About Dark Rome
OUR GOAL?that through our tours you will come to
love italy just as much as we do. It all started with an idea. One
idea for one tour, taking a small group of visitors around the historical center
of Rome and telling them the stories they would never hear otherwise – stories about
mysteries and legends that bring ancient streets to life. It was so much fun that
one tour led to another, which led to Dark Rome operating not just in Rome, but also in the
Milan and Venice. In about a decade we became one of the largest tour operators in
Italy and then we decided to take on Paris.
Our goal was to change the playing field so we looked at what was already offered
– crowded, formulaic tours led by guides with bad English and far too much time
spent waiting in line. We set limits on group size, found the best tour guides with
the best English (and now French , German and Spanish ), sought out
the most reliable headphone and bus companies and brokered agreements to skip the
lines to every major museum and monument.
Every year we have added to our list of services, inventing original tours and revising
old favorites, with the aim of offering the most rounded view possible of not just
Rome, but the rest of Italy too. Full-day tours such those from Rome to
Tuscany, Pompeii and
Tivoli (to name but a few), have allowed us to get off the beaten
track, helping you to explore a little deeper.
Because we know this isn’t enough on its own, we read every review you send us and
encourage you to do the same on our reviews page. More importantly, we make changes to our tours based on your recommendations so
we are constantly evolving. Finally, we’re proud to have a Customer Care team which is every bit as five star as our tours. They’ll
be happy to help you customize your travel plans and will do everything in their
power to ensure your visit goes as smoothly as it should.
