Ancient Rome, St. Clemente Basilica with the Undergrounds and Vatican City

Ancient and Christian Rome: the two sides of Rome, the greatness of the Empire and the richness of the Papal Rome.

Together with the Colosseum and Palatine we will discover San Clemente’s Basilica. It was built on top of roman buildings, and preserves mosaics and Middle Age furniture. Even more amazing are his dungeon that will allow us to penetrate underground. Consequently we will have a deeper understanding of the Colosseum archeological treasures. Roman Forum beauty, with its triumphal arches, still standing buildings will lead us step by step in the Romans daily life and up to the Palatine hill, house of the Romans Emperors. Rome seen from up here will live you breathless. The Vatican Museums are one of the most important Art collection in the world! You will see Greek and Roman statues but also Baroque and Renaissance arazzi together with frescoes and paintings, bas-relief and trompe l’Oeil and the Sistine Chapel. Its beauty and its timeless charm does not show its age. From there you will access Saint Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world filled with artworks, the deserved end for such fascinating tour.

On our recent visit to Rome we rented an apartment near the Spanish Steps. The owner recommended using Romebylocals for any tours we might be interested in. We could not have been more pleased with Cristina and the professional services we received during our stay. The company was in constant contact with me prior to our arrival and during our stay. They accommodated our wishes and made adjustments to scheduling due to one person in our party departing at a different time than the rest. We never felt rushed on our tours and Cristina was very knowledgable and provided a fun and educational environment for everyone in our party. I would highly recommend using Romebylocals for any tours you may be interested in during a visit to Rome.
