Things to see
The Basilica of San Clement is amongst the most opulently decorated churches in Rome.
The main entrance is across a beautiful atrium today used as a cloister.
The Façade designed by Fontana in 1719 is supported by antique columns. Many marble pieces of the antique basilica were used during the restoration of the church.
The richly decorated ceiling, stucco décor, Ionic capitals and frescoes that are possible to admire today were also added by Fontana. The amazing mosaics of the apse are otherwise an example of Roman 12th century mosaics.
In the lower levels some of the most impressive fragments of ancient Roman houses can be clearly seen.
