Go beyond a straight tour of Rome’s top attractions with this alternative sightseeing experience, a ghost and mystery walking tour. Exploring at night allows you to avoid daytime heat and see the city anew. The atmospheric alleys and lit-up attractions (Campo de’ Fiori, Castel Sant’Angelo, and Palazzo Farnese) of the historical center take on an otherworldly glow as your guide brings supernatural and historical mysteries to life.

What to Expect

This ghost tour begins at Sant'Andrea della Valle church in central Rome where you’ll greet your guide at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled evening tour.

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.

Yes you can. We booked online literally the night before the tour. I used viator, but I think they have a link from several websites.
