Step back in time as you visit Cannaregio the oldest Jewish Ghetto in Europe. Venice Jewish tour offers cultural insights and understanding of the history of the Ghetto and Jewish life, a must see for any Jews visitor and non-Jews alike.

The presence of Jewish people in Venice has very deep roots. Jews began to settle in the city in the 10th century. The world’s first Jewish ghetto was established here and has remained unchanged since its founding. Your personable guide brings the past back to life and you easily feel transported to the glittering sights and sounds of the past. This Venice Jewish tour delves into the establishment of the Ghetto and the origins of the Jewish community. Explore curious corners of the city that so many visitors do not get to see. A lovely stroll along charming narrow streets and canals takes you to the Cannaregio district. This historical area is filled with many sites that testify to its rich cultural past. Cannaregio is the focal point of Jewish life with two operating synagogues, a Jewish museum, traditional kosher restaurants and bakeries. Aside from its historic interest, this old quarter is also one of the less touristy neighborhoods in the city where a small Jewish community still lives. For a real insight into the Ghetto neighborhood your local guide highlights cultural aspects of the Jewish history and the daily life within the context of the city history. Contact us for pricing and availability.

Entrance to these religious sites is strictly managed by the Jewish community itself. This private walk ends in the Jewish Ghetto and those wishing to visit the Synagogues and Jewish museum can do so when the tour is over.

    We really enjoyed our Vatican tour with Lucia. She was an outstanding guide and kept it interesting for all of us.
    We would recommend Nancy Aiello tours to friends. I found it through a web search for good tours of Vatican for families.

  • Vatican and Colosseum Private Family Tours

    My children and I enjoyed our tours very much!
    Our overall experience was fantastic!
    The booking process was easy. The person I communicated with, Ann, was very professional and helpful. Both tours were great. Our guides for each tour (Cynthia for the Vatican, Laura for the Colosseum) were very knowledgeable and interesting. They kept my children engaged, and moved the tour along at a pace that worked well for us. My children said they’d rather learn about the world with private tour guides like the ladies we met in Rome, than by going back to their classrooms. I would you recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to families and friends. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino website. Thanks for providing such a wonderful service. Our trip to Rome and our understanding of the various sites would not have been the same without your excellent tour guides.
