Full description
Take a sit and enjoy a comfortable late afternoon 30 minute gondola, while relaxing and admiring the charm and beauty of Venice. The second part of the experience will take you on a guided tour to discover the traditional Venetian aperitif. You will taste the famous "cicchetti" and sip two wines at the local bacari. The bacari are characteristic little bars where locals use to stroll in the evening or while heading home from work, between an “ombra” (glass of wine) and a “cicchetto” (small snack, like a fried meatball or a stuffed slice of French bread). Then, the guide will take you along an unusual walk. We all know how a city can completely change during day and night. This is particularly true in Venice, where a new, charming city seems to reveal once the sun goes down and the crowds leave as well. This is the right opportunity to explore Venice as you would never expect to, discovering its beauty not only with the charm of the night, but also delving into some of the less beaten tracks. Interesting tales and stories about Venice's present and past will accompany your walk throughout the night.

Great overall experience. Excellent guide

June 20, 2022

The gondola ride was fine, the aperitifs were not part of the guided tour, but an independent tour before. It took place standing in two small, very hot alleys, so you were sweaty and sore in your feet even before the guided tour. The Ghost ride started out ok, but ended up with way too many repetitions
