The Venetian Jewish Ghetto tour was one of the best tours during our 7 days stay in Venice. Our tour guide Alessandra had a deep, detailed knowledge of the history of Jewish settlement in Venice. She explained to us not only the time line and statistical facts about the jewish population, but also how jews were integrated into Venetian environment from the beginning of the Venice to the modern times. Alessandras knowledge about Ghetto and the Cannaregio district where the Ghetto is located was very impressive. She answered all our questions and we learned a lot of new facts about the Jewish life in Venice. We hope that this tour will continue to be available since we are going to send our friends and our kids to get the same experience as we got it with Alessandra. And the gelato tasting was a great treat and fun at the end, with the story about Francesco Procopio, the Italian inventor of sorbet.
This tour was incredibly interesting for the history content it has. Alessandra, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the jewish ghetto and explained everything in a nuanced and in depth fashion. Alessandra was patient with our questions and easy going and really fun too! The ice-cream tasting at the end was absolutely delicious!
This was the best tour we did on our Venetian trip. Our guide Alessandra was very knowledgeable, happy and friendly and it was so apparent how much she loved her job.
The tour was incredibly interesting and I would actually do it again when I next return to Venice. The gelato was amazing at the end
It was in fact a private tour, just for us. The guide, Alexandra, was great, she started to offer this shorter two hours tour recently, but the tour starts in winter almost by night, at 5:00 pm, and the Jewish Ghetto just started to awake after the Shabbat Saturday, and naturally the synagogues were closed for visitors. The whole tour, including the Cannaregio district was amazing, and we finished it with a Gelato Ice Cream tasting two big cups. We highly recommend it.
