Full description
Join an unusual nighttime walking tour in Venice with a local guide, who will tell you about the city’s secrets and mysteries and also tell you some ghost stories. The 1 hour 45 minute walk begins in Campo San Bartolomeo, near the famous Rialto Bridge and continues from the Rialto area into Cannaregio and Castello. The itinerary may vary in order to avoid the most crowded areas and introduce you to the more intimate atmosphere that permeates the city at night. You’ll hear about the spirits of the night as you walk along alleyways, in courtyards, around the squares, and on the streets during the tour. There are intriguing ancient legends about Venetian leaders and notable citizens, and tales about ancient Venice's common people as well. Scary tales of more recent times will keep you alert during your walk! After the sun has set the city’s atmosphere lends itself to the supernatural, as the nuances of the evening bring even more suspense to the stories you’ll hear.

    This tour with Grace was excellent! I loved how she managed to blend ghost stories with historical facts about the city of Venice. In addition, she seemed genuinely animated by the telling of her stories. You have to go there by being open-minded and having the desire to listen to fascinating stories. Definitely recommend!
