Angels & Demons Tour in Rome

Castel Sant Angelo or Mausoleum of Hadrian in Rome
While following the excitement of Dan Brown’s sensational bestseller, Angles & Demons, you’ll visit famous sites on a unique treasure hunt through the Eternal City. First, dive into Rome's hidden history while experiencing some of the city’s most beautiful churches, fountains, and squares, such as Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Then, explore Rome’s most picturesque landmarks and stroll along timeless cobblestone alleyways, just as Robert Langdon did while unfolding mysteries.

The novel connected present-day Rome with its history in the 1600s when Inquisition trials and political machinations made the city the birthplace of The Illuminati. As one of the most influential secret societies, Galileo Galilei and Gian Lorenzo Bernini deposited clues around the city to create a Path of Illumination. The most important clues included a mysterious text from the poet John Milton, plus the Four Altars of Science, representing the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

Some of the sites you’ll visit include St. Maria del Popolo Church, St. Peter's Square, St. Maria della Vittoria Church, Piazza Navona, and the towering, cylindrical Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel). You’ll also view Il Passetto, the secret elevated passageway of the popes, from its exterior. Enjoy this thrilling and mysterious tour through historic Rome while illuminating the stories behind Angels & Demons!
