Hidden Treasures


We’ll leave the known crowded itineraries of Rome to discover less beaten paths where rare gems of art are hidden. Enter the romanesque church of Saint Peter in Chains to admire the monumental statue of Moses, Michelangelo’s masterpice,  part of the tomb of pope Julius II completed after his death. The church also guards the chains with wich Peter was taken prisoner and same nice tombs. We will then proceed to the area of Nero’s house, the Domus Aurea, buried under Titus and Trajan’s Baths and we will pass by the Ludus Magnus,  the major gladiators school of ancient Rome to rich the church of San Clemente where we will admire the splendid schola Canthorum and beautiful mosaics before to  descend into the excavated subterranean areas to discover the previous church, an antique condominiums, an ancient street, a schools of a pagan cult, few medieval frescoes and more.
