Stop At: Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Piazza di Santa Cecilia 22, 00153 Rome Italy
Church of Santa Cecilia. Due to the extensive excavations made in the underground areas of the church, traditions say that the church was originally built upon Saint Cecilia's house, whereas the Baptistry was uncovered along with houses dating back to Ancient Rome times that were used a the foundations of the now existing church. While we are exploring the area within, we'll notice a very unique fresco that dates back to Medieval times and resembles the world famous "Last Judgement" that can be found within the Sistine Chapel.

Stop At: Trastevere, 00153 Rome Italy
A quant area of Rome that has seen vast changes over the centuries. This area was home to the original Jewish Synagogue of Rome and also the oldest church of the Eternal City. During 753–509 BC it was home to "Hostile Etruscans" and once overtaken, the area was largely used by local fishermen as they took advantage of the close by Tiber river. This part of Rome was even chosen by Julius Caesar as the location for his luxury Garden Villa!

Stop At: Basilica di San Crisogono, Piazza Sonnino 44, 00198 Rome Italy
It was one of the tituli, the first parish churches of Rome, and was probably built in the 4th century under Pope Silvester I (314–335). Following construction phases happened in the 12th century and again in the early 17th century, with the promotion of Cardinal Scipione Borghese. The area beneath the sacristy was investigated in 1907, when they found remains of an earlier church. Excavations have reveiled the presence of round basins, meaning there was a fullonica, a laundry and dye-house from the Imperial age.
