The Venice Jewish Ghetto Tour with Lucia

This is my favorite tour in Venice! See my reviews here 

The right mix between the history that everyone should remember, hidden symbols, charming areas off the beaten paths!

The Jewish Ghetto tour will show you a maze of streets and canals, you can find gondole and sandoli and very often painters sitting at their easels to capture the typical venetian light.  Everyone loves Venice, but once in Cannaregio you’ll fall for its personality, details and history.

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

During the Jewish Ghetto of Venice tour I will show you the symbols of the three ghettos.  I’ll explain you the secrets of this magnificent area!

Furthermore,  during this Venice tour of Cannaregio I’ll show you highlights and hidden gems of the northern part of Venice.

And why not… let’s taste together a local traditional Jewish cake,  a good glass of prosecco wine or the best gelato in Venice!


Highlights of my Jewish ghetto tour in Venice:

  • Discover the origin of the word “ghetto” and try to speak a little bit of Venitian
  • You will learn the amazing history of this place and its special buildings called the Venetian skyscrapers
  • How looked like this area during the Serenissima Republic ?
  • How long Venice forced Jews to live segregated in the ghettos?
  • Why Venice created the 1st Jewish Ghetto of the world?
  • Let’s discuss about the WW2 in Venice
  • Let’s speak about the great people used to live in the area
  • Learn about the particular culture, habits and  traditions
  • Learn about the Jewish food and special recipes

Visit to the sinagogues and the Jewish Museum are not included in the tour.

Of course I will explain you everything about the opportunity to join the sinagogues tour. The museum run it everyday (not during the Jewish holidays like the Shabbat).

The tour of Jewish Ghetto in Venice and the magnificent Cannaregio  is perfect for you if: you are looking for something more than the classic Venice tour attractions!
