Description

As the sun sets, Venice loses its usual bustling atmosphere and takes on a much darker, more mysterious tone. With the streets deserted and the buildings casting shadows on the alleys, explore lesser-known pockets of the city as your guide regales you with tales of its gritty past.

As you walk through the dusk, your knowledgeable guide tells stories of footprints on stones, headless bodies and the mysterious ghost of a murdered woman dressed all in white. In addition to hearing these ethereal stories, you learn about the public executions that took place in St. Mark’s Square, the terrifying asylum at San Servolo, and the unsettling “Murderers Alley.”

Away from the usual tourist trail, this hidden side of Venice reveals incredible views of grand palaces, spiral staircases, and empty squares.

The tour was a nice way to find out about some of the legends and ghosts in Venice. Graziella was a lovely guide showing us the locations and her keen storytelling keeping us interested in the subjects. For us by the time the tour finished it had been a long day for us and we were just keen to get to our hotel to rest.

The tour guide was very informative and spoke perfect English. Be prepared to put your walking shoes on and take plenty of water as there was a bit of a walk. Would of been nice to have a ten minute break to grab a drink or gelato.
