St. Clemente Basilica is the place where you can feel, as you descend the levels, like going back in time! In the deepest level we will visit two buildings, separated by an extremely narrow street, which date back to the 1st century AD: an Insula with a Mithreum, a chapel dedicated to the Persian God of the Sun, and a massive square building identified as the “Mint” of Rome. Later the building became an early Christians’ place for their secret celebrations.
The Catacombs of Priscilla we will visit the labyrinth of underground corridors carved in the tufa where Early Christians were buried, and left witnesses of their faith through simple symbols engraved in the stones or painted on the walls throughout hundreds of years.
