The archaeological sites of Roma Sotterranea are among the most fascinating places to visit in this wonderful city. We have selected two jewels located under two churches that have little of the ordinary. The Basilica of San Clemente hides churches, temples, streets and houses, built one on top of the other. Excluded from the classic tourist routes, a beautiful 5th century church hides the Roman Houses. They are without doubt the best preserved Domus of the Imperial Age, dated between the 2nd and 4th century. An instructive and “refreshing” tour!

Meeting with the guide at the agreed time in front of the Basilica of San Clemente.

    Basilica of San Clemente
Without one of our expert guides you’d pass this church thinking it’s like so many others. How could you think that it hosts a precious fresco by Masaccio and Masolino?
     Underground of San Clemente
Going down the Basilica you will discover another world. The first large underground level is a 4th century church with precious frescoes such as the “Miracle of San Clemente” and a curious “comic strip” of 1100. The lower levels are at the same time curious and impressive. You will explore the house of a Roman nobleman and a small Mithraeum, testimony of a mysterious religion.
     House of Romans
Your guide will take you to a small underground city. The Roman Houses date between the 2nd and 4th centuries. Recently discovered, they are extremely well preserved. You will explore the remains of an insula (an ancient condominium) and a Domus (the house of a Roman nobleman) decorated with frescoes. The complex includes a shop and part of a street.
