Constructed between 1110 and 1130, this church of San Clemente is not one, but three churches built one above the other, with ruins dating from the earliest Christian times.

We really enjoyed seeing the San Clemente Basilica because it was a bit off the beaten bath. Our apartment rental was only a block away making it a very easy sight to see. It was nice to finally visit a site that didn't have masses...More

I always find great passion in the architecture and detail work that was dedicated to structures back in the day, lol. There is nothing like it anymore. Cherish the passion they put into their work.

An attractive church plus we were lured by the reviews about the archaeological remains, however after we paid our 10 Euros we felt that although interesting the information provided, particularly on the notices was a bit lacking. We heard several guides explaining to groups more...More

This basilica gives an impression of many centuries. Three churches above each other, an underground part of a roman villa, mosaics in the upper church. When in Rome: dont miss this!

Such a beautiful church, and wonderful to see the excavations two levels below. Absolutely mind blowing demonstration of the passing of time. Pictures not allowed.:(

Pictures cannot do this Basilica justice. Get there early in the day to avoid the crowds. Dress appropriately.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

We did not go on a tour. We purchased our ticket at the church. There was no waiting and not a line.
