Not just for fans of Dan Brown, this unique tour takes you to some of the most beautiful piazzas in Rome, as well as lesser known sites away from the tourist trail where pagan symbolism and Christianity intermingle.

Fueled by a shared passion for Rome, history and Dan Brown's famous novel Angels and Demons, your talented tour guide will take you to the enigmatic sights mentioned in the novel, and reveal so much more about the mesmerizing city of Rome. You'll discover a hidden passage unused for centuries, and learn the secrets of the Illuminati and the Four Altars of Science, representing the four elements of earth, air, fire and water.

As you search for the secrets scattered throughout Rome by the twin heads of the Illuminati, Bernini and Galileo, you'll visit some of Rome's most beautiful sites to breathe the air of intrigue, mystery and revelation.

Highlights on the morning tour include:

  • St Maria del Popolo Church
  • St Peter's Square
  • St Maria della Vittoria Church and Ecstasy of St. Teresa
  • Piazza Navona
  • Castel Sant'Angelo
  • Church of Illumination to glimpse the secret passage connecting the Vatican to notorious Castel Sant' Angelo

My family's favorite tour of our trip. The guide Peter was amazing - so well informed and entertaining. People will enjoy this even if they haven't read the book or seen the movie!

If you have read the book by Dan Brown, this tour is a MUST! It is still worth doing if you have just seen the film as the key locations set in Rome are the same in both book and film. Roberto, our guide was passionate about the book and had so much information to tell us about Rome, the book and the Vatican. From start to finish we both were totally enthrawled with his re-enactment of the story and the details behind the architecture, statues, sculptors, author, fincional characters, religion etc etc. It was probably the best city tour we have EVER done, and we have done a lot!
There were more in the party than we were expecting but the company had been let down by another guide so two groups had to be merged into one. But it did not cause us any problems as we were able to hear everything Roberto had to say, had plenty of time and opportunity for photo's even on a SUnday! and even when we stopped for refreshments, it did not take too long for us all to be served. You don't walk all the way, a coach is laid on to get you between the initial locations and then you walk from Palazzo Navana to Castel san Angelo.
You visit some wonderful churches that are not on the main tourist route and they are beautiful. We have never been inside Castel san Angelo so this was a pleasant visit and the views from the top are magnificent.
All I can add is great, great, GREAT!!!
