The Official Angels and Demons Tour Description

Discover Rome – the Eternal City – in a whole new light on this tour organized around the sights in Dan Brown’s sensational, international bestseller. Explore Rome’s most picturesque churches, charming piazzas, and timeless cobblestone alleyways while getting a feel for their underlying air of mystery that so inspired the author.

Rome in the 1600’s - with its Inquisition trials and political machinations, was the birthplace of The Illuminati, one of the most influential secret societies of all times. The leaders of this society - Galileo Galilei and Gian Lorenzo Bernini - deposited clues around the city to create a Path of Illumination. The most important clues were a mysterious text from the poet John Milton and the Four Altars of Science, which represents the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water. These clues, when solved, would reveal the way to enter a secret place.

Among the sites we’ll visit are the St. Maria del Popolo Church, St. Peter's Square, St. Maria della Vittoria Church, Piazza Navona, and the towering, cylindrical Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel). We’ll also view Il Passetto – the secret elevated passageway of the popes - from the outside. If this sounds like a lot of walking, not to worry, we’ll provide air-conditioned buses for your transfers!

So, take a walk on the mysterious side and enjoy our illuminating Angels and Demons tour of The Eternal City!

An amazing storyteller!!!...


An amazing storyteller!!! He captivated us right from the start. He's funny, knows a a lot about art history and all the places/sculptures you visit during the tour. You definitely get more then you pay for, time is not of the essence for Robert. He take the time to tell all there is to see and to know. And my oh my, the guy is so funny! The story and history truly came alive. Couldn't have wished for a better guide. This tour was the reason for coming to Rome a second time and he realy made it a special memory for me and my mother. Thanks again Robert!

It was my best luck in...


It was my best luck in Rome to have Mike as my tour guide: he was informative, humorous, and friendly. I was looking forward to it so badly for so long a time, and he made it to come as real to be far beyond my expectations. He also kindly recommended many other tours of City Wonders which I would have definitely taken if I had had more days in Rome. I want to say "thank you". Wish I see you again soon. :-)

He did a great recap of...


He did a great recap of the book prior to the start of the tour. He differentiated between the book version & movie version. His passion was evident. I liked how he built up the suspense at santa Maria Vittoria by telling us not to look at the ceiling until he told us to.
