Legends, Ghosts and Ghouls of Venice
The now tranquil streets of Venice where not always so. Have you ever walked down a street alone and felt eyes watching you? Maybe a shadowy figure moving in the distance? Join me as we visit the locations of those local spirits that you've felt and seen in the dark foggy nights. Learn the story behind each one and if they are friend or foe! Shatter your illusions of knights in shining armor that save the day, learn how enemies of the state were dealt with and how desire for power leads even the most noble down dark and twisted paths. Other things to note Please note that Venetian folk lore like many is from a time far before ours. To tell the stories at full effect how they are told among locals, details are very graphic. This tour includes “curse words” and I do not sugar coat the realities of our past world. Please bare this in mind when booking if you are accompanied by children. Please also understand this tour cannot be PG rated if accompanied by children in a public group I heavily advise that you book privately when bringing anyone who might need the graphic details to be removed. This experience is designed to stir your curiosity for the dark side of our collective story.

Gli ospite potranno decidere se raggiungere le Isole a bordo di un taxi privato oppure a bordo del vaporetto, trasporto pubblico locale. NB: il biglietto del vaporetto e/o la tariffa del taxi acqueo NON sono incluse nel prezzo. Nel caso gli ospiti decidono di raggiungere le Isole con il trasporto pubblico, è consigliato l'acquisto di un biglietto valido per 24 ore dell'ACTV. Se l'ospite decide di godere l'esperienza a bordo di un taxi acqueo privato, è pregato di avvertirmi in anticipo, in modo che io possa prenotare il servizio extra. Troverò i ospiti a Venezia, presso le Fondamente Nuove vicino alla fermata B dell'ACTV. A Murano oltre a fare una piacevole passeggiata nell'Isola, visiteremo una Fabbrica di vetro e vedremmo come se realizzano i famosi oggetti in vetro. A Burano faremmo altrettanto una passeggiata nell'Isola, visiteremo delle botteghe che vendono il merletto fabbricato artigianalmente lì e assaggeremo il delizioso buraneo (biscotto seco tipico di Burano). A Torcello vedremmo il luogo dove sono arrivati i primi romani che hanno dato origine alla Serenissima ed il famoso trono di Attila. Dopo di che, gli ospiti possono decidere se rimanere lì o se tornare a Venezia (alle Fondamente Nuove nello stesso luogo di partenza) assieme a me.

The definitive Bacaro Tour!
If you are looking for a bar tour in Venice, you will find many offers. Often, however, these experiences are for large groups, standardized, they usually take you to 3 bars, always the same.

We will walk through the city, even in popular, university and exclusive areas, you will see beautiful hidden landscapes, and you will enter in bacari outside the large tourist routes, sometimes too small for the usual large groups. The bacari are selected, each one has its own specialty, and it is you who first choose where and what to eat, because I will explain in detail the peculiarity of each place. We will be in the area of Piazzale Roma, near the first bacaro, where we will do the first tasting and together we will decide the rest of the program to be carried out. Prepare your stomach, but also your feet, because we will travel far and wide the city, only in this way you can see the difference between neighborhoods and try the best real bakaros in the city!
