Venice and the Jewish community (free tour to Murano included)

Venice and the Jewish community (free tour to Murano included)

Cannaregio is a lovely quiet residential area of Venice, less crowded than the main tourist sights but full of interesting architecture and history. A pleasant stroll here will reveal that Venice has much more to offer than St Mark’s Square. You will visit the small beautiful church of Madonna Dell’Orto (the Tintoretto’s church), you will see the Campo dei Mori and the house of the Arab merchants, whose stories will surprise you, you will meet lots of local people still using the traditional dialect to talk to each other, old ladies out for groceries, children playing in the streets and students running to their lessons. Here was created by the Serenissima in 1516 the first Jewish ghetto in Europe. All the Jewish people in Venice were forced to leave their homes wherever in the city and move to this area, where they could practice very few activities. The visit to the synagogues can be done only with one of the guides of the ghetto following with an additional group tour.

Venice Christmas Day Tour

Venice Christmas Day Tour

Being in Italy during Christmas most certainly indicates to me that you are already a person who likes to make life interesting. During the holidays some families and couples like to get away from it all to spend time in a deeply cultural and historic City which invigorates are spirits and deepens the experience of our time together. Coming together in the centre of Venice seems like an already highest point to our Christmas Day Tour. But there is so much more. San Marco, Rialto, the Jewish quarter the bridge of Sorrows and so so much more. This journey through the heart of Venice sets the tone for any other tours you might experience during the holidays. With a literally overwhelming wealth of history and jaw dropping tales we use Christmas Day to reveal it all. My local guides are proper characters who know and love Venice so you and the kids won’t be left short of a few stories and unusual facts to tell.
