Standard Tour - Bourbon Tunnel

The Bourbon Tunnel represents the bourbon civil engineering's pride of the underground; thanks to the “Standard” Tour you can visit and admire it. You can enter to our site from the Morelli Car Parking or from Vico del Grottone, 4, descending a staircase of the 18th century. The tour will show you the fabulous project of the architect Enrico Alvino and the technical problems he met, while he was working. You will walk through the “Bolla” Renaissance aqueduct system, admiring the bridges built by the Bourbon to bypass the cisterns. You will have the chance to visit a World War II air bomb shelter, built in these underground spaces, where a lot of authentic objects of the time have been found. During the whole guided tour you will be surrounded by statues' fragments, vintage cars and motorbikes found buried under tons of debris, illegally dumped into the underground – from the end of the World War II until the '70s-, when the Bourbon Tunnel was used as a police car pound.
