Half-day private tour to discover the origins of Catholic Christianity


Book this "Underground tour" and join an expert archaeologist for an in-depth exploration of the exceptional remains of Early Christianity in Rome!

Beneath modern Rome is a hidden city made of temples and houses buried below the streets and the beautiful churches of the eternal city.

We will discover the three underground levels of the Basilica of St Clement:
- a 12th century church with breathtaking mosaics
- a rare Early-Christian Basilica (4th century)
- ancient Roman homes and temples.

Our tour will proceed to the Roman houses under the Basilica of St John and Paul, exploring the homes of Imperial Rome elegantly decorated with frescoes.

NOTE: the Roman houses under the Basilica of St. John and Paul can be substituted with the Christian Catacombs (approx 15 minutes drive from the city center). Please, contact me for further information about dates, times, transportation methods and costs.

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina has an excellent knowledge of her subject matter, and is truly enthusiastic about it. Our time with her felt less like a tour and more like a time-traveling journey around Rome. She was always happy to answer questions and dive super deep on any topic. A true 5 stars out of 5!
