Venture off the typical tourist path and explore a lesser-known area of Venice while learning about the history of the city’s Jewish residents. This private tour begins in the Cannaregio neighborhood, where you’ll meet your local guide. Embark on a 3-hour walking tour of the historic Jewish Ghetto, which was established in 1516 and housed up to 4,000 people at its peak in the 17th century.
Although Jewish residents in Venice now live throughout the city, this area remains an important spiritual and cultural hub for the local Jewish community. You’ll pass by several centuries-old synagogues, kosher restaurants and Jewish shops. Stop in at a traditional Jewish bakery to sample pane azzimo, a type of delicate flatbread, and other traditional delicacies (own expense). 
Pay tribute at a pair of Holocaust memorials by sculptor Arbit Blatas, and see the seven-story buildings that surround the area’s main square — unusually high for Venice and built vertically to save space in the crowded ghetto. With the full attention of your knowledgeable guide, feel free to ask any questions and request a customized itinerary to suit your interests. At the end of your 3-hour walking tour, say farewell to your guide back at the Cannaregio departure point.
