2 hours – Venice with kids: Jewish ghetto game tour for families

This game tour right mix between the history that everyone should remember, hidden symbols and  charming areas off the beaten paths!

This scavenger hunt is perfect for kids but will  engage the whole family!

I will  provide a very good introduction to the history of the oldest Jewish ghetto of the world and as well as a nice overview of a very residential neighbourhood.

We will start in Campo san  Geremia and then we have a nice walk through green areas, the backstreets, off the beaten paths,reaching the  three Jewish Ghettos in the lovely districts of Cannaregio to get in touch with the real Venice and its important history linked to the Jewish community.

The Jewish Ghetto tour will be an outside tour, I will show you a maze of streets and canals. Everyone loves Venice, but once in Cannaregio you’ll fall for its personality, details and history.

Kids will learn why and where the Serenissima forced to live Jewish residents under strict rules for centuries.

And why not… if you want to add something more, let’s taste together a local traditional Jewish cookie,  or you of the best gelato in Venice!
