Dark Ages of Rome Night Walking Tour with Hidden History & Hauntings

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Summon the specters of the Dark Ages and rediscover the history Rome would rather forget. This night-time tour combines eerie sights you won’t see on other tours, dark tales spun by a master storyteller and unique views of famous monuments, including Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, Campo de’ Fiori and Castel Sant’Angelo.
  • Opt for a different kind of sightseeing trip on a ghost tour of Rome 
  • Enjoy a different view of the city's illuminated landmarks at night
  • Beat the daytime heat and explore in cooler evening temperatures 
  • Listen as Rome’s history comes to life through sinister stories
What to Expect
This ghost tour begins at Sant'Andrea della Valle church in central Rome where you’ll greet your guide. From there, embark on a journey into the ancient city’s dark heart. Stroll along Corso Vittorio to Campo de’ Fiori, a place where many say that paranormal activity occurs regularly. Cross the Tiber River on the 15th-century Ponte Sisto and stop at haunted sites such as Corte Savella prison and Church of Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte. Listen to spine-chilling tales of restless spirits and resident ghosts rooted in Rome’s history. After continuing down Via dei Banchi Vecchi and Via del Banco di Santo Spirito to Castel Sant’Angelo, commissioned by Rome’s Emperor Hadrian in 123 AD as a mausoleum, you’ll bid farewell to your guide.

Serena was our guide and despite the terrible ‘special effects’ tonight (it was raining and there was thunder and lightning), she entertained us with all these historical and haunting stories about Rome. If you are looking for a different view on Rome, this tour is absolutely a

Great time! The guide was fantastic and very enthusiastic about the stories told. Would recommend this tour for something different than the norm.

I was skeptical about this tour after reading some recent reviews, however I love haunted history tours, so I made my family come and this one did not let down. Roberto was our guide and he was AMAZING!! The short walk in between stops were filled with knowledge. At the main

I don’t often submit negative reviews (this may be my first) but I thought it may help someone avoid a waste of time and money (even though it was only 25 euros pp). We attended the tour on 28 September 2019 and wish we hadn’t. It was poorly organised and executed and we left
