Historical library of Rome: manuscripts, ancient books and marks of the Inquisition

Walk away from the crowded streets and famous monuments of Rome and discover stunning halls full of manuscripts and ancient books from centuries ago!

Join our unique tour of the Angelica Library, one of the most beautiful historical libraries of Rome, and take the incredible opportunity of a live view of original antique books with marvellous vignettes and beautiful hand-painted miniatures.

Discover the secrets of the Inquisition from the prohibited books that still bear the marks of censorship and relive the centuries-old conflict between heresy, witchcraft and the Roman Church.

You will admire the spectacular salon created by the great Italian architect Luigi Vanvitelli in the eighteenth century, where more than 100,000 books have been kept since then, making it a temple of culture of ancient times.

No surprise this stunning library was used to shoot parts of Angels and Demons, by Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks as the Harvard “symbologist” Robert Langdon!

This tour is available according to the library’s opening hours and can be customized to meet your requests and special needs! Please contact us!
