If you want to enjoy a lovely walk in Venice, far from the crowds and daytime heat, then you should join us on our Venice Private Cannaregio District and Jewish Ghetto tour. In just two hours, you'll visit the one in a kind Cannaregio district, often ignored by the one-time tourist. Home to the oldest Jewish community in Europe, the Cannaregio district is unqiue due to its architecture as well as its traditional shops, bakers, osterias, and much more.
Even though Venice will astonish you with its grand palaces, it is in the Venetian Ghetto that will leave you breathless, due to its peculiar architecture. In fact, is it here that you'll see the tallest buildings of Venice. You may even notice a few synagogues squeezed between houses and other buildings. This was the result of the need of confining a large number of Venetians of Jewish faith in one structure.
Listen to the stories and legends run deep in the alleys of Cannaregio, such as the dark and terrible story of Tintoretto and the witch. Learn the etimology of the word GHETTO, and get a deeper feel of how Venice developed throughout the centuries.
