Angels and Demons Guided Tours

You can relive all your Robert Langdon fantasies as you retrace his steps on your Angels and Demons Rome tour. Here are some of the wonderful attractions you will visit on your guided tour.

St. Maria del Popolo Church

St. Maria del Popolo Church is a small temple with beautiful Renaissance decorations in its interiors. This Church is unlike other churches in Rome since it is not that high, has a practically bare ceiling but has remarkable decorations in each of its chapels. The Chapel Ceros is worth visiting as it houses two beautiful masterpieces by Caravaggio. The Chapel Chigi, built and decorated by Raphael, is another must-see chapel.

St. Peter’s Square

St. Peter’s Square was designed by Bernini during the 17th century. The square can house 300,000 people and is located in Vatican city, right at the foot of St. Peter's Basilica. Do spend some time in the square and admire Bernini’s work during your Angels and Demons tour.

St. Maria Della Vittoria Church

The St. Maria Della Vittoria Church appeared in the ‘Angels and Demons,' movie that starred Tom Hanks as Harvard Professor Robert Langdon. Revel in the candlelit atmosphere of the Church as you explore the extravagantly decorated interiors of the St. Maria Della Vittoria Church. Visit the Cornaro Chapel and marvel at the spectacular ‘Ecstasy of Saint Teresa’ sculpture made by Bernini-a sculpture widely regarded as one of the masterpieces of the Baroque period.

Piazza Navona

The Piazza Navona is a public square in Rome that is covered with three stunning fountains-the Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi, the Fontana Del Moro and the Fontana Del Nettuno. The Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi has four statues. The Fontana Del Moro or the "Seashell Fountain" was sculpted by Giacomo Della Porta. Bernini added the Moor figure to this fountain later on. The Fontana Del Nettuno was also created by Giacomo Della Porta in 1574. However, the fountain remained unfinished for nearly 300 years.

Fountain of the Four Rivers

The Fountain of the Four Rivers or the Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi was designed in 1651 by Bernini. The fountain is located right in the center of the Piazza Navona. The four statues on the fountain depict the most important rivers of the continents where Christianity had spread. The four rivers depicted in this fountain are the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Rio De La Plata.

Castel Sant’Angelo

Also known as Hadrian’s Tomb, the Castel Sant’Angelo is a fortress that is located on the right bank of the Tiber river. The Castle is a short distance from the Vatican and is made up of five floors. The upper part of the castle was the Papal residence and it is beautifully decorated with frescoes from the Renaissance era. The Castle also has an extensive collection of weapons that are worth visiting.
