Step back in time to when darkened Venetian streets required the wealthy to follow behind a lantern-wielding servant known as a codega. Your guide takes on the role of a codega, leading you to the hidden and less-visited places in Venice while regaling you with hilarious historical anecdotes.

Make your way to Campo San Gallo to meet your actor-guide, who is part of the Pantakin theater company. As you walk through the maze of streets, alleyways, and canals, your guide tells stories that go back to when the city was a powerful sovereign state known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice. Learn everything you ever wanted to know about Casanova's romantic exploits, and then find out about the gondolier who became a priest and the elephant that found shelter in a church. As much a show as a tour, this experience offers entertainment for the whole family.

As you follow your codega, hear the tales of why an angel was installed as a palace guardian, why the bridge between 2 convents was called The Devil's Bridge, and where to find several of Venice's ghosts. Your tour ends as your expert guide helps you discover a few last secrets that are only known by locals.
