What You Can Expect

Rome Angels and Demons Half-Day Tour

Ecstasy of Santa Teresa - Santa Maria Della Vittoria

A unique and interesting way to go sightseeing in Rome, this ‘Angels and Demons’ tour is inspired by Dan Brown’s novel, but there is no requirement for having it read it or being a fan of Brown’s (although it may help!). It’s a memorable way to explore the city’s lovely squares, fountains, architecture and churches, made interesting with the twist of visiting lesser-known sites where pagan and Christian symbolism intertwine.

Following your guide, who is knowledgeable about both Roman history and the details of the novel, walk along Rome’s hallowed streets, stopping to discover sights like a hidden passageway that dates back centuries. As you hunt for secrets left around the city by Bernini and Galileo, the two heads of the Illuminati, visit locations mentioned in the book and hear about the Four Altars of Science, which represent the four elements of water, air, fire and earth.

Sights you’ll see include the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, St Peter's Square, the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria and Ecstasy of St Teresa, Piazza Navona and the Church of Illumination, where you’ll glimpse the secret passageway that links the Vatican to Castel Sant'Angelo.

By the time the tour ends, you’ll have a new appreciation for Rome’s air of intrigue.

This was a really fun tour. especially if you have read the book. The guide was fun and gave us lots of little extras. The best thing though, was when we got to the Vatican the Pope was Saying mass. I felt like a teenager seeing the beatles the first time. It was fabulous.

Melanie our tour guide was just great. The way she narrated Dan Brown's story switching from fiction to history was really captivating. I would very much recommend this tour and it's one of my favorites.

Melanie was great. Best tour-guide, by far, we had in 3 weeks. St. Peter's was closed due to canonization and they planned an alternative trip to Tiber island, which was great. Even if you are unfamiliar with the book, this is a tour to take. Melanie can explain the book in a few minutes and the people that haven't read it followed.

Roberto was a fantastic guide providing the narrative of the books for those on the tour who had only seen the film, which this tour focuses on, in a fun and entertaining manner. Along with taking us on the journey of the book he painted a beautiful picture of Rome's past with all of his knowledge shared throughout the tour. He was happy to answer any questions in detail and gave us an in-depth insight into Rome, showing us how Dan Brown used Rome's history and some of it's many Bernini sculptures within the book.

The air-con coach to take us from place to place was welcomed between destinations, as well as the gelato/drink stop in a small cafe, as we visited during the hot, sunny season!

Regardless of if you have seen the book or the film, I highly recommend this tour. If possible I would book for one of the first days of your Rome visit as you get a good overview of Rome and can use it to get to grips with where things are. Myself and my friend being from two ends of the Angels and Demons spectrum, one being a huge fan of the book and film and the other having seen neither, found that this was out highlight of our Rome trip.

All in all, don't miss this tour!

This was an absolutely wonderful tour. Claudia P is a gifted story teller. We wish she did a million more tours. She is the guide you wish you could drag around Rome everywhere with you. The tour was also great - excellent grounding for Rome, withe info at every corner. The gelato came just in time! Thank you so much, I would buy this tour again now if I was coming to Rome again.
