When night falls across Venice, uncover a shadowy world of restless spirits and Old World legends on this 2-hour ghost tour of the historic Cannaregio district. Discover sinister tales that haunt the city’s former Jewish ghetto as you stroll through hidden backstreets and lamplit squares, listening to your guide’s retelling along with the gently lapping water of darkened canals.
  • 2-hour ghost tour of Venice's Cannaregio district
  • Explore dark history in the city's former Jewish ghetto
  • Hear ghost stories and other sinister tales
  • Escape tourist traps and uncover hidden quarters of Venice
  • Great way to safely explore the city's maze-like streets at night
When the mysterious hour of dusk rolls around, meet your guide in front of the church at San Germania Square, located in Venice’s Cannaregio district. Bordered by the Grand Canal on the north, this area was once the site of the city’s Jewish ghetto, and its historic streets are steeped in centuries of legends.

Follow your English-speaking guide on a walking route that leads through a maze of hidden backstreets and quiet canals. See a side of Venice that only emerges at night as you listen to tales of the curious and macabre, including stories of ghosts sightings and other paranormal activity.

Escape the crowds and discover the dark side of ‘the floating city,’ where history and intrigue lurks in every empty piazza and narrow alleyway. The 2-hour tour concludes at Santi Apostoli Square around 10pm.

Was pretty good. Lots and lots of walking. Our guide was an older lady. She was a bit hard to understand and the stories were kind of dumb. LOL. Not scary at all. Lots of great info about Venice so was interesting but a lot of walking for weird stories that hard to follow.

Excellent tour. Our guide I'm sorry that I don't remember her name was knowledgeable and entertaining. Definitely worth it.

This tour was not really a 'Ghost' tour, but was an interesting way to see the other parts of Venice away from the tourist areas.

This tour provided a really nice overview of the Cannaregio District at a beautiful time of day. While there were a couple of little tales of the supernatural, it is pretty difficult for me to classify this as a ghost tour. Take the tour to explore and learn about a less visited section of Venice, not to be thrilled by ghosts and mysterious legends..

I wouldn't go so far as to say there was anything scary but our guide told many interesting stories and how the root of certain phrases began in the ghetto and became part of our every day language today including the meaning of the word ghetto. As with all the walking tours in Venice - be prepared to WALK!! Lots ot bridges to climb up over and down. I have a hip problem so was a little pokey, but our guide was terrifically patient with me being slow. She was also more than willing to answer questions not only about the tour itself but about Venice as well. All in all a wonderful experience and one I would easily reccomment.

This was a good tour worth its price. I would drop the word ghosts from the tour as there were not really any ghost stories, but it was still great. We wandered around several areas of Venice that we would never of went without our guide. All in all this was a very reasonably priced tour that will show you some hidden nooks and crannies of the Cannaregio district at night, which is really neat. Great little tour before a late dinner.
