Like all Italian Cathedrals, it is heavily gilded inside with some insane artwork, making it more of a gallery than a church to me. Alongside the Cathedral is the Baptistery which is also worth exploring, and if you time it right you could also explore the archeological zone too.
Huge and packed to the rafters with lots of things (a bit like the British Museum in London!), highly recommended getting here to see all the things they had taken from key archeological sites like Pompeii for protection.

Napoli Sotterranea is the most well known underground tour and one definitely worth taking. 40 meters below ground lies a whole city waiting to be explored – the foundation of Neopolis from 2400 years ago.
It was a truly fascinating look at Naples from an archaeological, historical, anthropological and geological point of view.
The tour starts at Piazza San Gaetano, 68 and English tours run every two hours from 10am. There is no need to book if you are less than 6 people.
