Look at the map of where we went today.

San Clemente
San Clemente is named for an ancient Pope of the Catholic Church. It is very interesting because it gives us a chance to go deep below the street level of modern Rome and see two thousand years into the past.
San Clemente does not allow photos inside any of the church levels, so you will need to explore their web site tour to answer the questions!
