What You Can Expect

Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour of Rome

Explore the mysterious Campo de' Fiori on your ghostly walking tour of Rome

Your evening tour starts at Sant'Andrea della Valle, where you’ll meet your guide in the shadows of the church’s baroque façade. Then begin your exploration into Rome’s thousands of years of ghostly history.

Walk along Corso Vittorio to Campo de’ Fiori, an ancient square that has been a lively part of the city since the 1200s. While you soak up the chilling atmosphere of the square after dark, hear about the supernatural activity that has taken place here over the centuries. Then head across Piazza Farnese, passing by Palazzo Farnese, on your way to Ponte Sisto, a 15th-century bridge. Cross the Tiber River, walking toward the Church of Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte, and stop at the site of the ancient Corte Savella prison, where Beatrice Cenci, a noblewoman from the late Renaissance era, was sentenced to death for the murder of her father. Was it fair? Hear about her story and her ghost that still calls for justice.

Continue along 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. The imposing structure has had many lives, from fortress to pope’s residence to prison, and as such, is shrouded in legends and mysteries.

Your tour ends here, where you are centrally placed to continue your night out in Rome on your own.

This tour was not our first choice for our very first tour and venturing out into beautiful Rome on October 21, 2016, but we were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed ourselves. We previously purchased an evening tour to include the 'pretty' attractions and gelato but it was cancelled by the operator. However, this tour, although dark in nature, was incredibly interesting, even suspenseful at times. And you can visit all of the common stops on the gelato tour easily on your own. Each stop was architecturally rich in character and steeped in history. Our tour with Ahmet was true to description, visiting all of the sites mentioned and several unmentioned. I will not comment specifically on the history he shared at each as that could 'give away' the stories and suspense. I will say that Ahmet's wonderfully energetic personality is what made the tour exceptional. Anyone can regurgitate history but it takes personality and passion to make it this enjoyable. He was able to make dark history truly fun - not scary at all. We laughed often but make no mistake, he is very much a subject matter expert. We also felt very safe on this tour as Ahmet pays close attention to his group. Mind you, this tour took place after dark in some pretty narrow, dark, mostly deserted alleys. Ahmet also shared practical tips about Rome so as not to get taken advantage of as tourists. For a single mom traveling with a teenage daughter, we are very appreciative that we got off the beaten path in Rome and had the pleasure of Ahmet's company! THANKS AHMET!

One of the most fun things we did in Rome! Our guide was great and we really enjoyed walking around the city learning obscure history. We took our 11 year old, not scary at all, and not a ghost hunting tour, more stories from the past about people who left their mark on Roman history. We booked this at the last minute and I'm so glad we did!

We loved this tour and it really was a highlight of rome. It was especially awesome to see the streets at night while with a tour guide and feeling safe.
