- Decoding the riddles and unwrapping the mysteries of Rome
- Discover the secrets of the Illuminati and lesser-known points of interest around the Italian capital
- Educational experience suitable not only for fans of Dan Brown's famous thriller
Your professional tour guide will take you around some of Rome’s most beautiful piazzas, in search of the truths hidden in ancient material such as the texts of Galileo, the sculpture of Bernini, and the Bible itself. You’ll unravel the enigmas at the heart of Dan Brown’s gripping thriller as you visit the sites his hero Robert Langdon races through, and learn how Christianity sometimes overlaps with Pagan symbolism.
Now move to the Castel Sant’Angelo, where the tomb of Emperor Hadrian resides, and find the fortified passageway known as Passetto di Borgo. Connecting the fortress to St Peter’s Basilica, it was created as a secret escape route for Popes down the ages. This is where your tour officially ends, but your thirst for knowledge will no doubt continue, and Rome is the best place to slake it. For this is a city of unrivalled power, mystery and intrigue.

A lot of fun to go along the path of the Illuminati and hear about the actual history of those locations! Seeing the statues and art that are mentioned in the book was fantastic. I re-read the book on the flight to Rome so it was very fresh in my mind. Our guide knew every step of the book and the his delivery was entertaining and educational. Loved it!
We made this tour on our 4th day in Rome and were discussing to cancel the tour, because we have seen already many sights, which are also approached on this tour. But this would have been a big mistake! Mike was a excellent guide and we got a completely new view on Rome and it's history! Mike told many stories, has a great humour and knows Rome in and out! We enjoyed the tour really a lot!
