Full description
Take a walk on the creepy side with this fascinating tour of Rome’s spookiest places. Together with an experienced guide, you’ll unearth some of the Eternal City’s darkest secrets, discover the ghost stories of landmarks such as the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Castel Sant’Angelo, and come face to face with the skeletal remains of some of Rome’s previous residents at the Capuchin Crypt. This walking tour is an intriguing dive into Rome’s long and twisted history. Visit the Capuchin Crypt and descend deep underground to see a side of Rome that you’ve never seen before. The tour continues above ground with a walk through Rome’s cobbled streets to reach the Pantheon where demons were said to roam free, looking for innocent souls to tempt. See the Piazza Navona a beautiful Baroque square known for its stunning architecture and dazzling fountains, as well as the ghosts that haunt the palaces facing the square.

Juan was our tour guide and he was amazing. So charismatic and friendly and most importantly he was knowledgeable about every landmark we visited. He breathed life into the locations around rome and added to the experience we had. If you get a chance make sure you get Juan. Thanks again!!

Gabby was excellent. We booked this tour following feedback from other reviews. Our teenage daughter really enjoyed it and said it was the best bit from the trip. The crypt was fascinating and impressive. It was a lot of walking but we saw things that we never would have discovered otherwise and we actually ended up revisiting some of the places the next day. Gabby was engaging and friendly and pitched the tour in just the right way. Would definitely recommend if you have teenagers or slightly older children.

Just amazing! Everything about this experience was great. Gabby was knowledgeable and enthusiastic (even in the scorching heat and even though it was just myself and my fiancée on the trip…we were incredible lucky to get Gabby all to ourselves!). The crypt was fascinating and shocking and Gabby was able to give us some great history and information around this. The rest of the trip was spent walking to landmarks such as the Pantheon and Piazza Navara- Gabby had some incredible stories (fact and legend) which she shared with us and her knowledge is just second to none! On top of this, we felt that Gabby really goes above and beyond. It was our first time in Rome and Gabby gave us recommendations for places to eat, places to see and various other tips which we really appreciated! I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to learn more about Rome, especially the darker side of history! Gabby we cannot thank you enough for your time, knowledge and kindness! Thank you x
