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.
