Description

Underground Rome, Basilica of St. Clemente and the City of Water Tour

Under modern Rome there is another Rome… a fascinating and mysterious Rome rich in history, art and treasures. The itinerary that allows you to experience a journey through centuries of history starts at the Basilica of St. Clemente. With its two underground levels, this church gives a perfect idea of a main characteristic of Rome: the urban stratification. This early Christian church of the 4th century, with its medieval fresco paintings still in good condition, is well preserved under the Church of the 12th century. Going further down, you will reach two other ancient Roman buildings. One of them hosts a small temple dedicated to the pagan god Mithra, an eastern solar deity whose cult was imported from Asia Minor to Rome and spread above all among the military class. The other site that will be part of your exploration of underground Rome is the small, but really interesting, archaeological area of the Vicus Caprarius, just south of the Trevi fountain. During restoration works of the modern Cinema Trevi, remains of two ancient Roman buildings, were found underneath it. Archaeologists found a reservoir of an aqueduct, the Acqua Vergine, that connects to the nearby Trevi Fountain, as well as many items such as vases, statues, coins, mosaics, inscriptions.
