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.

Fantastic tour - highly recommended. Roberto was knowledgeable about history and the book, and brought it all to life. Not necessary to have read the book beforehand but he made it great for any fan of the series. Didn't overload with history and dates. Tour group also bonded and made the experience even better. Very good!

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Our tour guide, Melanie, was a great story teller and had a detailed knowledge of the history of Rome.
I really enjoyed this trip and can thoroughly recommend it. You don't need to have a detailed knowledge of the Dan Brown story, just an interest in history and conspiracies. The tour starts with a brief synopsis of the Angels and Demons story so if it's been some time since you read the book or watched the film you will still be able to follow the links between each of the sites visited.

This was an interesting tour which took us to places we would not ordinarily see. Most amazing was the Santa Maria Della Vittoria which had one of Bernini's masterpieces. Keeping us entertained was our guide Claudia who was not just reading from the book but practically performing it. You end the tour at Castel Sant'Angelo which is worth a visit on its own anyway so was a good way to end.
