Immerse yourself in the mysteries and enchantments of Venice on this tour of the city's more seductive side. Hear about disreputable characters from centuries past, and uncover the secrets of this famously libertine city over a typical Venetian snack and a good glass of wine.

Meet up with your guide and set out on foot through Venice's labyrinthine alleys, losing yourself in the alluring lanes of the canal-traced floating city. Listen as your guide shares tales of love affairs, treacheries, and Renaissance-era debauchery that led to Venice's reputation for vice and excess.

Check out the unusually explicit decorations of the Camerlenghi Palace's provocative gate, cross the Camp San Giacometto to see the lively Rialto Market, and duck into the hidden alleyways of the Castelletto, the city's former red light district. Ponder the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Bianco Cappello, pass under a scandalously named bridge, and hear about the antics of the English poet Frederick Rolfe at the Campo San Polo.

Hear about the characters that shaped Venice's colourful past, from nobles and courtesans to the famed womanizer Casanova. As you chat about extravagant traditions in the city, head to the locally loved Cantina do Spade and cosy up to a table to share a chicchetto (appetiser) and fine glass of Italian wine with your guide.
