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.
Enrich Your Experience with Our Expert Guides
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.
Discover the Story of Rome's Ghoulish Past
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.

The tour really helped my son relax and look forward to our visit to Rome. The weird facts and stories were great. We noted many things throughout the rest of the week that were mentioned on the tour.
Helen was an excellent guide. She is extremely well informed about the locations and has a genuine interest in the history of the locations on the tour. She was very funny as well as quite polite and extraordinarily nice. She kept the whole tour humorous, entertaining, considerate, and above all made it a great experience to remember.
Serena was an awesome tour guide and was very knowledgeable! The three of us on this tour had a blast walking the dark streets of Rome and hearing more about its ghost themed history!
