When considering which of the many cities in Italy to stay in during a trip there, the city of Naples should be one of the first choices. Naples is huge and a city where one can find anything they desire from amusement parks to ancient castles and ruins. One of the ancient and interesting sites in Naples to visit is the Catacombs of San Gennaro. The catacombs are located underground and are a very important burial site for the city.
The Catacombs of San Gennaro stretch two levels and are large and spacious passageways, with the lower of the two levels being the older and possibly more interesting of the two. Before the multiple cemeteries were combined into one they were each dedicated to a saint including Saint Gaudiosus, Saint Severus, and Saint Januarius. The catacombs contain some superb frescoes painted on the large walls as well. Staying in any of the many cheap hotels near the Catacombs of San Gennaro in Naples is simple with the variety offered there, so be sure to look into them.
