Dark Rome began by taking a small group of visitors around the historic center of Rome and telling them the little-known stories, mysteries, and legends that would bring the ancient streets to life. One tour led to another and now Dark Rome operates well beyond Rome – in the Vatican, Florence, Milan, Venice, and Naples – as one of the largest tour operators in Europe.
