Rob Who led the tour is an exhilarating person, prepared, knowledgeable and above all has a great passion for his work.... With his narration and theatricality he made us "enter" the book and experience the emotion of angels and demons as protagonists...too bad that this tour is only in English and we were perhaps the only Italians to enjoy it with enthusiasm . Thank you for this fantastic experience

Die sehr sympathische Führerin Alessandra hat mit ihrer charmanten Art die Orte der Führung zum Leben erweckt, indem sie die Geschichte "Angels and Demons" nochmals nacherzählte. So hat man die Handlung im Kopf und ist selbst auf den Spuren der Illuminati. Zudem vermittelte sie noch einige Informationen zur Stadtgeschichte, sowie wies sie auf "Hidden Gems" hin, die einen Besuch wirklich wert sind!

We did the Angels and demons official tour. We were met by our lovely and very informative guide Allesandra. We were taken to all the main locations of the book/film in air conditioned bus which was great. Allessandra was very knowledgeable about Angels and demons but also on Roman history. We got loads of extra information about Rome and history on the tour. We finished our tour in Castel Sant'angelo which was amazing. It has a great view of Rome and the Vatican. Allesandra our guide was lovely made the tour very enjoyable.

Omg the best tour ever!! Rob was the best guide! Very knowledgeable and funny!!

Explore the Eternal City in a way that has never been seen before with this tour that was inspired by his worldwide bestseller. Navigate your way through Rome in your comfortable air-conditioned coach with the help of a professional guide and marvel at the serene churches and bustling squares as your feet walk over worn out cobblestone alleys and streets, reveling in the knowledge that the author himself must have been standing in the same spots, feeling as inspired as you are right now.

Make your way 'cross Rome (see what we did there?), stepping into Robert Langdon's shoes and following the notorious Path of Illumination while uncovering centuries-old secrets and solving mysteries that are yet to be unraveled. Visit the places made famous by the novel as the Four Altars of Science, like St. Maria del Popolo Church, St. Peter's Square, St. Maria Della Vittoria Church and Piazza Navona while admiring the works of the artist who literally marked the way, Gian Lorenzo Bernini. You will especially enjoy the final marker he placed, according to the novel, to signify the element of Water, the Fountain of the Four Rivers, a tribute to the four major rivers of the Ancient World, the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube, and the Rio de la Plata.

You will also get to explore the Church of Illumination itself, Castel Sant'Angelo, mere miles from the Vatican and housing Il Passetto, the secret passageway used by numerous Popes as an escape route out of Vatican City. Your tour will conclude at St. Peter's square.

Important Information

  • Though this is a tour, some of the churches you will be visiting may have restrictions on certain kinds of clothing so we recommend that you wear something that covers your shoulders and back and reaches below your knees.

  • Since the tour also involves a fair amount of walking, we recommend you wear some comfortable walking shoes.

Your mobile voucher will be sent to you immediately upon confirmation of your reservation. Please present the same along with some valid photo ID to your tour coordinator/guide upon arriving at the meeting/starting point for your tour.

Meeting Point

You will meet your tour group in Piazza del Popolo, on the steps of the Santa Maria del Popolo Church, which is located next to the big archway. Should you need map directions to get to the meeting point, please click here.
