About this trip

Lurking in shadowed vicoli (alleys), peering down from their creepy finestre (windows), crawling on their old ponti (bridges) and nascosto in piena vista (hiding in plain sight) are the phantoms of Italy! 


We will explore the beautiful landscapes of Italy with much grandeur...

Respected paranormal investigator and media celebrity, Shari DeBenedetti, member of the international blockbuster Travel Channel's Ghost Hunters, will escort you into the magnificent ancient wonder (with true grit hauntings) of her ancestral roots, la bella e romantica Italia!  

Join Shari DeBenedetti and Mysterious Adventures Tours on an adventure that is packed with sinister haunts found on the other side of bell’Italia! This spine-chilling escape is not for the faint of heart. You will visit some of the most beautifully celebrated sites in Italy, such as the Colosseum, the Vatican City, the monuments of Florence and the canals of Venice. But prepare yourself to explore hidden destinations that are not typically included in traditional tours of Italy ... for they may be too harrowing! 

We will go to ROME! 

Exploring haunted locations in Rome will highlight her long and rather tumultuous past. You’ll find more than a few skeletons (tens of thousands of them, in fact) with some fascinating and oftentimes gruesome tales to tell – buried just below the magnificent Italian capital in the Catacombs of St. Callixtus. Let's not forget the ancient Colosseum, where its historical gladiatorial bloody clashes, public executions and wild animal brawls set the stage for phantasmic fragments left behind. And then there's the Vatican City, who's host of secrets and demonic remnants from hundreds of exorcism are hidden in every dark corner of this empirical location. 

We will go to FLORENCE!

When we step out of the Tuscan sun and into the shadows of Italy, there is plenty of darkness to be experienced and, if one is unlucky, felt. For those seeking the darker side with a dash of adrenaline, Florence awaits our arrival to be discovered. Behind its absolute centuries-old beauty, Florence hides frightening secrets and legends in the heart of its historic streets and stones.

We will go to VENICE! 

Could the energies of the veins of water running though Venice contribute to her intensity of hauntings? Iconic treasures like Venice's ancient palaces, the Grand Canal, Saint Mark's Square and her unforgiving dark history certainly do ignite her off-the-chart mysterious vibes. Many historical events in the city on water have grown to become veritable legends. On the other hand, many Venetian popular beliefs and stories have evolved through the centuries to such extent that their roots go deeper in the psyche of Venice than some historical facts. Most terrifying of all, is the legendary Povegli Island, that few dare to explore. This petrifying location is one of the most supernaturally powerful and enigmatic in the entire world.

Come to Italy with Shari and our team of spectrally-enthusiast guides. They will navigate you into the dark and supernatural wonders of Bel Paese (the beautiful country)!

Our Ambassador: Shari DeBenedetti

Shari DeBenedetti was born in Schenectady, New York and moved to Boston with her family when she was 11 years old.  She graduated from Lynnfield High School and attended Bentley University while working full-time at an engineering firm where she still works part-time today.

Shari became interested in the paranormal field at a very young age as she experienced many strange and unexplained things. But it wasn't until the age of 25 that she began to research and investigate the paranormal, because the house she lived in at the time was believed to be haunted. Shari and her family had many frightening experiences there. It was so bad that she was afraid to go into the house alone, not knowing what was going to happen next. That's when she decided to start investigating with her friends and eventually formed a team. Shari wanted to help others who were experiencing paranormal activity so that they would be comfortable living in their homes.   

Shari first met Jason Hawes at a T.A.P.S. paranormal event many years ago and has remained friends with him, and other team members for many years. She was a paranormal investigator on seasons 10 and 11 on Ghost Hunters (Syfy Channel) and on Season 2 of Ghost Nation (Travel Channel/ Discovery Plus). Due to the restructuring of these powerful media outlets, Shari will continue being a valuable team member in the newly launched Travel Chanel’s Ghost Hunters

When Shari is not on the road filming, she enjoys spending time at home with her two children and she also still works part-time at an engineering firm. Whether for a client or for fun, over the years she has also investigated hotels/inns, historical properties, cemeteries, forts, lighthouses, office buildings, apartment complexes, and restaurants. She also still conducts private investigations with a few local teams in her area. 

What a proud opportunity to have Shari join up on this wonderlust tour to her Italy!

Each trip I take with Mysterious Adventures gets better and better! I don't know if I can truly encompass the Daughters of Hecate's Witches and Phantoms of Scotland trip was with just a few words, but I would say: spectacular (spooktacular?), magical, surprising! Not to mention the new friends made along the way. Maria has outdone herself again. From the preparation meetings beforehand, to the surprises we had during the trip, to the people we met - you name it, she did it A+. I cannot wait to book my next trip! Tracy M.

I had a phenomenal time touring Wales and all its ruins, castles, pubs and amazing history! Our tour was full of places to see everyday along with a great group to explore with. The ghost hunting was so fun too. The people of Wales were so nice which added to our enjoyment. Thank you Brian J. Cano and Mysterious Tours for this wonderful opportunity. I can’t wait to go back!
