Do you enjoy a curious local legend? With over 150 magnificent and mysterious canals, Venice is filled with secrets and fascinating stories. Created by a creative local, Marc, this self-guided discovery walk takes you through the hidden backstreets of the Cannaregio district. Explore the world’s first ever Ghetto and learn about the works of Shakespeare as you solve fun location-specific riddles. Seeking answers around every corner, you will dive deep in the rich history of Venice to uncover pieces of the city’s identity that have been lost in the maze of time.

This playful walk across Venice’s Cannaregio sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Venice or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

If you want to extend this experience, you can start Marc’s Castello route right where this walk ends!
