Tour itinerary

The route takes you to:

  • St Peter's Basilica, where the ghost of Julius Caesar is rumoured to roam late at night.
  • Castel Sant'Angelo to feel the eerie presence of the ghosts of Beatrice Cenci and Mastro Titta. Many people were executed at Castel Sant'Angelo and it is not unusual to hear their cries rising again from the ancient stones of the Castle. The most famous is certainly that of Beatrice Cenci, a young and beautiful Roman noblewoman, who was beheaded for the murder of her abusived father. If you're (un)lucky, you may see the ghost of Mastro Titta, the famous Roman executioner, who walks along the alleyways of the city at dawn. He is said to have killed 516 people from 1796 to 1864.
  • The Pantheon has played host to a number of "supernatural" events over the years. In 609 AD, the Pantheon was converted into the Church of Santa Maria and the Martyrs. As soon as the building was blessed, legions of terrifying devils, who had lived there undisturbed for centuries, emerged and screeched out of the central opening in the dome. They would never return to the Pantheon but you may find them lurking in the alleyways around the city!
