What To Expect
Our Venice Ghost Walking Tours feature a delightful sightseeing route through the Hidden Venice that provides the perfect stage upon which your guide will introduce you to Ghost Stories Legends from Venice's Past & Present. Stroll through narrow passageways, cross sleeping canals and abandoned piazza's (campi) to discover that Venice by night is a city of romance and mystery.
During our Venice Ghost Walk you'll hear six intriguing ghost stories that will bring a chill to the nights air. Throughout these 90-minute Venice Ghost Walking Tours your knowledgeable and entertaining guides will also entertain you with legends about Sea monsters & the Venetians themselves that will include the tale about Marco Polo's wife.
Mind your step, as you follow your guide on our Ghost Walking Tour of Venice as you don't want to wake the dead! We'll cross several Ancient cemeteries hidden beneath the streets and campi of modern-day city of Venice.
And as you navigate the labyrinth of the Hidden Venice you'll see numerous architectural gems lost in the back-streets of Venice that include the famous Bovolo staircase. Built by a wealthy Venetian, at a time when Venetians still travelled around the city on horse-back, this elaborate staircase enabled the nobleman to ride his horse up to his private apartments.
On our Venice Ghost Walking Tours you'll explore a secret passage-way, one of the few remaining ones left in the city. The lover of a noble Venetian lady used this passageway to gain access to her private apartments without the knowledge of her husband (access subject to water-levels).
With stories of rat-infested prison cells that flooded during high tide, and a stroll along the "Calle dei Assassini" you'll enjoy our Venice Ghost Walk with many surprises along the way. The Tour ends close to the Rialto Bridge.
