Trip Overview

On this privately guided trip, we'll take you beyond the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain and introduce you to an even more mysterious metropolis. Descend beneath Rome’s streets and behind its locked doors to explore hidden and overlooked places, witnessing a capital city that most tourists rarely experience—strange, magical, and filled with intrigue. It will be a week filled with stories, myths, and secrets, shining a spotlight on the surprises scattered above and beneath the city. You'll have a balance between time with your guide, and time to wander and get lost on your own, as well. By the end of the week, you'll have witnessed a side of the Eternal City that you’ve never seen before. 


Itineraries and daily schedules are subject to change. We expect to do everything listed in the itinerary, though the order may be rearranged based on weather or other local conditions.

Trip Leader

Felipe Trigo
Felipe Trigo is a historian, trip guide, and events whiz with a degree in History from Barcelona University. He curates immersive, dynamic itineraries that explore history through the most surprising and hidden elements within the city, such as visits to normally off-limits private collections and houses, hidden bunkers and shelters, and performance events, theatrical tours, concerts, and dinners in the most unusual locations. Inspired by a special devotion to stage arts, Felipe has directed the underground cabaret company Kriminal Kabarett since 2011. For the past five years, he has served as co-director for Hendrick’s Congress for Curious People in Spain. He has been creating and leading trips for Atlas Obscura since 2018, welcoming travelers to discover the myths and mysteries of Barcelona, Rome, and soon Andalucia and Tuscany.

Additional Info


The cost of this trip is $4,230 per person, based on two or more travelers, and double occupancy at a four-star hotel during low season. Hotel prices may increase during high season, which will influence the cost of the trip depending on your dates. For a single occupancy room, there will be a supplement (rates vary depending on seasonality). The maximum group size is five people.


The starting per person price is based on six nights of accommodation at The Argentina Residenza Hotel (four stars) or a location of equivalent quality. If you're interested in a different level or style of accommodation, we'd be happy to discuss options and price points.

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to three miles over the course of each day and remaining on their feet for longer periods of time. While we can tailor the pace and activity level to your group, note that many places are best reached by foot, and require walking over cobblestone and other uneven ground.
