Archaeology buffs might find the Basilica di San Clemente interesting: It's a second century pagan temple, underneath a fourth century church, which is underneath a 12th century church. Enter the 12th century church from the street level, take stairs down to the fourth century one and finally end up at a shrine for Mithras, the god whom was known to gain popularity in the second and third centuries. The oldest structure is believed to have been an ancient mint.
The three-fold Basilica di San Clemente is open daily, though it's closed for lunch. You can find it off the Colosseo metro station.
