Mitä teet

Every city has a 'dark' side, and one as old as Rome is no different. We have ghosts, gruesome executions, and murders, and they can be strangely fascinating. Come along for an after-dark stroll to explore some of these tales of Rome.
We begin in one of Rome's liveliest squares, now full of bars and restaurants. However, it was once a place of execution, and reminders of this still stand - hear the tale of Giordano Bruno, one of Italy's greatest minds who got on the wrong side of the Church.
Then we take a stroll through the backstreets, arriving at one of the oldest bridges, which is haunted by one of Rome's most infamous characters.
Strolling down a medieval street, we come to a unique church, decorated with skulls, and home to a mysterious order of monks with a rather macabre task. From here, we reach the site of one of the world's most notorious historical prisons, then pass the tomb of the notorious Borgia Pope, before arriving at the home of an infamous poisoner.
Soon, we reach Castel Sant'Angelo, where we talk about one of Rome's most famous executions, which the city's people didn't want - the Cenci family.
Altogether, it's a fascinating alternative look at Roman history.
Other things to note
It's an easy walk, only lasting 2 hours maximum. We end close to some nice bars and restaurants, so I can show you to them if you like at the end.

I have lived in Rome for seven years, working as a tour guide, and this city has came to be my home. Every street and every corner is filled with wonderful people, architecture, and history. Originally from the north of England, I studied a Masters in Ancient History at the University of Wales, before moving to Rome to put the knowledge to use. At times I've also lived in Florence and New York City (a little different to Rome, I know!), but Rome will always be my love, and I want to help others love it just as I do. I aim to entertain as well as teach you some of the history and secrets.

It's a great tour if you want to get to know rome in a diffrent way. Our guide was really nice and answered every little question. You should book this tour at least once if you wanna have a great experience.

Beaucoup de choses apprises durant le tour. Lieux très sympathiques et dont on ne se douterait pas de l'histoire qu'il y a derrière. Le guide est lui aussi très sympathique.

Super visite guidée avec Benjamin. Nous avons découvert des lieux et appris des histoires fascinantes sur la ville de Rome et ses côtes plus sombres. Benjamin est passionné par ce qu'il fait et c'est un vrai plaisir de l'écouter raconter toutes ces histoires.

Excellent storytelling of the side of Rome you didn't know you wanted to hear. A real surprise highlight of my visit to Rome

We wanted to take this trip to have a look at Rome in an opposite way. While by day the city tells the glories stories of emperors and popes, the evenings and nights in Rome tell you something different. Benjamin was able to tell stories in such detail that I feel I have a more complete vision of the city. We were ready to be shocked – and we were – but I had a great laugh as well. Thanks Ben!

Ce tour du côté sombre de Rome a été très intéressant. Il y a de toute sorte d'histoire autour de certains lieux et monuments. Malgré que l'anglais ne soit pas ma langue maternelle, j'ai réussi à comprendre une très bonne partie. De plus Benjamin donne des conseils sur les bars/restaurants et des recommandations sur des activités à faire. Bref, une expérience à faire !
