Explore the heart of Italy’s ancient capital and hear tales of myth and legend on this 1.5-hour ghost and mystery walking tour of Rome. When the sun sets, a darker and more mysterious side of the city comes to life. Make your way along winding alleyways and through ancient squares in Rome’s age-old center, and listen as your guide regales you with enthralling historical and supernatural mysteries. Discover highlights such as the Ponte Sisto, Palazzo Farnese and the Castel Sant'Angelo illuminated at night.


  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • See the sights illuminated at night
Meet your guide beneath the imposing Baroque façade of Sant'Andrea della Valle church as night begins to fall. Then, set off to begin your ghost and mystery walking tour. With thousands of years of ancient history round every corner, Rome is the perfect place to explore the borders between fact and legend.

Head along the Corso Vittorio to the beautiful yet mysterious Campo de' Fiori. This ancient town square has been a vibrant center of commerce and culture since the 13th century, but illuminated under the cover of dusk, it takes on an altogether more sinister feel. Listen as your guide talks of the ghostly goings-on to which the Campo de' Fiori has played host over the centuries.

Wander through the impressive Piazza Farnese, home to city highlights such as the 16th-century Palazzo Farnese — considered by many to be among the most important High Renaissance palaces in Rome. Cross the Tiber River towards the church of Santa Maria dell'Orazione e Morte and admire the elegant Ponte Sisto, beautifully lit against the darkness of night.

Discover the site of the ancient Corte Savella Prison, where late-Renaissance noblewoman Beatrice Cenci was unfairly put to death for her father’s murder in the 16th century. It is said that in early September each year — on the anniversary of her torture and death — her ghost can still be heard vainly appealing for justice to finally be served.

Explore the Via dei Banchi Vecchi and the Via del Banco di Santo Spirito with your guide, and arrive before the imposing Castel Sant’Angelo — commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a private mausoleum from 123 AD. Once a fortress, Papal residence and prison, the Castel Sant’Angelo is shrouded in mystery and legend.

After 1.5 hours exploring the winding alleyways through Rome’s ancient heart, your tour will conclude at Castel Sant'Angelo.

This tour was not our first choice for our very first tour and venturing out into beautiful Rome on October 21, 2016, but we were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed ourselves. We previously purchased an evening tour to include the 'pretty' attractions and gelato but it was cancelled by the operator. However, this tour, although dark in nature, was incredibly interesting, even suspenseful at times. And you can visit all of the common stops on the gelato tour easily on your own. Each stop was architecturally rich in character and steeped in history. Our tour with Ahmet was true to description, visiting all of the sites mentioned and several unmentioned. I will not comment specifically on the history he shared at each as that could 'give away' the stories and suspense. I will say that Ahmet's wonderfully energetic personality is what made the tour exceptional. Anyone can regurgitate history but it takes personality and passion to make it this enjoyable. He was able to make dark history truly fun - not scary at all. We laughed often but make no mistake, he is very much a subject matter expert. We also felt very safe on this tour as Ahmet pays close attention to his group. Mind you, this tour took place after dark in some pretty narrow, dark, mostly deserted alleys. Ahmet also shared practical tips about Rome so as not to get taken advantage of as tourists. For a single mom traveling with a teenage daughter, we are very appreciative that we got off the beaten path in Rome and had the pleasure of Ahmet's company! THANKS AHMET!
