About
A visit of the 12th century Basilica of San Clemente reveals a gleaming gold mosaic above the central apse. St. Clement's transformed over centuries from a private home that was the site of a secret Christian worship in the first century to an imposing basilica. What laid beneath the Basilica was unknown until 1860, when flooding led an Irish Dominican Roman Catholic priest and archaeologist into the levels beneath the basilica floor. Excavations are ongoing. Today, you can descend up to 100 feet underground over three levels. At the first level we will find a 4th century Basilica, long forgotten after the construction of the 12th century Basilica above. Underneath, find the remains of an ancient pagan Mitraic temple. Lower still, ruins of ancient Roman homes. A short walk away, visit the Basilica of St. Peter in Chains. The altar holds the chains that were said to bind St. Peter while he was a prisoner in Jerusalem. Here, also experience Michelangelo's famous sculpture: the Moses.

Fantastic tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
Our guide was superb. He gave us very detailed descriptions of San Clemente and Saint Peters in Chains. He gave us both the history and the structure of the building . He pointed out things we might have over looked.The Moses was the cherry on top.
