Stop At: Basilica of San Clemente, Via Labicana 95, 00184 Rome Italy
The Basilica of San Clemente is situated some three hundred yards above the Colosseum, on a road that rises gradually to St John Lateran from the valley between the Coelian Hill on the south and the Oppian Hill on the north. It is named after Pope St Clement, the third successor of St Peter in the See of Rome, who died about 100 A.D. In 1857, Fr Joseph Mullooly, the then Prior of San Clemente, began excavations under the present basilica, uncovering in the process not only the original, fourth- century basilica directly underneath, but also at a still lower level, the remains of an earlier, first-century building.
The level, therefore, of the valley in which San Clemente lies was about sixty feet lower in the first century than the present level.
After the fire of 64 the gutted buildings were filled in and used as foundations for further houses, at a level that is roughly that of the floor of the Colosseum today.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Catacombs of Saint Callixtus, Via Appia Antica 110, 00179 Rome Italy
The catacombs of St. Callixtus are among the greatest and most important of Rome. They originated about the middle of the second century and are part of a cemeterial complex which occupies an area of 90 acres, with a network of galleries about 12 miles long, in four levels, more than twenty meters deep. In it were buried tens of martyrs, 16 popes and very many Christians.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Lake Albano, 00041 Castel Gandolfo Italy
Lake Albano or Lago di Castel Gandolfo is a small volcanic crater lake in the Alban Hills of Lazio, at the foot of Monte Cavo, 20 km southeast of Rome. In Roman times it was known as Albanus Lacus and lay not far from the ancient city of Alba Longa.
Duration: 1 hour
Pass By: Piramide Cestia, Via Raffaele Persichetti, 00153 Rome Italy
The Pyramid of Cestius is an ancient pyramid in Rome, Italy, near the Porta San Paolo and the Protestant Cemetery. It was built as a tomb for Gaius Cestius, a member of the Epulones religious corporation. It stands at a fork between two ancient roads, the Via Ostiensis and another road that ran west to the Tiber along the approximate line of the modern Via Marmorata. Due to its incorporation into the city's fortifications, it is today one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in Rome.
Pass By: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy
The Colosseum, is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, just east of the Roman Forum and is the largest ancient amphitheatre ever built, and is still the largest standing amphitheater in the world today, despite its age.
Stop At: Castel Gandolfo, Castel Gandolfo, Province of Rome, Lazio
Castel Gandolfo has been a papal summer retreat since Pope Urban VIII built a beautiful residence here in the 17th century. Pope Francis has even opened up the Papal Palace and striking gardens to visitors. It is worth booking since no one really knows if the next Pope will decide he wants the palace to be his private home once more.
