The tour begins with a visit of the magnificent Church of S. Clemens.
Descending the staircase and crossing the three level stratification beneath the Church, we will go back in time to the 4th century Basilica and to the even earlier remains of the ancient cult of Mithra, a cult of which has been remarkably well preserved. One can even hear the water flowing, as did at that time, working it’s way down to the Tiber. We will then admire the medieval basilica of the XII century A.D. housing one of the most ancient Christian mosaic of Rome.
Even if you cant get a booking with us on this tour because we are usually pretty fully booked for this one, then at least go anyhow as its really a wonderful place to visit.
The Irish priests also often do some nice tours there too for free
Finally we will walk to the close site of the Roman Domus beneath the Church of S. Giovanni and Paolo situated on the “Clivio of Scauro” on the Coelian hill. The domus contains a part of the relics of the two martyrs to which the Church is entitled, remarkable late Roman frescos and a nympheum .
