An exciting experience discovering the scariest tales of this millenary city. Far from usual tours, we'll discover the dark side of Venice: murders, disappearing, ghosts, devils and much more!

We'll start the walking tour in Campo San Giacometto, near Rialto market, the oldest part of Venice. We'll discover the curios sculpture of the Hunchback, where horrible corporal punished used to begin.

From there we'll cross the Rialto bridge, completed thanks to a pact with the devil. . . .

Next to the Rialto bridge, we'll get to the charming Campiello del Remer, famous for an incredible ghost story with a man whit his wife's head.

We'll go to see where Marco Polo, the famous merchant, and his sad Chinese princess lived and Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many Doges' ghost wander.

In Campo Santa Maria Formosa we'll see the belltower decorated to scare the Devil, and crossing the bridge of Anzolo we'll learn about the Devil that ran away from an hole in the wall and we'l admire the famous bridge of sights.
