Opening hours and information

At the entrance, the visitor will receive a brochure which will guide them through the excavations and show the location of the principal features. We do not provide guided tours 

The Basilica of San Clemente, with its wonderful blend of history, art and faith, welcomes visitors and pilgrims. We draw your attention to the fact that, in order to enter the archaeological excavations, online booking is required. For the protection of the artistic heritage and to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all visitors, there is a limit on the number of daily admissions. Online booking is the only means of securing entry, allowing one to choose the date and time slot of one’s choice.

Before booking online, we ask you to carefully read the regulations with the procedures and directions for your visit: these are necessary rules so that your visit can take place under the best and safest of conditions.
