All the Highlights of the Haunted Venice Tour
Our Venice Ghost Walking Small Group Tour feature a delightful sightseeing route through Hidden and Haunted Venice that provides the perfect stage upon which your guide will introduce you to Ghost Stories and Legends from Venice's Past & Present. Stroll through narrow passageways, cross sleepy canals and abandoned piazzas (campi) to discover that Venice by night is a city of romance and mystery.

Wander along the picturesque Riva del Carbon, where the gentle lapping of the canal against ancient stone whispers tales of the city's history and mistery. Traverse the narrow alleys and secluded courtyards of Corte Sant’Andrea, immersing yourself in the authentic Venetian ambiance. Discover the charming Campo San Beneto, home to the majestic Palazzo Fortuny, its elegant facade a testament to Venetian grandeur. Follow the winding Rio Terà dei Assassini, where secrets of the past linger in the shadows. Ascend the majestic Scala Contarini del Bovolo, marveling at its intricate spiral staircase that offers panoramic views of the city. Conclude your journey at the exquisite Casino Venier dei Nobili.

Immerse yourself in the captivating Legends and Anecdotes of our Venice Ghost Tour
During our Venice Ghost Walk you'll hear six intriguing ghost stories that will bring a chill to the night air. Throughout these 90-minute Venice Ghost Walking Tours your knowledgeable and entertaining guides will also entertain you with ghost stories and legends about Venice and the Venetians themselves.

Recoil at gruesome facts about Biasio, the child-killing butcher of Venice; see from outside the beautiful and reputedly haunted Bovolo, and learn many more haunted stories and legends about Venice.

Spectral Secrets and Architectural Marvels: Unveiling Venice's Hidden Treasures in our Ghost Tour of Venice
Mind your step, as you follow your guide on our Ghost Walking Tour of Venice as you don't want to wake the dead! We'll cross several ancient cemeteries hidden beneath the streets and campi of the modern-day city of Venice.

And as you navigate the labyrinth of hidden and haunted Venice you'll see numerous architectural gems lost in the backstreets of Venice that include the famous Bovolo staircase. Built by a wealthy Venetian, at a time when Venetians still travelled around the city on horse-back, this elaborate staircase enabled the nobleman to ride his horse up to his private apartments.

A Venice Ghost Walking Tour Through Hidden Passages and Dark Alleys
On our Guided Venice Ghost Walking Tours you'll also explore a secret passage-way, one of the few remaining ones left in the city. The lover of a noble Venetian lady used this passageway to gain access to her private apartments without the knowledge of her husband (access subject to water-levels).

With stories of rat-infested prison cells that flooded during high tide, and a stroll along the "Calle dei Assassini" you'll enjoy our Venice Ghost Walk with many surprises along the way. The Tour ends close to the Rialto Bridge.

Anna Marie was excellent. She was knowledgeable and made sure that the whole group was able to hear her and never lost anyone. The stories were fun and it was great to hear about the history of the city

It was a great way to explore, learn about the history, and some crazy stuff that actually happened and some just to add flare.
