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.

Good to learn about history but boring

The tour was interesting however I found that it focused more on history as opposed to the legends and myths of the area. The guide was very knowledgeable but it was very hard to hear much of the information being given, it would have been...More

We booked onto this tour on Halloween night with the hope of learning more about the history of Rome and the ghost stories within it. This would have been good if we could hear. Our tour guide stopped at very awkward points (a busy piazza...More

So much fun!

We loved our tour with Blitch! Easily the best and most entertaining tour we’ve been on in Rome. Great stories, told in such a way that it feels more like theatre than a tour. Don’t miss this one!

Where was the ghost stuff?

Natalie was our guide and she is a very nice, inviting person that welcomed us to the tour. As people gathered on the steps, a man divided us into two completely disparately-sized groups (his was smaller and ours was huge, and we wished we had...More
