The Naples LAPIS Museum experience

Start your adventure at the Basilica of Pietrasanta, now the LAPIS Museum, an architectural gem designed by Cosimo Fanzago, the epitome of the Neapolitan Baroque. You will be given an insight into the historical significance of this location, which was once the Ancient Temple of the goddess Diana, before embarking on a tour of the Submerged Decumanus. This underground network houses the Greco-Roman cisterns, brought back to life through an impressive feat of hydraulic engineering. The surreal atmosphere is enhanced by a cutting-edge lighting system that reflects off the water and runoffs, casting breathtaking lights and colors onto the grand vaults and volumes.

Elevator ride into the past

The highlight of the tour is a 20-second elevator ride. But this is no ordinary lift – it is an archaeological marvel, the first of its kind in Naples' historic center. In mere seconds, you'll descend 35 meters and travel 2,000 years back into history. Your knowledgeable guide, well-versed in the museum's rich history, will provide intriguing tidbits of information throughout the journey. Get ready to plunge into a historical and architectural journey unlike any other!
