Know More about this tour

Meet your ghost-expert guide near the Rialto Bridge and set off on your 1.5-hour walking tour to discover Venices haunted corners.

As darkness descends and the crowds of the day disappear, you will feel as if you have Venice to yourself, with only the sounds of lapping water and your groups echoing footsteps to accompany you.

Step down narrow passageways, trace silent canals and roam empty squares as your guide recounts six intriguing ghost stories and legends. Hear about the apparitions that stalk the citys medieval palaces, listen to tales of strange sea creatures and shiver at the story of Venices 15th-century butcher, Biasio, who murdered children and added their limbs to his tasty stews.

Walk over flagstones that hide ancient underground cemeteries and delve down sidestreets to stumble across architectural follies such as the Fortuny Palace and Bovolo Staircase, an ornate stone spiral staircase. Hear ghostly tales about the staircase and how it enabled a medieval nobleman to climb to his living quarters on horseback.

Delve into one of the citys last secret passages (access subject to water levels) and, as you walk, hear dark tales of the lover who used the alley to visit his married lover under cover of night.

Then, feel your blood run cold in the Calle dei Assassini, a shadowy street once frequented by killers and criminals, as your guide recounts the brutal murders that took place here.

After around 1.5 hours, make your way back to the Rialto Bridge, where your tour finishes.
