Underground Venice: Legends and Ghosts

  • English English
  • 2 hours

Get lost in the Venice suburbs on this tour through the crypts and subterranean tunnels hidden under The City of Canals. By torchlight, you will glimpse skulls, skeletons, and... just maybe, ghosts.


The tour begins at the Santa Lucia train station, just as the last rays of daylight are fading. Under cover of the Venetian night, we make our way into the suburbs of a city full of tortured souls chained to this world.

Passing through the sparsely lit streets the tour arrives at one of Venice's underground crypts. Accompanied by torchlight, the tour dives into the labyrinth of tunnels, left abandoned over centuries. You will pass next to macabre cadavers and contemplate the skeletons drawn on the walls, charged with guarding this place of death.

Once again above ground, we will make our way into one of the most sinister areas of Venice: Santa Croce. As we walk through this sestiere, we will discover the unsettling stories of the ghosts which fill the area.

The last stop on the tour is Dorsoduro, the highest district in Venice. Crossing bridges we will pass along the canals, and listen to the inexplicable happenings which this area has lived through, in the not so distant past...
