What You Can Expect

Venice Ghost and Legends 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!

Tour was very good. The guide was very knowledgeable and you got to see parts of Venice you wouldn't have normally walking around.

Very easy to find our host at the centre of the Rialto Bridge.
Christina was enthusiastic and charming. Lots of great stories told.
I think my favourite part was when she took us into a completely dark courtyard through a small opening! A little eerie, but I loved it!

Very interesting!. A good mixture of ghostly tales and history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the stories come to life!! Would definitely recommend this tour as our guide took us to places, although not dangerous, would not have visited as two ladies on our own!!
