Our unique tour through the dark heart of Rome reveals the city‘s sights in a different light. Our expert guide will entrance you with tales of the female pope who haunts a bridge, a notorious mass murderer and more.

Tour Description

The Ponte Sisto is Rome’s most romantic bridge but if you visit at sunrise local legend says you’ll see a ghost carriage charging towards you – the so-called female Pope trying once again to flee the city with the church’s gold.

In a city as ancient as Rome every stone has a story to tell, every building has a history. And in a city that survived the Middle Ages and the Inquisition, those stories can be dark and sinister, a world away from the tales told by other tour guides on other tours.

When the sun sets on Rome, another side of the city comes to life, an older and more mysterious Rome where fact & legend are intertwined to stimulate the imagination as much as the eye…

Join us on our adventure through the dark heart of Rome, visiting the piazzas where heretics were slow-roasted, the home of a dedicated executioner and the building where Rome’s most notorious mass murderer worked.

Hear the legends and ghost stories that keep Roman kids up at night as your guide brings the Eternal City’s most enthralling historical and supernatural mysteries to life in a highly entertaining and informative night walking tour that is unlike any other.

FAQs

  • When can I make a amendment to a booking?

    Changes made to bookings within the 72 hour window will be subject to rebooking fees to cover the cost of tickets purchased, transport, guide rescheduling, headsets and administration.

  • Is an advanced booking necessary or can I just show up at the meeting point?

    We strongly advise against arriving at the meeting point without a booking as we cannot guarantee that there will be space left on the tour. Our guides are unable to accept payment for tours so any bookings made on the spot will still need to be processed over the phone with payment by credit card.

  • Do I need to bring my confirmation voucher with me?

    It is not necessary to bring your voucher. We do recommend bringing the voucher with you as it contains helpful maps and directions to the meeting point. You can present this to your guide on the day of your tour either on a mobile device, or print it out.
