Dark Ages of Rome Night Walking Tour with Hidden History & Hauntings

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Summon the specters of the Dark Ages and rediscover the history Rome would rather forget. This night-time tour combines eerie sights you won’t see on other tours, dark tales spun by a master storyteller and unique views of famous monuments, including Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, Campo de’ Fiori and Castel Sant’Angelo.
  • Opt for a different kind of sightseeing trip on a ghost tour of Rome 
  • Enjoy a different view of the city's illuminated landmarks at night
  • Beat the daytime heat and explore in cooler evening temperatures 
  • Listen as Rome’s history comes to life through sinister stories
What to Expect
This ghost tour begins at Sant'Andrea della Valle church in central Rome where you’ll greet your guide. From there, embark on a journey into the ancient city’s dark heart. Stroll along Corso Vittorio to Campo de’ Fiori, a place where many say that paranormal activity occurs regularly. Cross the Tiber River on the 15th-century Ponte Sisto and stop at haunted sites such as Corte Savella prison and Church of Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte. Listen to spine-chilling tales of restless spirits and resident ghosts rooted in Rome’s history. After continuing down 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, you’ll bid farewell to your guide.

Great time! The guide was fantastic and very enthusiastic about the stories told. Would recommend this tour for something different than the norm.

It was billed as a ghost tour and I think 2 were mentioned in passing... there was a lot of walking and not a huge amount of storytelling and what stories were told were not overly engaging. Not brilliant to be honest.More

Is there contact info for the tour group you can reach out to? It was very laid back, we initially thought the tour guide was another participant. LOL

Hi, this question came directly to me, but you’ll have to reach out to the vendor themselves. Hope you have a good trip!

I have an 11 and 20 year old. They both loved the stories. They are into history so that may be why my 11 year old was not bored.
