Know More about this tour

Meet up with your guide and small group in Venice'sSestiere of Cannaregio, home of the Jewish ghetto, the first one for Jews in Europe. Its here where the word ghetto first originated.This remote area was where Venices Jewish population were forced to live from the 16th century until the late 18th century when Napoleon lifted the restrictions on their movements. Aside from its historic interest, Il Ghetto is also one of theless touristyneighborhoods in Venice (though it is becoming somewhat of a nightspot) and is a pleasant place for a stroll.

Chance upon the typical high buildings and low ceilings of the ghetto; walk along the streets and squares of the old and new ghetto and listen to interesting facts from your guide to enhance your experience.

Stop over the faades of the synagogues, easily recognizable from their windows and still houses of pray for the Jews community.

Walk along Ormesini fondamenta street, where you can still enjoy a real slice of genuine Venetian life. It is not rare finding out those typical clotheslines hanging over the side canal. Pass by the NeoclassicalMary Magdalene Church rebuilding over top of the medieval church.

Cross the Ponte Chiodo ( or the Nail Bridge) one of the few bridges in Venice with no handrails and learn about the Scuola grande della Misericordia ("Old School ofMercy") a former charity building inVenice dominating the north side of Venice. A unique building of its kind, that after a restoration once againserves the city, reviving its ancient vocation of hospitality, with a modern approach ( external visit ).

Last stop, in Campo SantApostoli, is a gourmet Italian gelateria, specialized in handmade vast variety of frozen treats, produced with local and seasonal ingredients.Why settle for one ice cream flavor when you can try 6?

    This was an excellent combination of Jewish history tour and food tasting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was a pleasure. This was a terrific tour and we are fortunate to have taken it with the guide we had. Bravo!

    This was a fantastic tour without having to walk far. The information shared was fascinating. The tour included some yummy sandwiches and wine at the end.

    Really good tour. Covered some of the basics of Venice but really expanded on the history of the Jewish quarter and the peoples. The spritz and chicetti was a great stop and something new to try, but don’t call it tapas.

    We loved the tour! Our guide was fantastic and so was the food. That being said, the booking company Viator was horrible to deal with.

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. I would recommend this tour for the experience and the gelato!

    We had this tour booked for weeks. Then the morning we were departing for our trip they contacted us and told us they could not accommodate us. Very frustrating! Our travel agent was able to book us with the Cicchetti & Wine Tour of Venice's Jewish Ghetto and had a fabulous time. Cecelia was a wonderful tour guide.

    The tour guide started by explaining that the Jews were put in the ghetto at their request and for their protection. Because they were “so powerful”, their request was granted. They got locked up at dusk every night.

    The leader was not very informative.

    She also showed a photo of a man with a white beard and large nose as an example of someone who had lived in the ghetto. The tour did not include a visit inside any of the 3 synagogues or the Jewish Museum.
    Skip the tour and go to the Jeeish Museum.

    Alicia was very knowledgable and keen to keep our interest. We loved it. Gelato was a real treat, more than just a 'taste'
