Sites you’ll visit

  • Ponte di Rialto
  • Piazza San Marco
  • Grand Canal
  • This marble beauty known the world over was quite an architectural undertaking in its day. It has become a beloved Venetian landmark, worth every penny it cost to build. Its magnificent reflection glistens in the water below, making for a stunning photograph. We stop at Marco Polo’s home to learn of this son of Venice who regaled his people with tales of another world, the Far East. And, when in Venice, what better thing to do than people-watch in a local campo (square)? Marvel at spectacular structures and observe the locals in their daily routines.
  • Piazza San Marco represents the very heart of Venice, where to be amazed by different historical architectonical monuments like the Basilica, named after San Marco as well, or the Renaissance buildings along the long sides of the square. But there is something more: did you know that walking in Piazza San Marco actually means to be walking the only square of Venice? The square is always beautiful, also when it is flooded by the water of the lagoon: an unusual and impressive experience for locals and tourists.
  • The floating city of Venice is surprisingly not just one island. It is made up of 118 islands that are connected by over 400 bridges! The most characteristic aspects of the city are the beautiful canals that run through every corner of the city as if streets. The largest and most important of all is the Grand Canal that runs through Venice dividing it into two, lined with great palaces.

Tour description

A fascinating Venice by night tour discovering the abundant amount of secrets hidden within Venice, during which you will immerse yourself in the unreal and ancient atmosphere that pervades this beautiful city after dark. You will be lead through off the beaten track streets with your expert guide and be enlightened with ancient legends, ghost stories, unsolved enigmas, fascinating mysteries, and local hearsay about the history of the floating city. Venice is indeed known for being the most romantic of the romantic cities, but after dark, the romance factor suddenly dissolves to leave room to mystery and melancholy: Venice is a city with a long history behind it and, inevitably, that history contains a few skeletons and secrets. Wander through the infamous Ca Dario, known as “the house that kills” as it appears that nearly all those who have owned, lived or been associated with the building have come to a sticky end (murders, suicides, accidents or bankruptcy). Admire the sinister Poveglia Island, turned into an asylum to hide the mentally ill away from the city in 1922. You’ll then get to know the Casino degli Spiriti or ‘House of Souls’, an elegant building cursed by the ghost of, a painter who killed himself over his love for an engaged lady. The city’s darker side might leave you feeling a bit shaken, if you feel more comfortable in hiding away from the many ghosts you’ll meet during this tour, you are welcome to wear your own Venetian carnival mask!
