Itinerary
Stop At:  
Basilica of San Clemente
Start your tour at St. Clemente church – one of the finest examples of how the Roman’s constructed buildings on top of buildings whether churches, temples or houses. On the inside, discover the sobering sight of the Baroque Basilica that is elegantly decorated with an array of impressive mosaics and frescoes conceived by Masaccio and Masolino. Then descend from the sunlight and arrive 3-floors beneath the streets of Ancient Rome. Relish the journey back to the 1st century AD as San Clemente itself sits atop a 4th-century Basilica which depicts the ‘San Clemente miracles’ – frescoes that seem to show a curious comic-like cartoon dating back to 1100 AD. From here, you will explore an aged Republican house that was destroyed during the great fire of AD 64. From the 3rd century, its courtyard became a temple for the cult of Mithras, with the noises of a subterranean river creating an eerie experience!

Catacombs of Saint Callixtus
Discover "The City of the Dead"! There are many Catacombs in Rome and you will visit one of the three most important early Christian ones, beneath the Appian Way. Its is an incredibly evocative ancient street, built during the Imperial Period for the Roman Army. Listening to the guides you will understand the importance of these early Christian Cemeteries. There are dozens of kilometers of tunnels with endless stacks of niches reaching all the way to very high ceilings. Family tombs with graffiti and wall paintings show us ancient symbols and greek inscriptions.
