What You Can Expect
Meet your guide in the Jewish Ghetto, which lies within the Venice’s northern Cannaregio neighborhood. Learn about the area’s history and culture as you wander its charming streets, passing by synagogues, kosher eateries, unique shops, an open-air market and a traditional mask-making workshop.
Stop in at three different bàcari to get a taste of the local dining scene. Your guide will select from among the neighborhood’s many authentic and reputable bars. Sip on a glass of local wine at each stop, served with bite-size cicchetti. These traditional Venetian appetizers may include savory bites like bruschetta, salted cod, meatballs or fried squash. Learn about local cuisine and the Veneto winemaking region as you soak up the authentic flavors and atmosphere.
Good, informative tour of the Jewish ghetto with an excellent guide. The food, included with the tour, was interesting
Excellent tour! Would never of toured the Jewish Ghetto otherwise. The Cicchetti and Wine was fabulous as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Franccesca was amazing showing us around the un-known parts of Venice. She is a Venetian, so she knows where to walk around. The bacari that we went to were really cool. That day was raining a lot but it didn't matter because hearing about history and looking at the beautiful buildings made the rainy day enjoyable. City Wonders is a great company, if you can book tours with this company go for it.
Lara was great. Perfecto. Sorry I rated Lara in the Murano tour- mistake the. Tour guide on that tour was difficult to understand. Lara was great.
This tour provides quick and essential tour of Venice.

Run and informative tour. Three couples were led on a tour of the Jewish Ghetto district. Along the way, we stopped for wine and appetizers in three different bar type places.
