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.
