Full description
Starting in Campo San Bartolomeo, this 1.5-hour walking tour takes you to the hidden corners of Venice. A qualified guide will lead you through winding streets and eerie squares and tell you tales of mystery, murder and superstition. This tour covers areas of Venice after dark including hidden squares and darkened alleys, that otherwise you might not have the courage to visit. Walk through the Castello district as you learn about Venetian doges and noblemen. Hear about unrequited love, the ghostly sounds outside the Malibran Theater and tales of tragic deaths. Head to Campo San Giovanni and Paolo, and then walk along the foreboding Fondamenta Nuova, across from a cemetery. Hear the story of the unburied child, said to be seen in the murky lagoon. The tour ends in the Cannaregio district.

A guide dropped out more than at short notice, so from now on we were 8 participants. It shouldn't have been more to be able to understand everything well in the hustle and bustle of the evening. But Francesca found us, navigated the streets and entertained us fabulously with lots of insider tips for the rest of our stay. Unfortunately it was our last evening. We would have liked to have done more with her. Gladly again!

Very entertaining!

Our guide spoke very clear English and was a fantastic story teller! She really took you along the journey and the stories had many twists and turns. It was very nice that she took you to locations that directly related to the stories and told you some of the contextual history as well. One of the better ghost tours I’ve been on!

Interesting tour, as expected away from the normal sights. Nice evening event to get to know the other Venice. The tour guide was very easy to understand (English) and gave a great impression. The organization also worked well again. But if you are looking for a really scary atmosphere or a side-seeing tour, you should not take part here.
