Full description
Explore the Castello and Cannaregio areas of Venice on a 2-hour walking tour and find out what’s lurking in the dark. You’ll hear typical tales and stories of the city, but much more as well. Your guide will reminisce about the ghosts and apparitions that have always fueled the Venetian imagination.

You’ll hear about these spirits everywhere you go – along alleyways, in courtyards, around the squares and on the streets you cross during the tour. There are intriguing ancient legends about Doges 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 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 you’ll hear.

super exciting tour

Although we were a fairly large group of over 30 people, the audio equipment that was distributed in advance made it easy to understand everything. You can even connect your own headphones to the audio devices, but some are also distributed. The guide spoke in very clear and understandable English and brought the legends across very interestingly. It was definitely a nice way to get to know Venice in a different way. It is a must for anyone interested in mysticism and stories.
