Description

Let a local help you to discover secrets , history and gems of this charming area of Venice: Cannaregio one of the biggest “sestieri” of Venice.

I am sure you will fall in love with Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto area (the first Jewish Ghetto of the world and I will teach you the right local pronunciation) with me, a local art historian and first of all a  great lover of the area! This tour is a piece of heart for me, I will explain you why!

Together we will enjoy an amazing point of view of the lagoon and we will pass through the historical and charming Jewish Ghetto.

I will show you an hidden park (yes, Venice can be so green), the “fondamenta” famous for our “bacari” winebar, the Merchant of Venice area, places famous for incredible legends, a unique bridge, a special church, the sites where the painters Tintoretto and Tiziano used to live and the Venetian pantheon! Venice is such a special city and even the names of the streets are so unique!

So. . we will see the authentic Venetian daily life speaking about the past and the present and meeting locals.

This will be a relaxing walk in this charming and peaceful side of the floating city. Together we will visit hidden corners and  we will talk about history, architecture  and art as Venetians do.
