Join an evening walking tour of Rome, guided by captivating storytellers, offering a blend of the macabre and the magical. Uncover the Eternal City through its most spine-chilling tales. Be led into the heart of darkness, where the shadows of history dance with the flickering streetlamps of Rome. Begin your journey at the Capuchin Crypt, where the line between art and mortality blurs in a silent meditation on life and death. Find out why this place is home to over 3,500 skeletons, with bones decorating the walls and even the ceilings. As the twilight deepens, head to Rome's historic center, where each cobblestone has a dark tale. Feel a ghostly aura near the Trevi Fountain, a tragic love entwined with eternal longing, and tread softly by the Pantheon, where a gruesome tale is said to have inspired the narrative of Sweeney Todd. Then, follow your guide through the site of a WWII event that shadows the city's streets, hinting at the spectral handprint of a noblewoman with a tragic end. These stories, each a piece of Rome's heart, are told with a reverence for the past and a flair for the dramatic.
