Together with your English speaking tour guide, you will start your guided tour in the unique multi-layered San Clemente Basilica: a 12th Century Church, built on top of a 4th Century Church, built on top of a 2nd Century Pagan Temple, built on top of 1st Century Roman Buildings. The tour will grant you access to all the underground levels, going 45 feet below the current street level, walking over the bricks of the ancient roman age. Afterwards you will be moving on to Santo Stefano Rotondo Church, “Saint Stephen in the Round”. This unique church dates back to the 5th Century and is the FIRST circular church in the eternal city. It is also the only place where we can admire the Martyrology, a record of martyrdoms, painted by Pomarancio in the XVI century. The third and final church included on the guided tour, is the Most Important Catholic Church in the World; Saint John in Lateran Basilica, official Seat of the Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis. Alongside the magnificence of the church itself, your tour guide will enrich the excursion with some interesting facts and details about Holy Stairs, the marble stairway allegedly walked by Christ and the most ancient Egyptian Obelisk in the World, transported to Rome by ancient roman Emperors. The tour ends nearby the “San Giovanni” Metro Stop subway line.
