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. Most travelers are familiar with the glory of Ancient Rome and the beauty of the Italian Renaissance, but during the Middle Ages and the Inquisition, a far more haunting history emerged. Fraught with murder, executions, and ghosts, the stories you will hear on this tour are not your average bedtime tales.
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 while learning some of the most interesting legends of the city.
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 a young girl wronged by her family and the 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.
For an experience of Rome you won’t forget, and a chance to dig a little deeper into its long and twisted history, join us on our original ghosts and legends storytelling tour. Alternatively, view our list of Night Tours in Rome.
