Full description
Discover an entirely different Venice as you make your way through a labyrinth of narrow alleyways, where shadows linger and footsteps echo. Imagine a dark silent Venice with no lighting, eerie and spooky. Learn about the public executions in St. Marks Square, the inhumane mental asylums situated on the lagoon islands. Anecdotes of the courtesans, casinos and brothels and of course Casanova and 'the last kissing spot.' There's a story of the mysterious footprints, headless body and the head seen floating in a canal, the assassin alleyway and the murdered women dressed in white. Secret courtyards and architectural gems hidden in the silent alleys, such as the impressive spiral staircase. Finally, the story of the ill-fated Theatre, La Fenice and mystery of the last fire.

We are a very young couple who are interested in history, but have already seen enough of the conventional landmarks. Our guide was a very hard-working and informative history professor, who really peppered each of the stories with interesting details and almost brought the past to life through his stories. In addition, you pass parts of Venice that you would otherwise have overlooked. I can recommend the tour for everyone who wants a little twist on normal sightseeing. :)

Sergio was a wonderful guide filled with anecdotes and knowledge about the many mysteries in Venice. He also shared a few great recommendations for local restaurants. Can highly recommend! Emma and Marc

The meeting point is not 100% clear. House number does not match museo correct. That was confusing. Otherwise a great evening with our very nice guide. He speaks perfect German and is very competent. We liked it very much and learned a lot.
