Highlights and what's included

  • Local Expert Guide


On these night tours of Venice you'll appreciate that Venice is a place of romance and mystery at night. Our Private Venice Ghost Walking Tours feature an itinerary that will take you on a journey through the hidden Venice where you will not only hear six intriging ghost stories that will bring a chill to the night's air, but you'll also be entertained by legends of sea monsters and the Venetians themselves that will include the legend of Marco Polo's wife.

In addition to the ghost stories and legends our Private Venice Ghost Walking Tours include an itinerary that will pass by many architectural treasures that are lost in the back-streets of the Hidden Venice. Your adventure will start at the Rialto bridge from where you'll descend into the labyrinth of the hidden Venice, crossing sleeping canals and abandoned campi, it will feel as if you have Venice to yourself as the only sounds you'll hear will be the echoes of distant footsteps.

In between the Ghost Stories, you'll hear other gruesome tales from Venice's past, including stories about an old prison where the poor in-mates lived in rat-infested cells that flooded during high tide. We'll take a stroll along the narrow alleyway called the street of the Assassins to recount the murders that have taken place there, as well as exploring an old campo that used to home one of the numerous cemetries in Venice. You'll also explore a secret passageway, one of the few surviving that were used by the inhabitants of palaces to flee from the authorities (subject to water-levels).

Our Private Venice Ghost walking tours also include architectural gems, and follies lost in the back-streets of Venice that will include the delightful Bovolo staircase built for a wealthy Venetian at a time when many Venetians still travelled around the city on horse-back. The elaborate staircase enabled the wealthy nobleman to ride his horse up to his private apartments within his palace.

Following a winding route through the labyrinth of back-streets you'll enjoy a very intimate experience of the Hidden Venice with your own personal family friendly guide. An enchanting route with many surprises along the way. Our Private Venice Ghost walking tours finish near the Rialto bridge where you'll enjoy a fine view of the main bridge over the Grand Canal.

I brought a school party to Venice this week and on Sunday 29 March we went on your Ghost Walk at 8.00pm. It was extremely interesting and all our students and staff enjoyed it enormously. The history of Venice was brought to life through a fantastic mixture of story telling and historical and geographical facts. Your guides engaged us all and gave us a tremendous introduction to Venice. I am already looking forward to booking your tour again when I bring the next school visit.
