The Roman Houses of Celio - Rome

This large complex of rooms dating back to Ancient times was discovered at the end of the 19th century under the Basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo and it is possible to visit them in small groups. This stratification of rooms, some with frescos, dating from the 3rd century AD to the medieval period, gives us a better insight both into everyday life and the religious and cultural preoccupations of the time. An insula, or apartment block, stood at this spot in the 3rd century AD. We can see that an arcaded ground floor was occupied by shops and bars and the upper storeys provided living accommodation. Evidence has also been found here of a wealthy Domus dating from the 2nd century which had its own privates baths and rose up over two storeys. This site is not to be missed and is a reminder that Rome has constantly been inhabited since the 7th century BC.
