Not just for fans of Dan Brown, this unique tour takes you to some of the most beautiful piazzas in Rome, as well as lesser known sites away from the tourist trail where pagan symbolism and Christianity intermingle.

You'll discover a hidden passage unused for centuries, and learn the secrets of the Illuminati and the Four Altars of Science, representing the four elements of earth, air, fire and water.

As you search for the secrets scattered throughout Rome by the twin heads of the Illuminati, Bernini and Galileo, you'll visit some of Rome's most beautiful sites to breathe the air of intrigue, mystery and revelation.

Our guide was amazing. He was perfectly fluent in both English and Italian and sorry but that was a MASSIVE help. Most locals in Rome can't speak English this clearly so it was so nice to have someone actually fluent in both. He knew the book like the back of his hand and all of the history of Rome to go with it. Very highly recommended.

Brilliant. Great Guide - Roberto - learnt so much, not just about the book, but the locations. highly recommended.

A very interesting tour that allowed us to visit some Rome churches that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. I feel that tour attendees should be somewhat familiar with the Dan Brown book or movie to be able to better follow the discussions. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave life to what we were viewing. A most enjoyable way to spend a morning in Rome.

This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was Roberto who managed the difficult task of blending a novel with the history of Rome in a fun and very entertaining way. We learned a great deal about Rome following the steps of Robert and Vittoria. We will never read the book in the same way again! Thanks Roberto - the best tour we've ever been on.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We loved every minute of this tour. The aptly named Robert brought the sights to life with his depiction of the Angels and Demons book. His passion for the story was matched only by his extensive knowledge of all things Roman. A novel and exciting way to see this awesome city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We loved this tour.. Robert was a fantastic storyteller and wove a suspenseful and interesting story as we toured some beautiful and surprising spots in Rome. I had never read the book but my husband has read it twice and we both enjoyed the tour! Roberto is fantastico!
