Full description
When the sun sets in Rome another side to the city comes to life. This darker, more mysterious Rome is one where facts and legends are intertwined to stimulate the imagination as much as the eye. On this 90-minute evening tour, you'll discover the sunset Rome known only to a select few!

Your guide will bring the Eternal City’s most enthralling historical and supernatural mysteries to life in a highly entertaining and informative tour. You will stroll along winding lanes in the city's historic center and hear ghostly tales that form part of a lesser-known history of Rome.

Departing from Sant'Andrea Della Valle Church, you will walk in the shadows of sights such as the Campo de Fiori, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, Via del Governo Vecchio, Via Giulia, Piazza Farnese, and Castel Sant'Angelo. Prepare to be a little spooked, but expect to be highly entertained!
