Know More about this tour

When you take St. Clements Basilica And Quattro Coronati Churchs Small Group Tour, this is how your itinerary will be -

Meet your guide at Piazza San Clemente, pay your entrance fee, and make your way inside the square's centerpiece basilica. Your skip-the-line ticket allows you to whisk past any long lines allowing you to spend more time inside exploring the site.

Starting inside the 12th-century building, you will admire the rich ornamentation of the interior as your guide tells you about Cardinal Anastasius for whom the church was built. Gaze at a Byzantine mosaic with an arabesque motif, and stare in wonder at the frescoed floor of the edifice.

The 4th-century basilica lies one level beneath the ground. Head down to explore the aisles and central naves as your guide talks about St. Alexius and St. Clemente, whose lives are depicted in magnificent frescoes.

Walk down to the basilica's lowest level where the remains of the 1st-century building await. Discover once-secret rooms, such as a Mithraic school-room, and work your way around a tangle of rooms and corridors made from volcanic stone.

After this, visit the Santi Quattro Coronati Church - originally built in C. IV, the church owes its name to the tradition of the martyrdom of four Roman soldiers who refused to adore Esculapio. You will visit the Oratorio di San Silvestro with the decorations with frescoes dated C. XIII which show some episodes from the legend of Costantino.

    The tour guide never showed up. Do not book with this company!!! The church personnel told us they have nothing but problems with this tour company!!! You need to remove this tour group from your service. They don't answer phones! Do not respond on their social media sites. Horrible horrible company!!!

    Booked well in advance. Got an email the morning of tour at 1am saying it was cancelled with no further details. Tried calling to reschedule but no answer on number provided. Sent messages twice on Trip Advisor but no response.

    Guide emailed less than 24 hours before the tour claiming the tickets were unavailable. Has still not refunded money for the tour. By the way - tickets are readily available directly from the Basilica.

    Personne n’est venu au rendrez-vous. Journée gâchée. Je déconseille cette société de voyage. Une vraie arnaque!

    Very disappointing experience. Our Tour was cancelled 2 hours beforehand. I have sent numerous messages to the operator and have received no refund…

    We arrived at the meeting place at 3.20 for our tour at 3.30. Our tour guide didn’t turn up. We phoned and were told they had contacted us at 11am to inform us the tour was cancelled. I explained that we hadn’t been contacted. The person on the phone gave me his word he would phone back in 10 minutes which hasn’t happened Really disappointed as we were so looking forward to this 3 hr guided tour. We are only here for a few days so it can’t be rearranged. I think it’s very poor service and will never book with them again. Fair enough it had to be cancelled but if we had known earlier we could have made other arrangements.

    Frederico (hopefully it is spelled correctly) was our guide and he was absolutely amazing. We would recommend both the tour and the guide to anyone going to Rome.

    Our guide was the most passionate guide we have ever had. He was very knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond. His passion for Roman history was above anyone one we have met.

    We were the only ones on the tour. Our guide Maria Alicia gave us a great experience. She was knowlegable and made it a great tour. She made the tour a delight.

    We had a wonderful experience with our guide Marley(?) from South Africa, she is so knowledgeable that at times it felt over my head, we have learned a lot about Christian history in Rome, symbolism, she pays attention to details and point out things one would not have noticed just viewing the same places by ourselves. Highly recommend this trip but probably not for small children, you have to be interested in history to appreciate it.
