This was such an interesting tour of the Basilica of San Clemente. This is a church, that was built on the footprint of a much older church dating back to the late Roman Empire. The excavation of the lower areas began in the 1700's. Before that, no one knew of the original church. You will visit the original church, and even walk lower to an ancient Roman house, about 2000 years old among other areas. You will be about 50 feet below the street level. It is fascinating that, as much as there is to see in Rome, there is more to the city that is buried under the streets and buildings. Angelica was our tour guide and was very informative. Highly recommended.
Awesome tour! Our guide Francesca was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot of history.
My wife and I booked the underground Rome tour for the 2nd of May and after meeting with the lovely Francesca had the most interesting tour that we experienced in our week there. It was really so interesting seeing and realising that Ancient Rome is everywhere under the city and not just what you see exposed.
Francesca was so knowledgeable entertaining funny and charming.
I really recommend this tour and Francesca is the best guide ever.
We can't wait to return... Four Euros tossed in the Trevi Fountain after dinner!!! to insure it is soon, I hope!

We did multiple tours on this trip and a prior trip to Rome. Our guide was excellent, great tour
Don't attempt these places without a guide, you will miss to much. We had a guide on a private tour. Well worth doing.
