On this tour, you will walk the narrow and dark streets of the old Rome, learn the ghost stories both old and recent, and even try and search for Rome’s most notorious ghosts.

Explore the haunted squares where witches were executed to please the blood-thirsty crowds, and bridges cursed by the Emperors. Visit the most haunted places in Rome’s historical center and learn about the paranormal activity, poltergeist, and apparitions that have taken place.

Listen to the horror stories told by your tour-guide while walking the cobbled streets that had seen hundreds of people murdered or executed. See Rome’s attractions like ancient Via Giulia, Campo de’Fiori, and Castel Sant’Angelo from a different angle.

The tour ends at Largo di Torre Argentina, a central location near the transportation hub of Piazza Venezia.

My boyfriend and I did this ghost tour when we visited Rome. I had been on a similar tour before and wanted to see if anything like it was offered in Rome, and found this one.

The tour started at the perfect time, just when the sun went down. The guide (Max) was genuinly interested in the history and stories he told us about, which made the tour much more entertaining and interesting.

The ghost aspect of the tour felt like an extra touch to the already very interesting stories. The guide brought dowsing rods and showed the group how they worked, and used them throughout the tour, which was a cool addition!

We definitely recommend this tour! In the daytime you just see Rome as a beautiful city and don’t really think of what went down there many years ago. The stories told give a good picture of what it was like in Rome for those that lived before us.

If haunted or spooky history is your thing, this tour is definitely for you! Maxim was a great tour guide and his knowledge and story telling style was enjoyable. Would recommend

This was an enjoyable tour around some some of the lesser known parts of the city. Max, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed describing the factual events of times gone by.
I wouldn’t so much say this was a ghost tour but more of a grisly history walk…….but who knows, you may see a ghost!
It lasts approx 1.5 hours and the time went quickly. Thank you Max for a different, enjoyable and interesting evening

We decided to spend Halloween doing the Haunted Rome Ghost Tour and it didn’t disappoint. Lots of interesting history and gory history of Ancient Rome. The guide was very interesting and provided lots of extra pieces of information along the way. Our party would definitely recommend this tour, and were delighted to be able to see and understand parts of Rome we hadn’t covered on other aspects of our trip.

Thank you to our vampire tour guide! 🧛🏻‍♀️
