I had the great opportunity to explore the three Jewish Quarters of Venice, the Ghetto Vecchio, the Ghetto Nuovo and the Ghetto Nuovissimo with Lucia. Lucia is not only incredibly knowledgeable as an art historian, but her knowledge of Judaism and the Jewish history of Venice is truly profound. Also, it is a great reward to share some time with someone that loves the places where she lives in. I can understand the pride of Venetians now! For all of these reasons, I do think you should take a tour with Lucia during your stay in Venice.

Lucia showed us a wonderful side of Venice. We really enjoyed her personal anecdotes, as much as the high quality and historically accurate information about the city. She was absolutely lovely and gave us an experience we will remember for a long time.

Lucia spruzzo energia, passione, conoscenza e simpatia da tutti i pori. Visitare il ghetto ebraico con una guida del genere é un vero must. Di una gentilezza e di una signorilità d'altri tempi. Complimenti.
