Private experience to fall in love with a charming and historical area of Venice. The Jewish Ghetto tour in Venice is my favorite tour, the right mix between the history that everyone should remember, hidden symbols, charming areas off the beaten paths! Explore Cannaregio, a lesser-known but magnificent corner with a private walking tour of the historical Jewish Ghetto of Venice, the first one of the world. I will show you the symbols of the ghettos explaining you the secrets of this area! Learn why and where the Serenissima forced to live Jewish residents under strict rules for centuries then how they faced the horrible period of the Holocaust. Furthermore I'll show you extra hidden gems and why not. Let's taste together a local traditional Jewish cake or a glass of the best wine (wine tasting is for 18 years old and above only)!

Thank you Lucia for such a great morning exploring the three Jewish Quarters of Venice, the Ghetto Vecchio, the Ghetto Nuovo and the Ghetto Nuovissimo.

I did not know what to expect but Lucia did a great job. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable as an art historian, but her knowledge of Judaism and the Jewish history of Venice is deeply rooted in her own personal heritage, which she shared with us and was, certainly, very touching.

Also, it is a great reward to share some time with someone that loves the places where she lives. I can understand the pride of Venetians now!

Finally, I appreciate Lucia sharing details such as “this is the place where I eat my favorite cicchetti”, or “I love to come here to have a drink and unwind”, because it gives you an insight to how Venetians live.

For all of these reasons, I do recommend to do tours with her.

Grazie, Lucia!
Perfect tour of the Jewish Ghetto of Venice!
