What to expect
Meet your guide near the famous Rialto Bridge in central Venice and set out to explore the moonlit streets of Venice. As you stroll the eerie backstreets and canals, learn about the ghosts that haunt the city’s royal palaces, the ancient cemeteries that lie beneath the city streets, and the mythical creatures that reside in the Venetian canals. Stop to admire the distinctive Bovolo staircase, which look even more impressive by night, and hear gruesome stories about the butcher Biasio, infamous for mixing human remains into his sausages. Finally, venture down a secret passageway, guided by torches, and visit Calle dei Assassini (Assassin’s street) and learn how it became notorious for robberies, murders, and gangsters. Your tour ends back by the Rialto Bridge in central Venice.

A great tour of learning about Venice. Guide was informative. A bit of walking but worth it. You get to hear stories of happenings in the city.

Fun and entertaining tour
Oct 2019
We love to do ghost tours when we are traveling. This was fun and entertaining with some good stories. Not crazy scary, but interesting nonetheless and a good sort of ‘behind the scenes’ of Venice history and some things you wouldn’t normally read about. Our guide, Christina, was great, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable. It’s fun and I’d recommend.

Dear Client, Thank for your positive feedback and recommendation! I have already forwarded your comments to Cristina - thanks for appreciating her knowledge and enthusiasm! I am happy to read the tour was fun and entertaining. Indeed it covers the more off the beaten track and less touristy parts of Venice and features many interesting ghost and legends stories. Thank you for joining our tour! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

Large group. Very devoid of actual information and clarity- vague stories with little grounding. We ended up leaving before the tour was over.

We missed the tour
Sep 2019
Dirtections for where we were to meet were poor. We were "at the statue," but in the wrong plaza about 100 feet from the right plaza. So we missed the tour. Bummer!

Ghost and (mainly) legends tour
Aug 2019 • Family
Very enjoyable tour however not really suited to children/ young teens who got bored of the tour quite quickly as it’s more legends stories than ghostly. The tour guide was excellent, would recommend for couples/adults.

Dear Client , Thank you for your feedback . I’m glad you’ve enjoyed our tour and our guide’s commentary . In regards to children and teenagers , I must say that it depends as not all teenagers or children get scared by ghost / legends stories . I’ve got myself a 12 yrs old daughter who attended to the tour with some of her school friends and they all liked it . Therefore I understand what you say , but it all depends on the children . Kind Regards Monica

Dear Client , Thank you for your feedback and I’m sorry you did not enjoy the tour . We’ve been operating this tour for quite a few years now and I must say that majority of people likes the stories featured . Of course I know that ghost tours in other countries , and especially in northern Europe, have different content mainly due to different traditions and many feature the visit to cemeteries and even underground passage-ways . In Venice these type of sites can not be featured and the stories featured are among the most interesting ones that can be found in this city . I understand some could be gruesome , but not more than the stories found in many ghost tours around the world . KInd Regards Monica
