Programme

Day 1

We will visit Santo Stefano Rotondo Basilica, one of the oldest Christian churches in Rome, with its circular plan and its mysterious mithraeum. Centuries of art and history await us with a visit to the convent of the SS Quattro Coronati resembling a fortified fortress. We will conclude our itinerary with the visit to San Clemente Basilica: we will travel back in time among mosaics and exceptional frescoes, places of Christian worship of the fourth century and the underground pagan temples of Rome of the first century.
