Not only to the 4 churches mentioned in the book, but several other places as well
Follow in the footsteps of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon and retrace the ancient Path of Illumination which lies hidden in plain sight throughout the streets and buildings of Rome. Explore the incredible pagan symbols and mysteries scattered throughout the Eternal City under the guise of Christianity.
Bring Dan Brown's best-selling novel Angels & Demons to life as you retrace the journey of protagonist Robert Langdon rushing across Rome in an attempt to identify a killer, foil a band of ancient assassins, and solve ancient and inscrutable mysteries.
You'll be accompanied by a private guide whose knowledge of pagan practices, symbolism, and Christianity puts that of the eponymous professor to shame. The guide will take you along each step of the Path of Illumination, including visits at each of the four altars of science.
The tour starts at the famous Chigi Chapel in the church of St. Maria del Popolo, at the Altar of Earth. The next stop is St. Peter's Church and Square, where the famed obelisk serves as the Altar of Air.
Moving on to the Church of St. Maria della Vittoria, you will get the opportunity to marvel at Bernini's Ecstasy of St. Teresa, which holds the dubious honor of "the most unfit ornament ever to be placed inside a Christian church." Finally, the tour concludes at the Navona Square at the Fountain of Four Rivers; also, unsurprisingly, the Altar of Water.
So if you are eager to unravel the mysteries of Angels & Demons, sign up for this tour: you will not be disappointed.
