About Basilica Of San Clemente Al Laterano, Rome

Known as the historical triple-decker, this is undeniably one of the most impressive archaeological sites of Rome. Originally a 1st and 2nd century Roman apartment and Pagan temple, a church was built over it in the 4th century and later in 12th century, a bigger church topped this double-decker.

Up until late 19th century, only the 12th century church was visible and the hidden layers were discovered in 1857 by Friar Joseph Mulloly.

Today, you can descend all the three structures and enjoy the artistic and architectural difference of the three structures that are nestling in harmony for centuries.

  • One of the best churches to visit. Stunning interior with the Tree of Life. Archaeological levels underneath. Saints, early Italian graffiti: it's got everything.

  • Three levels of historical periods - what's not to love? The paintings on the wall are still intact. Absolutely awesome feeling imagining first Christians holding services here! A pagan temple turned Christian holy place.

  • Wonderful place to explore two millennia of Roman history. Street level structure is an 11th century basilica. Pay 10 euro and go down to the next lower level to explore the 4th century Christian /Roman church. Then, below this, explore the first century Roman dwelling / mint. A fantastic place to see the evolution of Roman - medieval architecture.

  • Amazing to see the layers of history in the building, and walk around in the lowest levels - a little spooky & you can almost hear the people from over 1000 years ago. The lower levels have the Tomb of Saint Cyril. Well worth the admission.

  • Very interesting, but also very overpriced at €10. This would be 5 stars at half that price. Essentially it's a brilliant example of how Rome has evolved, how buildings are reused and how you never know what might be beneath your feet. However they provide very little information about what you're seeing.
