\"The Da Vinci Code\" tours
Special Report: "The Da Vinci Code" tours
On a beautiful day in Rome, many are here on a religious pilgrimage, and others, well they're looking for the code.
Jennifer Paull, Fodors Travel
"I think a large part of why people want to follow the trail of this novel is that the destinations are all of these major world capitols that are really exciting but they are also really accessible."
Jennifer Paull is one of the editors of Fodors guide to "The Da Vinci Code." A novel and soon to be released movie about murder, mystery and the Vatican's best-kept secret, the bloodline of Christ.
"The novel has really given people a new way to look at these destinations and these sights."
Vatican City is of course one of those sights. Also not far from Rome, Milan where the Last Super painting is. A painting that may contain a clue to solving the code. And just 20 miles outside of Rome is Castle Gandolfo, the Pope's summer home where the one of the characters was taken by a Vatican guard.
"The Papal Palace itself is of course off limits to the public but you can go and visit, explore the town"
If exploring on your own isnít for you, many Boston area travel agents are now offering Da Vinci code guided tours.

"The tours have been done up specifically for people who are interested in the book who want to see where places they were filmed, things that were referenced in the story."
