VENICE JEWISH DISCOVERY WALK

An exclusive Venice Jewish tour to explore and celebrate the history and traditions of Jews in Venice. Experience a personalized journey of discovery of Venice Jewish sites. Jews played an important role in Venice cultural life, society and economy. Gain insights into this fascinating and deeply influential culture. Discover the local Jewish legacy. 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.

Please Note: Venice Jewish tour does not include entry to the Synagogues and the Jewish museum. 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.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Rome Cooking Class with Market Tour

    The cooking experience was a highlight of our time in Rome. It was great to spend some time away from all the usual tourist destinations, and meet some of the residents and get a better perspective on life in this big city.
    Alfredo and Nina were just super. They were friendly, very hospitable and we all had a lot of good laughs during the afternoon. Alfredo took us on a nice walk around the neighborhood as we sampled some of the local food. The market experience was most interesting. We were all very surprised to learn that the herbs are included in the food purchase for the asking! It was very different from the U.S. And of course all the food ingredients were so fresh. The meal that was planned was perfect, and Alfredo and Nina both patiently guided us through each step. All of us are experienced cooks, but I learned, as we all did, several new techniques that I know I will make a regular part of my cooking in the future.
    This is one activity I will definitely recommend to others who go to Rome. Others in our group were very curious to hear about this experience.

  • Italy Family Vacation Package

    I apologize for not yet contacting you regarding our tours.. We were in the UK for a time after Italy, however we have now been home in Canada for 2 weeks and I had planned to write a letter as soon as I got home.
    I will fill in your questionnaire as requested but wanted to tell you that your tours were absolutely excellent! The quality of guide, the small group, the attention and interest in the children really made them outstanding and as we only had a week in Rome, really allowed us to fit so much more interest and value into our time! I have already given your contact information to two families.
    I particularly wanted to express how fabulous Lucia and Lauren were as tour guides (Ancient Rome and Vatican respectively). They both were extremely enthusiastic about their subject – passionate would be the word, and they both presented the history in the form of story which really caught the children’s interest (and to be honest the adults too). THE two other families that were with us for Ancient Rome particularly asked me to send a note stating how fantastic Lucia was.
    As you know we made a last minute change to our Pompeii tour reducing the hours and adding a drive to Sorrento. All three families agreed that this combination of Pompeii and Sorrento really made the day – a great balance and contrast and we are so glad we had that opportunity. For future clients I would highly recommend that consultants recommend this combination, as I think it was better than either trip alone. The last minute flexibility was appreciated.
    Also, Alfredo and Nina had told the children that we would be e-mailed the recipes they made so that they could make them again. I have not received those so maybe you could check into that as the children want to get together and do that. Also we said we would send Alfredo and Nina some photos which I understood to send through you. I have not yet even downloaded our photos but wanted to check if this is appropriate and if so will send those on once I have them.
    Again I wanted to express our great satisfaction with our tours and to particularly comment on the excellence of Lucia and Laura. We will definitely pass your contact information to friends going to Rome or Florence!
    With many thanks,

    Lenora Moore
  • Private Venice Shore Excursion Venice Family Package

    Private Livorno Shore Excursion Florence Family Tour

    Private Rome Shore Excursion Rome Vatican Tour

    Thank you very much for your services.
    Vicenzo in Rome and Maria in Florence were really great!!! They deserve 5 stars for their services. Nadia in Venice was OK, but not as good as Vicenzo and Maria. I would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my friends and family.
    Thanks and best regards
