This tour allows you to see three of the most fascinating sites in Rome: The Colosseum, The Ancient Roman Forum, and St. Clemente. The former is one of the most iconic buildings in Rome, the latter is a fascinating Medieval Basilica with an underworld treasure hidden beneath its floor.
Delve into the glorious past of Rome. Visit the mighty Colosseum, the architectural triumph of ancient Rome, and a classic symbol of the brutality of Ancient Rome. Your expert guide will bring the Colosseum to life, telling you stories about the gladiators, Emperors and spectators who took part in what was the show to see in Rome. Relive the legends and stories of this iconic Roman building.
Then, your guide will take you to explore the Roman Forum. Your guide will tell you all there is to know about the fascinating history of the true political, religious, and economic heart of ancient Rome. A place where political alliances were formed, conspiracies hatched, religious and civic duties performed, judgements passed, and trade agreements reached.
Next move onto a different yet equally iconic building: the Basilica of San Clemente. This is an archaeologist’s Pandora ’s Box with its three-tiered complex of buildings it will allow you to descend below the depths of earth into 2000 years of history.
The church has many guises: a 2nd century Mithraeum, the house of a Roman nobleman, a pagan temple, an ancient lower basilica dating back to the 4th century and decorated with frescoes and finally an upper layer Basilica dating back to the 12th century filled with mosaics. Delving underground in the basilica, and literllay walk back in Time.
The combination of Colosseum and Basilica San Clemente is a great way to engage with different aspects of Roman history.
