About
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.

A different perspective of Rome & a quality tour!
This tour highlights some of the darker sides of Roman history and is packed with interesting stories. Roberto was an AMAZING tour guide and story teller. He brought history back to life. This is not your American ghost tour- it’s so much better. You get to visit sites and hear about some of the dark events that happened there. There are some ghost stories sprinkled throughout though- which are fun! Fun to do as a couple, with friends and teens!

Great experience, not to miss in Rome!
Aug 2021 • Family
Great activity to enjoy in Rome and learn about the buildings and Legends in the City. Very pleasant walk at night time, beating the summer heat in Rome. Our guide Sara knew a lot and made it a great experience. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide was very nice; only reason it got two stars. However, with no headphones and normal nightlife, it was very hard to hear her with face masks. The first 4 stories were not very interesting and so we cut our losses and left. We did multiple tours in Rome and all of Italy and this was by and far our least favorite.

Fantastic! Best tour in Rome!
Our host met us with a smile and intrigued us with a preface of the night to come. She proceeded to bring us up and down several streets, provide us with history and lore, and kept us wanting more! You would think a hour-ish walking tour would be enough- but it wasn’t! She was fabulous, and easily the BEST tour we did in Rome! To give you an idea we did the colosseum, Vatican, and pantheon tours. Not that they weren’t great sites to see, but the tours were “meh” in terms of entertaining and informative. Where the other tours were monotone, this tour was lively! I HIGHLY recommend this tour to ANYONE- you want history? You want fun facts? You want to walk away feeling you actually know more than you could read in a book? This is your tour!

Really engaging tour
Jul 2021
A really captivating and well-paced tour. Our tour guide Serena was well knowledgeable and answered all the extra questions we had about the city and the life there. 1,5 hours went by flyingly, and we learnt a lot of interesting facts. It’s a great plus that the tour takes place in the evening, so those who cannot stand the heat that sometimes can be in Rome, it’s a perfect option for after dinner walk in more bearable temperatures than 36-degree sun.

Loved this tour!!
Rob was fantastic! He was such a great story teller. I brought my 12 year old daughter and she loved it! It was a small group, felt safe with COVID. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun time with interesting history.

Great!
Great Tour! Out Guide led us through the scariest but also most interesting parts of Rome and told stories about the dark side of the city.
Perfect for everyone interested in history (especially the medieval times).

Evening ghost tour

The tour with Divan was excellent. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. My kids 10 and 12 thought it was brilliant - especially so close to Halloween.
