What to expect

Enjoy a private tour and visit two of the best examples of the stratifications of Rome and the rise in levels that characterize the Urbe. Your expert guide will provide you with a thematic exploration of the hidden, subterranean levels of Rome, including the underground of the Basilica of San Clemente and the Roman Complex Houses. You'll see some of the newest, most exciting discoveries, while also piecing together an educational narrative about urban layering, the relationship between the modern city and its history, and the cutting edge of Roman archaeology.

San Clemente is one of the most charming places in the city. It's a complex consisting of three buildings, one over the other: a medieval basilica built on a paleochristian who was in turn built on the buildings of the first century AD. In the basement, the testimonies of the Mithraic and Christian religion overlap to seal the clash between the two religions.

The Roman Complex Houses (also known as Roman houses of Celio) is one of the most important archaeological sites of Rome. There are layered the complex phases of the area: from residential use - with a rich residence and a tenement with shops - to the creation of a place of Christian pilgrimage and finally the beautiful Basilica of SS. Giovanni e Paolo. Entering by the ancient Roman road, you find yourself in a maze of frescoed rooms, whose paintings are an exceptional testimony to the beauty and historical value.

These two sites are located in the same area, at a distance of 10 minutes walk from each other.
