The Nocturnal Rome Experience

Welcome to my introduction! My name is Eliphas, and I'm a ninth-generation Roman who's thrilled to share my passion and knowledge of my beautiful city with you. As the manager of numerous cultural and archaeological sites, including the Pantheon, Castel Sant'Angelo, and Palazzo Venezia, I have spent the past 17 years deeply immersed in Rome's rich history and customs. My name may sound exotic, but it actually comes from my father's love of theology, esotericism, and astronomy - he wrote a book on the subject and co-founded the first spiritual club in Rome and beyond. With my extensive experience and insider's knowledge, I can't wait to show you Rome's hidden gems, share captivating stories, and create unforgettable memories of the Eternal City.

Tour description

This is an intimate evening stroll through an enchanting Rome bathed in moonlight, free from the vast crowds of tourists that fill the streets during the day.
In a small group of a maximum of eight people, we will discover the most important places of interest such as the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi fountain, the Colosseum, the Castle of the Angel, Piazza Venezia, the Capitoline Hill, the Campo de Fiori, Trastevere and more.
You will receive unique insight into the rich history, culture and customs of Rome.
As a proud ninth generation Roman who has worked for almost 20 years in this field , I will lend my knowledge and passion to guide you through Rome's magical nocturnal atmosphere to the glorious monuments that have earned Rome its sterling reputation.
After the evening culture walk, we'll head to a famous local pub where you'll meet a diverse group of locals, expats, and travelers.
It's no coincidence that in the best films set in Rome, from Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" to "Roman Holiday", some of cinema's most iconic scenes were filmed under moonlight.
And to make sure you capture the magic of the night forever, with your permission, I'll include a photo shoot of the experience.
You'll receive your personal, high-quality photos of Rome's most beautiful cultural attractions and iconic movie locations you visit, making sure you have memories to last a lifetime.

Fantastic 2.5 hour tour of the major sights in the heart of Rome! We took the 10:00pm tour and loved seeing the buildings and monuments all let up without the crowds and heat during the day. Eliphas was extremely knowledgeable, funny, paced the tour beautifully, and truly seemed interested in making it the best possible experience for us. Plus he took pictures of us at the most iconic sights, which was a great memory of our evening and trip. Highly recommend!

This tour was excellent! A perfect mix with an overview of the rich culture and history of Rome with a nice social aspect to end the night. The tour guide was kind enough to make modifications as per our request and served as a photographer for us (he had a professional camera too)! He went above and beyond to make the tour memorable and ld highly reccommend booking him if you are looking for a special and unique view of Rome!

Rome is beautiful at night! Crowds and heat less intense, and details of monuments, churches, ruins more defined against night sky. In what seemed to be a casual stroll we viewed so many major attractions as well as gems we never would have noticed. Eliphas was a pleasure to be with and shared the history of all these places. We feel fortunate to have chosen this experience and highly recommend it- early in your trip to Rome! We will be revisiting many of these sites during the day-and night. As well as the gelato shops he recommended! Grazie mille & arrivederci!

Beautiful experience super recommended. We booked this tour to see Rome through the eyes of those who live the city every day, able to grasp the most beautiful and fascinating details that it is difficult to observe as a simple tourist, what can we say, with Eliphas we are fully satisfied! Fantastic and well-prepared person, it was a real pleasure to walk with him on an exciting journey for anyone who wants to visit the city. Thanks Eliphas see you for the next gelato
