    Stop At: Basilica of San Clemente, Via Labicana 95, 00184 Rome Italy

    Your exclusive small group tour begins at the beautifully preserved Basilica of San Clemente where you will descend over five stories underground. Learn about Medieval popes and secret Pagan rituals admiring artistic masterpieces from the 2nd century AD until the 15th century AD. Explore mysterious religions and even discover fresh water sources that lie deep in the earth!

    A taxi will then take your small group to one of the most well-known graveyards in Italy. Descend this ancient Christian burial ground and explore the narrow tunnels filled with empty graves – an ongoing point of fascination for historians.

    At the end of the tour a taxi will bring you back to the center of Rome.
