Full description
With churches and palaces casting shadows on the waters of the city's famed canals, Venice is at its most alluring after dark. Starting from St. Mark’s Square this 2-hour guided walking tour will showcase the most atmospheric sights of Venice by night.

We head towards Campo Santa Maria Formosa, stopping along the route to admire the splendid Angel Palace. Your expert guide will provide historical facts, quirky anecdotes, local legends, as well as tales of mystery and romance that take place in Venice.

On the way to Rialto Bridge you will stop to hear the story of Marco Polo on the site where his house once stood. Events connected with Venetian merchants will once again be brought to life in the ancient economic heart of the city and the Church of San Giacometto, one of the oldest churches in Venice. From the top of Rialto Bridge, you can admire the elegant palaces which line the Grand Canal, before continuing to the most celebrated Venetian theater - world-famous “La Fenice” Opera House. A few steps further will take you to the impressive external spiral staircase of Palazzo Contarini del Bolovo.

The tour showed Venice beautiful sides away from the hustle and bustle.

The tour guide was very personable and dedicated. The tour also took place with 4 people. The travel guide showed us places from his childhood. He explains the various monuments and the naming of places with a well-founded historical knowledge. The group also learned a lot about current Venice. Always my pleasure.

Great way to view the city without all of the daytime crowds. We had a wonderful host who made it special and was able to share personal details from growing up in Venice that added a personal touch and a modern viewpoint to this historic city.
