Don't miss this one!! A 12th century church built over a 4th century church built over a 3rd century pagan temple and 1st century Roman home. Amazing. Pay the fee to go downstairs and check out the excavated christian hall-turned-church; then go down more stairs to the Mithraic temple, complete with icon and carved alterpiece of stone; then go around the corner and down a hall and enter a 1st century Roman villa, with mosaic tiled floors and walls, frescos and even running water. It is about 20 feet below current street level, which is supposed to be the result of dirt and debris in the city over the centuries causing street level to rise.
