Map

Description of the Tour: St. Crisogono, situated in the square bearing its name, is one of the greatest and most ancient Roman basilicas. The original church dates directly back to 499 AD and was brought back to light by excavations that took place in 1924. The discovery of the early Christian 
church happened in 1908 during a campaign of excavations done on behalf of the Minister of Fine Arts, even though the existence of ancient remains under the modern street level had already been noted.

This early Christian church has one nave furnished with a portico that distinguishes itself from other Roman examples by the presence of sides with apses containing two spaces, which functioned as a baptistery and a sacristy. Three lateral arches formed the entrance, while the back wall was closed off from the façade by a third century Roman house.

Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.
