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.

Basilica Of San Clemente Al Laterano, Rome Reviews - Write a Review
Opening times for visitors (including the excavations) are: Weekdays, 9:00 to 12:30, 15:00 to 18:00; Sundays, 12:15 to 18:00. If you see the doors open earlier or later than these times, it is because a Mass is being celebrated. You are not welcome to visit the church during Mass, unless you wish to attend it. Mass is celebrated: Weekdays at 8:00 and 18:30; Sunday at 9:00 and 11:00. The language used is Italian. On Mondays to Fridays the Rosary is recited at 18:00, before Mass. Note that the popularity of the church means that it is worked by beggars. When it is opened in the afternoon, you may have one of them pretending that there is an admission charge or donation. This is an amazing church -those with an interest in early Roman Christianity can spend hours here (I did). The excavations have an admission charge of ten euros -the church relies on this income. Tickets can be bought in the shop. Unlike in the catacombs, you can look around by yourself without a guide to supervise. On the other hand, this means that the rooms of the Mithraeum are gated and are only viewable from the doorways by ordinary visitors. The church has a policy of not allowing any photographs. Please buy the postcards etc if you want pictures. The staff can be serious about this.
Very interesting history and cool place to go. Not a super popular stop, it seems, which makes it a great alternative to beat the crowds and get underground to escape the heat. Reasonable price, can easily spend and hour or so in here looking around. Not a large place, but interesting.
The collision of different eras, cultures and een languages is surprising and very interesting. If you go there you should definitely visit the excavations.
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.
Wonderful historical monument but entrance is too expensive and visitors are not allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light. That fact will keep me away from that church till their policy will be not changed. I prefer pay and donate money to other churches and parishes where visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash.
