Tour Description

As the sun sets over Rome a new city comes to light – a city of legends and mystery, where thousands of years have left a story behind every stone. Having survived the Middle Ages and the Inquisition, the stories Rome has to tell are far from the average bedtime tale, fraught with murder, execution and haunting.

Join us on a nighttime adventure that leaves no stone unturned, telling you the unseen history behind the stunning buildings of central Rome. With our expert, English-speaking storytellers, you’ll traverse the Tiber and wander piazzas.

You’ll see the house of the most notorious (and empathetic) murderer ever to work in the Eternal City and visit the bridge that legend has it, is haunted by the ghost of the female Pope.

For an hour and a half your guide will take you back in time to a city that burned heretics like spit roast pigs and cured its crime problems by hanging pictures of the Virgin Mary on every corner.

Our original Rome night tours show you a side of the Eternal City far away from the grandeur of the Renaissance and the high fashion of today. Travelling in groups of only 20 people or less you’ll have the space to allow your imagination to run riot and the time to ask your expert guide all the questions you can think of.

For an experience of Rome you won’t forget, and a chance to dig a little deeper into the long and twisted history of the Eternal City, join us on our original ghosts and legends storytelling tour.
