Really a great tour! We were in 5 persons and it was perfect! Lucia is a very nice, kind and pleasant venetian girl who told us very interesting and curious information about Venezia. She loves her city and her work! Absolutely a suggested tour.

This was a brilliant experience made even better by our guide Lucia! She really brought Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto of Venice alive and she was happy to give further information and guidance about best places to visit by ourselves!

Oh... I just love Venice. I fell in love with the city and its people the minute I arrived. And what a wonderful experience this tour! Lucia was warm and friendly and just as passionate about history and food as me! She was easy to talk to and knowledgable about her unique city. This was the highlight of my trip to Venice!

If I could give Lucia 10 stars, I would. She created a beautiful tour. I was returning to Venice after having lived there years ago. It made me happy how special she made our day. She REALLY did a great job sharing information with us, I am so very pleased and happy to fully recommend Lucia and Free Walk in Venice in particular the Jewish Ghetto tour to anyone travelling to the lagoon! All my very best!

This was a wonderful tour, full of history and great stories. Lucia was a very good guide and knew so much about all of the places we visited and in particular the Jewish Ghetto. She did a great job sharing information with us, answering our questions, and explaining how and why Venice created the first Jewish Ghetto of the world. She showed us the spots to take lots of photos and shared extra info about food, art etc. Thank you! Recommended!
