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.

Highlight of Rome

Blitch was amazing! My husband and I had an absolute blast on this tour. Blitch's stories kept us on the edge of our seats and we spent most of the night either laughing or shrieking in fright. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome!

Ghost and Mystery Tour of Rome

A very interesting evening walking tour that explores some of Rome’s dark side through the ages. Our guide was very informative and entertaining. OK, some of this stuff may be more legend and myth than fact, but there are some historical facts too. A good...More

“I don’t like night tours. But I like Blitch.” - My Mom

Blitch was terrifically entertaining and informative. He cracked my mother’s tough-to-please exterior and had her laughing (and shrieking) all night. Most of all I appreciated how he kept the pace of the tour juuuuust right amongst the various velocities of the participants. Loved the mix...More

We had them printed but the tour guide already has your name and the number of people in your group. If you have mobile tickets, that should be fine...from my experience
