In Venice, from the middle of the fifteenth century, the nobles and the wealthy were preceded by a servant called "Codega" equipped with a lantern to lighten their path in the darkness of night, delighting them with anecdotes and stories.

Today, an experienced company of Pantakin actors from Venice will be happy to play your personal host who will guide you through the maze of mystery that belongs to the lagoon.

Perfect first evening in Venice

I had the most wonderful historical theatrical walking tour from Francesca! She was brilliant, so many stories come to life from Venice’s history. Very memorable and a perfect activity for your first evening in the beautiful floating city. I saw so much of Venice I don’t think I would have without her. She really takes you off the beaten path, to experience authentic historical Venice. The stories were excellent, Francesca was amazing the city is beautiful. This is a must activity for your visit!
