The picturesque streets and canals of Venice harbor a dark history, filled with tales of ghosts, grisly murders, and haunted houses. On this tour, dare to explore Venice after nightfall, stroll the moonlit Calle dei Assassini, and see landmarks such as the Bovolo staircase and Rialto Bridge, as your guide brings the city’s myths and legends to life.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at Campo San Bartolomeo 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 Gothic façade of the Fortuny Palace and 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 by the Rialto Bridge in central Venice.

We had a great tour with Christina. Very spooky and well presented. I think it was her personal experience which really got to us, but several of us experienced a presence on this tour. Very passionate and well researched.. Great tour guide.

Our guide was very sweet and I don't want to give her a poor rating because she tried to make it interesting, but this tour was not that interesting. It was actually boring.
