Tour Description

The Not So Romantic Bridge

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.

Explore Rome's Underworld

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.

Learn the Supernatural Tales

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.
