An evening walk to discover unusual & lesser known Venice through legends, tales and secrets.


Experience that magical moment when a Venetian twilight morphs into darkness.
Venice seen through its legends, tales, superstitions and myths and how they arose from what historically happened and the particular social context of the times.
This bespoke itinerary varies to avoid the mass tourist trail. Immerse yourself in an intimate and peaceful trip fromtwilight to darkness while taking in areas of St Mark's, Castello and San Polo districts.

You can request this as a DAY tour so we can enter a variety of institutions which are not open at night and can talk about the funeral rituals, beliefs about Death, and how the afterlife is portrayed in Art & Culture in Venice.

* I advise that you wear comfy shoes that you are happy walking in.
Please let me know if you have limited mobility as I can adapt the tour to suit your needs.

from March 31st until MAY 1 2018/ from 10h Am to 10h PM
it is possible to include in the tour the visit to the temporary exhibition:
"Crime & Justice: Venice Secrets"
