ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Angels & Demons Tour, Rome, LazioA unique and interesting way to go sightseeing in Rome, this ‘Angels and Demons’ tour is inspired by Dan Brown’s novel, but there is no requirement for having it read it or being a fan of Brown’s (although it may help!). It’s a memorable way to explore the city’s lovely squares, fountains, architecture and churches, made interesting with the twist of visiting lesser-known sites where pagan and Christian symbolism intertwine. Following your guide, who is knowledgeable about both Roman history and the details of the novel, walk along Rome’s hallowed streets, stopping to discover sights like a hidden passageway that dates back centuries. As you hunt for secrets left around the city by Bernini and Galileo, the two heads of the Illuminati, visit locations mentioned in the book and hear about the Four Altars of Science, which represent the four elements of water, air, fire and earth. Sights you’ll see include the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, St Peter's Square, the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria and Ecstasy of St Teresa, Piazza Navona and the Church of Illumination, where you’ll glimpse the secret passageway that links the Vatican to Castel Sant'Angelo. By the time the tour ends, you’ll have a new appreciation for Rome’s air of intrigue.Duration: 4 hoursStop At: Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo, Rome, LazioPassing byDuration: 10 minutesStop At: St. Peter's Square (Piazza San Pietro), Vatican City, LazioPassing byDuration: 10 minutesStop At: Santa Maria della Vittoria, Rome, LazioPassing byDuration: 10 minutesStop At: Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome, LazioPassing byDuration: 10 minutes
