Come discover the mysteries of Rome with an archaeologist!
During this tour, you'll be taken up to the sky, to the top of the Palatine Hill, and then down underneath the earth, all the way to the subterranean heart of the city of Rome, inside the basilica of St. Clement's.
This tour includes not only the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill, which are the most important archaeological sights in Rome, but also one more incredible underground site: St. Clement's Basilica, an off-the-beaten-path treasure.
St. Clement's is a church from the 12th century built on top of a church from the 4th century built on top of some ancient Roman buildings from the 1st century. That means that, during the tour, you'll go from the 21st century to the 1st, exploring 2000 years of history, and you'll do it with an archaeologist who will show you all the layers of this incredible city.
The whole tour will take place in the Colosseum Area, and it includes:
- Roman Forum
- Palatine Hill
- Basilica of St. Clement's (underground site)
- End of the tour in the Colosseum area.

Giovanni and his tour were outstanding. He has a great way of talking about the sites and the history that is more like story telling than reciting facts. I would recommend him highly....you will have a wonderful experience.
