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 Churchand 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 Rives, 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 the Castel Sant'Angelo.
