  • A delightful stroll through the dimly-lit alleyways of the Hidden Venice
  • Venice Ghost Stories & Legends
  • Expert English speaking Venice tour guide
  • Maximum 25-participants per guide


Our Venice Ghost Walking Tours feature a delightful sightseeing route through the Hidden 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 sleeping canals and abandoned piazza's (campi) to discover that Venice by night is a city of romance and mystery.

During our Venice Ghost Walk you'll hear six intriguing ghost stories that will bring a chill to the nights 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 .

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 modern-day city of Venice.

And as you navigate the labyrinth of the Hidden Venice you'll see numerous architectural gems lost in the back-streets 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.

On our Venice Ghost Walking Tours you'll 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.

Really fun, our guide was excellent she the perfect personality. Somehow our booking date got mixed and they were still able to accommodate our group.

The tour was very informative, giving us all sorts of information about Venice and about the legends of murderers and ghosts.

Good introduction to Venice mysteries. Please do not expect a very thorough investigation as it's only a short tour. But it was still informative and interesting and I would recommend if you have some spare time one evening

Good stories, though not always as explored or related to the surrounding areas as they could have been

Christina was a tour guide and took us to several interesting locations around Venice at night. She had some good stories and history about Venice. Very enjoyable tour.

The tour was very worth it, the guide was also super nice!
My only regret is that we caught a storm and couldn't quite hear her last story! But that's on the weather :P
In any case, for me, it would be worth to have even more historical details discussed. I absolutely loved that.

Christina did a good job recounting ghostly tales and tried to involve us all; the tour seemed to improve as it went darkness began to fall (enhancing the 'spookiness' of the experience), the sites visited also became more intriguing.

The nighttime Ghost Walk Tour in Venice was great! I loved the stories and the history our guide shared with us - she also knew the city well and answered a lot of our questions. I recommend this tour!

Read the review above, OK?

Booked ghost tour for our first night in Venice with our teen son—good walk through streets and nice pace of storytelling by Guide Kristina, who was quite sophisticated. Sights and stories very entertaining and funny, nothing too scary. Venice is sooo old, we loved imagining how people lived there and this tour is colorful.

This is not tour, this is talkative lecture, u will not see anything but only hear from the tour guide, to be fair the tour guide was very polite and professional but I didn’t like the tour itself.
