Description

We begin the tour at 6pm at Piazza della Minerva, next to the Pantheon – where Galileo Galilei was trialled and held liable for blasphemy.

We then head towards Largo Argentina, where you’ll learn about the exact location of Julius Cesar's assassination – one of Rome's most famous crime scenes.

In the Jewish Ghetto, you’ll hear about the many atrocities that occurred during the Nazi occupation in WWII. We’ll then walk to Campo de Fiori, a popular spot for tourists, which was the site of many public executions.

You’ll be captivated by the stories your guide will share with you about these dark chapters in Rome’s history!

The tour includes a coffee break at one of the best cafes in Rome, giving you a chance to rest your feet and use the bathroom. We end the tour next to a taxi stand where your guide will gladly help you with any other questions or recommendations.

Awesome Tour - Incredible Guide
Thoroughly enjoyed the Crime Tour of Rome with our tour guide Michele. This was one of the highlights of our vacation! Highly recommend this activity!!
Interesting and informative
We had already spent a week in Rome seeing all of the “headline” sites. This tour was a fantastic end to the trip — a great walking tour through some less known sites and some that we had seen but with new perspective on the events that happened there. I would highly recommend it.
Definitely worth the time and money!
Our tour guide Mike was awesome! He was so knowledgeable about the history behind these dark happenings and his method of storytelling was captivating! Being my second trip to Rome, I was insearch of the unconventional. This was it!
If you are thinking about doing this tour, DO IT. You won't be disappointed!
