Rome: All the ‘Angels and Demons’ You Can Handle

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  02.05.09 | 10:04 AM ET

As we’ve noted before, expectations (and concerns) are high for Dan Brown-related tourism in Rome as the release of the big-screen adaptation of “Angels and Demons” draws nearer.

The movie isn’t due out until May, but that hasn’t stopped Roman tour operators from getting an early start. In fact, as Jessica Spiegel points out in a post at WhyGoItaly, “Angels and Demons” themed tours have been popular with visitors to Rome ever since the Dan Brown phenomenon really took off a few years back. She’s got the details on six different tours on offer in the Eternal City (Six! And people say nobody reads anymore), along with a stern warning to anyone who might be planning to bring a chisel along for the ride. For those so inclined, the movie trailer is after the jump.

When I was in Rome a few years ago I did this myself. I re-read the book, and then marked off all the places that had items and marked them.  No need to pay for a tour.
