The Dark Heart of Venice

Highlights / General details

Legend of ghosts, murderous intrigues, secret routes through dimly lit alleyways, the ill-fated Fenice Theatre. Imagine a dark silent Venice with no lighting, eerie and spooky. Learn about the public executions in St. Marks Square, the inhumane mental asylums situated on the lagoon islands. Anecdotes of the courtesans, casinos and brothels and of course Casanova and 'the last kissing spot'. There's a story of the mysterious footprints, headless body and the head seen floating in a canal, the assassins alleyway and the murdered women dressed in white!
