This church was built over another church and you can go down into the church underground. Many churches in Rome were built over earlier churches or pagan churches (San Clemente was built over 2 previous churches).
Another church I had gone by so many times. Went by yesterday and it was open, so I went in. I was surprised by how the interior is so much more beautiful than the exterior, with Cosmatesque marble floors and a beautiful ceiling. We also...More
This current church was founded in the 500s. It contains stonework and mosaics that merit a visit.

The interior is nice, but don’t miss the excavations. Go up the left aisle to the end and turn left into a room where an attendant collects the fee and shows you how to go downstairs. They have a small multilingual pamphlet explaining the excavations.
This church in the center of Trastevere has the remains of an 8th century church in its underground and for about 3 euros you can go down there and see it. It was under restoration when I visited so I was charged only 2 euros,...More
