniting people with tradition and nature that has been promoting the Amalfi Coast's candidature to become a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Here, you'll enjoy a refreshment while discovering some of the ongoing projects, including the revival of the historical Rè Fiascone tomato, an almost-extinct key ingredient for pizza making. It's hard not to be inspired by this dynamic association, and their dedication to preserving the Amalfi Coast's rural heritage and hidden biodiversity, focusing on reviving local agriculture and endangered species. From there, you'll travel to a family-run vineyard, nestled among Tramonti's terraced slopes. Stroll amidst some of Europe's ancient vines, uncovering the secrets to their remarkable resilience. Then, treat your palate to an exquisite wine tasting, savoring the rich flavors of Amalfi Coast wines. The last stop of the tour is a local Agritourism venue, in their rural restaurant, for a hands-on pizza-making workshop led by a skilled pizza chef, who'll guide you through the art of crafting traditional pizzas. The president of the Tramonti Pizzaioli Association — an important national association of around 2000 pizza chefs — will shed light on Tramonti's pivotal role in global pizza history. Finally, relish your culinary creations during a delectable lunch.
