I NOSTRI TOURANTICA ROMAI SOTTERRANEI di Roma​

Il ventre di Roma: i SOTTERRANEI

Underground Rome Tour

In sintesi

This Tour include:

  • Le case romane sotto la chiesa di Santi Giovanni e Paolo.
  • Chiesa di San Clemente e i suoi sotterranei.

Note

Numero massimo di partecipanti:  piccoli Gruppi di massimo 10 persone o tour privati.

Esplorare la Roma sotterranea può voler dire molte cose: Catacombe, Tunnel nascosti, Acquedotti e anche chiese e case sotterranee. Quest’ultima è la parte che c’interessa!
Scopri  i tesori nascosti sotto le strade della Roma moderna con una guida autorizzata e specializzata in Archeologia della città!

È proprio come in un film: nel 1887, Padre Germano, un frate passionista della Chiesa di Santi Giovanni e Paolo sul Celio, scavando, scoprì un sito composta da circa venti camere alcune delle quali riccamente decorate.

Gli affreschi vanno dal  III al XII secolo e coprono la lunga storia architettonica e cultuale di questo affascinante luogo sotterraneo.
Esploreremo la sequenza di stanze decorate e la magniloquenza delle strutture superiori attraverso le quali passano le fondamenta della Chiesa. Vi sveleremo aspetti e abitudini della vita privata romana, dandovi l’opportunità di scoprire la religiosità della società romana che passava dal paganesimo al cristianesimo. Un cambiamento non solo a livello pubblico ma anche nell’intimità di una casa.

…e che cosa c’entra la chiesa superiore? Secondo la tradizione, il luogo sarebbe stato la dimora dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo ma, dopo aver subito il martirio, anche il luogo della loro sepoltura. Questo ha dato il via a interessanti ipotesi su un possibile uso cristiano di questi luoghi. Le case romane sono state riaperte al pubblico nel Gennaio 2002.  

Dopo questa affascinante scoperta, la vostra guida locale vi accompagnerà nell’incredibile Basilica di San Clemente, dove secoli di storia si “impilano” letteralmente gli uni sugli altri.

Passeremo in rassegna i livelli ad uno partendo dalla chiesa del XII secolo, passando per quella del IX e poi del IV, e poi ancora a raggiungere i resti di un tempi Mitraico del II secolo fino ad incontrare una strada di Roma sotterranea datata al..I secolo!
Riuscirete a sentire l’acqua di un piccolo torrente che scorre sottoterra (si dice sia stato per questo rumore che i padri cominciarono a scavare..) e mentre sarete lì, siamo certi vi chiederete se non ci sia dell’altro ancora più sotto di voi…

  • Gruppi di 10 persone o meno.
