Tour description

Welcome to the Mysterious Venice: Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto tour!

We take you to the unknown part of Venice, where tourists do not go and where the mystery, beauty and fascination that make this city fall in love is hidden.
We tour the fascinating neighborhood of Cannaregio and the Fondamenta de la Misericordia with its hundreds of authentic restaurants and bars by the water. We will visit the Church of the Jesuits, the Campo dei Mori, the Palace of the Camel with its legend, the Church of the Madonna del Orto.
Cannaregio is the most authentic neighborhood of the city and where the Venetians still live. We show you the life of the last Venetians who resist in their beloved city doing fascinating things until they reach the Jewish Ghetto: the Jewish Quarter where the word ghetto was invented and the oldest ghetto in the world.
We will see the koshcer restaurants, the Jewish bookstores and the kosher shops, with the possibility of visiting its five synagogues, the Hebrew Museum and the Banco Rosso, the oldest in the world.

At the end you can relax with an aperitif , a wine or a meal in the best place in Venice to do it: the Fondamenta de la Misericordia. We promise that this tour will be your most beautiful memory of Venice.
*IMPORTANT: Groups of more than 6 people are not allowed, EVEN IF THEY COME WITH DIFFERENT RESERVATIONS, the guide may refuse the admission of these groups to the tour. For groups of more than 6 we have private Tours for 150 that can be contracted directly with the guide.

    We are in front of the Church of the Gesuitas in the Plaza de los Gesuitas, very close to the Fondamente Nove vaporetto stop that leads to the islands. You will recognize me because I will carry a pink umbrella and my official tourist guide accreditation.
