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?
