Full description
Enjoy a walk around the Rialto Bridge area and its market to see where Venetians do their daily shopping. Afterwards, you’ll visit some typical bacari, which are small bars favored by locals. Al Volto, Al Portego, Do Spade are small places to have an aperitif or ombra, accompanied by some classical Venitian cicchetti.

Venetians call a glass of wine an ombra, and cicchetti are small appetizers of fish, seafood, meat, or vegetables. It is a Venetian tradition to meet after the work to enjoy a glass of wine and an appetizer and catch up on the news of the day. Join them in this tradition during your 4-hour excursion.

Explore the Castello and Cannaregio areas of Venice and find out what’s lurking in the dark. You’ll hear typical tales of the city, and listen to your guide’s stories about the ghosts and apparitions that have always fueled the Venetian imagination.

These spirits are said to lurk along alleyways, in courtyards, around the squares, and on the streets you’ll come across during the tour. There are intriguing ancient legends about notable citizens and tales about Venice's commoners as well.

Scary tales of more recent times will keep you alert during your walk through Venice. 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.
