What You Can Expect

Venice Ghost Walking Tour

Hear strange tales about Venice's Bovolo Staircase on a ghost walking tour

After night falls on this atmospheric city, meet up with your guide near the famous Rialto Bridge. From there, journey through a labyrinth of narrow streets and deserted squares as your guide recounts tales of Venice’s haunted history. From the sacred to the profane, you’ll learn about the noble-blooded ghosts that wander the city’s grand palaces and the medieval child-killer Biasio, who was said to chop up little limbs and add them to his stews.

Visit the Gothic Fortuny Palace and beautiful Bovolo staircase — an architecturally impressive structure that conceals strange secrets in its spiraling stone archways. Learn about ancient cemeteries buried beneath the cobblestone streets and ponder the legends of fearsome sea creatures lurking in Venetian canals.

Step down to a secret passageway where forbidden lovers once met by torchlight (water levels permitting). Finally, let your imagination run wild in the shadowy Calle dei Assassini, once a popular haunt for hardened criminals and murderers and the site of many dark deeds. Your guide will lead you back to the Rialto Bridge after around 1.5 hours. From there, you are free to continue roaming the shadowy city on your own — if you dare!

Cristina was a lovely and very knowledgeable tour guide who made the hour and a half walk around the back streets of Venice enjoyable and fun! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a slightly unusual but interesting evening activity when in Venice!

The Venice Ghost Walking Tour was great. The tour guide was knowledgeable and was a fabulous story teller. The tour incorporated a mixture of stories with history about Venice and included exploration of some of the lesser known streets revealing some interesting secrets of the city.

Saw some very interesting parts of the city not seen on general tour and heard about some very interesting ghosts and other legends. Also heard about some other interesting places to visit such as the former insane assylums!!!

We took the Venice ghost tour on Monday, July 4th with Victoria. The tour was great, and she was funny and an amazing guide. She took us to areas around Venice that we would not normally have gone to, and told very interesting stories about hauntings through history. I would highly recommend this tour as a fun and interesting way to spend an evening in Venice.
