What you'll do
Having worked in Saint Clement's Basilica for my doctoral studies, I was able to unlock few secrets and solve few mysteries. Mysteries like the place where the female Pope was killed and buried, the room where the first Pope to change his name was elected, an ancient sarcophagus with a bone-chilling story carved on its facade, a sacrificial pit inside a pagan temple. These are just a few tidbits and highlights on this experience. Together, we will explore four levels of ancient Rome and uncover countless secrets of the Eternal City.
On this tour, I will take you to one of the most mysterious and fascinating places in Rome: Saint Clement's Basilica. Locals call this ancient church a time machine because it boasts 2000 years of history. We will explore 4 levels of Rome, from 12th century all the way to the times of Julius Caesar. This amazing church was built on top of an ancient place of worship, built on top of a pagan temple, built on top of an ancient apartment building. This is an absolute must-see place!
