Subterranean Naples for Claustrophobes?

Jump to last reply

Wondering if anyone has recently visited the underground sites in Naples, and whether the tours are suitable for a non-athletic person with mild claustrophobic tendencies.

I've taken the Vatican Scavi tour with no problems-- maybe because the group was small and the air spaces were so controlled. Toured Font de Gaume and other caves with only the mildest anxiety. But I had to back out of one of the pyramids at Chichen Itza (scary-narrow passages and lots of people).

If the ceiling/roof is high, it is easier. I would have a hard time staying underground for more than an hour.

Also lots of stairs are a problem, especially if I'm in the middle of a youthful crowd dashing to the top-- would not attempt the towers of Notre Dame today, for example.

There are a number of tours of Naples Underground-- can anyone report on the physical demands of any of them? I would really like to see some of it, especially the more ancient parts even if I don't make it all the way down to the very bottom (which is where the war-time shelters are, correct?).

Thanks for your help.
