Full description
Starting in Saint Bartolomeo Square, this 1.5-hour walking tour takes you to the hidden corners of Venice. A qualified guide will lead you through winding streets and eerie squares and tell you tales of mystery, murder and superstition.

Walk through the Castello district as you learn about Venetian doges and noblemen. Hear about unrequited love, the ghostly sounds outside the Malibran Theater and tales of tragic deaths.

Head to Saints Giovanni and Paolo Square, and then walk along the foreboding Fondamenta Nuova, across from a cemetery. Hear the story of the unburied child, said to be seen in the murky lagoon. The tour ends in the Cannaregio district.
