star-4.5
3 Reviews

The Basilica di San Nicola in Carcere is a church in Rome with an interesting history. It was built on top of three ancient temples, and pieces of these temples were incorporated into the facade of the current church. There are columns and other sections from the Temple of Spes dating back to 250 B.C., a temple that honored Juno from the 2nd century B.C. and rebuilt in 90 B.C., and the Temple of Janus, the god of gates and beginnings, dating to 17 A.D. Unlike most churches in Rome that took columns from other ruins around the city and moved them, the columns in this church still stand in their original location.

Since the ground level was much lower 2,000 years ago, some of the ruins of these temples are now underground. Visitors can take a tour beneath the church to see these ruins, which are older than many other ruins in the city. These ruins are Republican era, making them roughly 500 years older than the imperial era ruins in other parts of Rome.

The undergrounds of Trastevere

The undergrounds of Trastevere

The name of the neighborhood "Trastevere" literally means "Beyond the Tiber". In ancient times Jews and Liberti lived here (the slaves who had bought their freedom). Trastevere is one of the most beautiful and ancient quarters of the city, rich in history, legends and underground sites. We will begin our journey to discover the curiosities of Trastevere, such as the oldest synagogue in Rome. We will visit undergrounds of extraordinary and unusual churches and walk in the small ancient alleys. We will then cross the Tiber River to the Tiber Island where, believe it or not, an order of monks still maintains, under their monastery, an ancient underground cemetery, where we will see the preserved remains of many tens of skeletons (If this site is unavailable , we will visit the underground of San Nicola). During the experience we will have the pleasure of tasting some peculiarities of Roman food.
