How it Works
The synagogues are open to the public only as part of tours offered by the Jewish Museum of Venice. Therefore, our Venice Jewish discovery walk does NOT include entry to the Synagogues and Jewish museum. Guided tours of the Jewish museum and Synagogues are arranged and operated through the Jewish community itself. This Venice Jewish discovery walk ends in the Jewish Ghetto and those wishing to visit the Synagogues and Jewish museum can do so at the end of the private tour. During the booking process, you will be able to tell our Italian-based team when and what you would like to tour. You will also have the opportunity to tell us how we can customize the private tour for you and yours. With that, we will create the perfect travel experience for you.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
Sorry for the delay with the questionnaire, I was on holidays myself. I am happy to fill ‘excellent’ in all the lines. I searched Google and came across some discussion and read favorable reports about Nancy Aiello Tours for Russian speaking Rome visitors, now I can recommend it to others. I would like to add that I am very grateful for the excellent services and professional staff, as I work as a secretary, it is very important to me that your staff was always ready to answer my questions, provide information and make arrangements very quickly. I also appreciate your patience as sometimes clients’ wishes change soon and we have to rearrange things. Once again thank you all very much, I am more than convinced that Nancy Aiello Tours is the best guide service in Rome and Italy.
I just want to say thank you for helping make our trip to Rome so wonderful. Our tour guide, Laura, was top notch, and we could not have asked for a better guide. She was knowledgeable yet great with our small children. She was very patient and not consumed by the clock. My four year old is still asking when she will get to see Ms. Laura again.
We found your company through google, as the company recommended by friends did not respond to our inquiry. We are glad we found you and hope to use the same tour company on future trips and will certainly recommend the tour company to our friends. Thank you
