Wat je gaat doen

Every city has a 'dark' side, and one as old as Rome is no different. We have ghosts, gruesome executions, and murders, and they can be strangely fascinating. Come along for an after-dark stroll to explore some of these tales of Rome.
We begin in one of Rome's liveliest squares, now full of bars and restaurants. However, it was once a place of execution, and reminders of this still stand - hear the tale of Giordano Bruno, one of Italy's greatest minds who got on the wrong side of the Church.
Then we take a stroll through the backstreets, arriving at one of the oldest bridges, which is haunted by one of Rome's most infamous characters.
Strolling down a medieval street, we come to a unique church, decorated with skulls, and home to a mysterious order of monks with a rather macabre task. From here, we reach the site of one of the world's most notorious historical prisons, then pass the tomb of the notorious Borgia Pope, before arriving at the home of an infamous poisoner.
Soon, we reach Castel Sant'Angelo, where we talk about one of Rome's most famous executions, which the city's people didn't want - the Cenci family.
Altogether, it's a fascinating alternative look at Roman history.

I have lived in Rome for seven years, working as a tour guide, and this city has came to be my home. Every street and every corner is filled with wonderful people, architecture, and history. Originally from the north of England, I studied a Masters in Ancient History at the University of Wales, before moving to Rome to put the knowledge to use. At times I've also lived in Florence and New York City (a little different to Rome, I know!), but Rome will always be my love, and I want to help others love it just as I do. I aim to entertain as well as teach you some of the history and secrets.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Ben, and it was made even better by the fact that we were the only two that had booked. Ben was really knowledgeable, had some good stories and was chatty throughout. At the end he gave us some recommendations for places to eat and drink.

Ben was excellent, a great story teller and showed up so many hidden gems of Rome. He also recommended good bars and restaurants for us. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

The tour was super interesting and a lot of fun! Ben went out all the way to make us feel welcome, even if he was on crutches due to a recent injury. We were really impressed by all the dark tales and creepy stories you never hear about in your glorified Vatican tours. So if you want to dive into the dark side of Rome with a really funny guy - go for the tour! We can highly recommend it and wish Benjamin all the best and hopefully book a tour for our next trip to Rome again :-) It was a true pleasure!

Benjamin is a great and dedicated guide. Even though he was injured he still came through and gave us an awesome tour around Rome. You can really feel his passion for the dark side of the roman history. He will also recommend you a few good spots for drinks/dinner which was a nice addition to his tour. If you‘re looking for a not-so-touristic-tour this is the one to get!

Great tour which is so so unique and worth every penny! Benjamin was an excellent host with a deep understanding of the city and had lots of interesting and creepy stories to tell. Would highly recommend.

Ben was a very humourous and knowledgeable tour guide. The tour was completely different from a typical tourist tour through the city of Rome. If you’re looking for a unique experience, make sure you book Ben’s tour.
