When the sun sets over modern Rome, the darkness exposes a different, mysterious city, one where thousands of years of history have left their mark on every stone and at every twisting turn. With a history that includes the harsh Middle Ages and the brutal Inquisition, the Eternal City has experienced dark times of plagues, murder, torture, executions, and, some say, hauntings. Unlike some of their colorful characters, these intriguing stories have survived.
This private evening tour leaves none of these stones unturned, revealing the tumultuous events behind the facades of Rome’s historic buildings. Your guide will help you imagine a Rome that burned heretics and tried to prevent crimes by hanging pictures of the Virgin Mary on every street.
As you cross the Tiber River and wander through picturesque piazzas and winding streets, your guide will point out the house of a notorious but very empathetic murderer and a bridge that, according to legend, is haunted by the ghost of a female pope. Truth or fiction, you decide!
Our unique, private nocturnal tour reveals a side of the Eternal City light years away from the illuminating Renaissance and modern Rome. Touring with your private tour, you’ll be able to ask all the questions you can think of to distinguish between fact and fiction, history and legend.
For an unforgettable, most unusual experience of The Eternal City, come along on our journey through the dark streets and even darker history of Rome.
