Description

S. Clemente - The archeological complex of S. Clemente is the perfect example of how Rome was built on the archeological overlap of diverse time periods. The primitive church of S. Clemente, which today is underground, has its origins dating back to the second half of the IV century, and wasmodified from the existing context of a roman house, or domus, from the III century, which in turn sprang up slowly from an even earlier structure. This last one is separated by a narrow passageway just over 80 centimeters wide  from an Insula, or large habitable structure, in which a Mitreo, or place of worship for the occult, was established in the III century. In the diverse levels present in the subterranean ambient of S. Clemente, there is also the streambed of the ancient torrent known as Clivus Labicanus, which once flowed into the lake of Nero, which today is occupied by the Coliseum.
 
Saints John and Paul - The Roman houses in Celio represent an excellent  example of the original architectural solution of three Roman houses from the II century A.D. They were later transformed into a single shop with a street  level storefront in the first part of the III century. In the IV century A.D. the building then became the house of a nobleman, and the beautifully conserved decorations that we see today are from that period. The last transformation is datable back to the same IV century, when because of the martyrdom of Saints John and Paul (and also Crispo, Crispiano and Benedetta), a ‘confesso’, or a rectangular niche with a slightly elevated landing, decorated with thematically Christian paintings, was created. Finally, in the V century, the construction of the wonderful Church began. The Roman houses can therefore be considered a pristine and singular example of a pictorial conservation that is found nowhere else in Rome.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
