Gory… or Glory?
Rome is one of the most interesting historical cities in the world. But its streets weren’t only traversed by emperors and gilded chariots, they also ran red with blood. Hear about its dark and sinister with tales about the unforgiving Inquisition, the menacing Middle Ages, a bloodthirsty serial killer, hauntings, the plague, torture, executions and so much more as your English speaking expert local guide brings the dead to life.
Fact or Fiction: Finally Revealed
Was there really a female pope? Was she murdered when her gender was exposed? Does her belabored spirit still haunt one of Rome’s historic bridges? You’ll arrive with so many questions and leave this tour filled with answers to your most interesting legends. Real or not? You be the judge (and executioner).
Dark Stories in the Dark of Night
Our master storytellers will leave no cobblestone unturned on this private evening adventure. See Rome illuminated after sunset in eerie amber radiance, revealing spine-chilling, deeply ink-colored shadows where there were none by day. Here they’ll narrate the tumultuous chronicles behind these stony ancient edifices with revelations about a city that once burned heretics at the stake, hung pictures of the Virgin Mary to prevent crimes, and executed innocents by the handfuls.
Not Your Typical Roman Renaissance
This tour explores the dark, seedy and often sinister side of the artistic city you know and love. No romanticized masterpieces, no modern fashion icons, you’ll be thrust back into the Eternal City’s eternally mesmerizing, macabre and somewhat bizarre background. And with this intimate private tour experience, ask the questions churning within you as you discover Rome’s histories, mysteries, facts, fictions and legends.
