About the Tour

Welcome to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice! Join my tour if you want to learn more about all that this wonderful city has to offer. Being a native, I know all about the interesting stories that Venice and its famous streets, canals and buildings have to tell you.

  • the Jewish ghetto
  • the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world
  • Casino di Venezia, the oldest casino in the world.
