This tour is specially designed to make you scratch a little bit more under the surface of the Eternal City. Thirty feet underground lies a fascinating world of wonders. Your knowledgeable Dreamin’Rome Tour Guide will lead you beneath the frantic activity of the modern day Rome, into a mysterious city of necropolis, cemeteries, baths, aqueducts and villas. The first stop is at the impressive Catacombs on the Appian Way- Saint Sebastian or Saint Callisto - whose tunnels, wall decorations and burial recesses give you the opportunity to glance at the Christian faith of the first centuries. Then you will visit the remarkable 12th century Church of San Clemente, built on four layers. Starting from the top: beneath the Medieval Church, the 4th century Basilica which was built over a 3rd century pagan temple, dedicated to the god Mithras, and a 2nd century Roman domus (house), which hosts the remains of the 1st century mint of the Roman Empire and an aqueduct, with water still running through. To conclude, the impressive Church of San Nicola in Carcere, with its ruins of the three pagan temples dating back to the III and II century B.C. underneath, dedicated to Janus, Juno and Hope.
