We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Retrace the footsteps of the great Raphael, Bernini and Galileo that were supposedly part of the Circle of the Illuminati. Along the way you will have the chance to visit some of the most beautiful sites and churches in Rome.

Illuminati, designation in use from the 15th century, assumed by or applied to various groups of persons who claim to be unusually enlightened. The word is the plural of the Latin illuminatus (“revealed” or “enlightened”). According to adherents, the source of the “light” was viewed as being directly communicated from a higher source or due to a clarified and exalted condition of the human intelligence. Their teachings combined something of Egyptian Hermetism, Christian gnosticism, Jewish Kabbala, alchemy, and a variety of other occult beliefs and practices.

Start this adventure at Santa Maria del Popolo square where you will visit the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo and the mysterious Chigi’s Chapel. Reach the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Vittorie and admire the Ecstasy of St. Teresa, a sculptural group that is regarded as one of the major Baroque masterpieces by Bernini.

Your journey continues along the Path of the Illuminati: visit the Pantheon, the Fountain of the Four Rivers in Navona Square, and admire Castel Sant’Angelo; where your private tour guide will reveal the secret stories and tales behind these places full of mysteries.

End your experience in St. Peter’s Square that hides mysterious and alchemical symbols.

  • According to my experience angels and demons is a tour teenagers usually love! The mystery behind the story and the search of the truth and fake part of it make the experience very interesting! This tour always give us the possibility to narrate interesting tips about the unofficial history and to speak about messages hidden in symbols.

    Angel and Demons tour it should be a must for those visiting Rome! A good guide is also the key of a great tour. Serena was absolutely fantastic, very professional, knowledgeable of history art and religion and a great company. If you happened to be with her you won’t be disappointed, we’ll ask for her again!

    Ciao Eyes of Rome,

    The Angels and Demons Tour is definitely a MUST to me! Can't really miss it on my next trip.......my brother and I are coming soon to Rome. Our wives are not great fans instead. Do you recommend me to book this tour just for my brother and myself or do you think our wives will get entertained and enjoy the tour?
