The tour begins at Pantheon where Robert Langdom, the protagonist of Dan Brown’s book, casually arrives because he misunderstood a clue. His actual destination is the church of Santa Maria del Popolo in Popolo Square, that is also our second stop. The church is famous for his beautiful painting and his Chigi chapel, where Robert Langdom will find the first dead cardinal branded with a “EARTH” on his chest.Next stop will be St. Peter’s Basilica, the Centre of Christianity.

At the centre of the square there is an obelisk surrounded by a meridian with the wind rose. On the “ West Ponente” oval tile the protagonist finds another dead cardinal branded with “AIR”. Then , Langdom goes to the Vatican secret archives to look for information about the sect of the “Illuminati”.

From the Vatican you will head to the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, in which you will admire the famous Bernini’s sculpture “ Estasi di Santa Teresa”. Here Langdom finds the third dead cardinal branded with the word “FIRE”.

After that you will walk through the most important places of the old town centre, such as Repubblica Square and Navona Square, where you will enjoy the wonderful Bernini’s “Fountain of the four rivers” and the obelisk. According to the book, in this place Langdom finds the last dead cardinal branded with the word “WATER”.

From Navona Square you will reach the last stop that is Castle Sant’Angelo, gathering place of the Illuminati, famous for the “passetto”, an hidden passage that leads to the Vatican City, a shortcut often used by the Popes as a way to escape, and in the book used as a hideout for the assassin. Whether you read book or not, this tour allows you to visit Rome in a completely unusual and interesting way.

Guide was very knowledgeable and was really nice going to slightly quieter and unknown churches. It is quite a bit of walking but the guide was constantly telling us little facts which helped. I love the book but this tour gives you the rough outline of Robert’s trail and I would of loved some more less know facts about the book and Illuminati
