Tour Description

Experience an authentic taste of Venice on this relaxed tour through the streets and canals of the city’s most historic and picturesque neighborhoods, the Jewish Ghetto and Cannaregio. With an expert local guide and an intimate group of up to 12 people, you’ll explore these unique areas and savor an authentic Venetian experience – cicchetti.

Enjoy a Cicchetti Party

Like Spanish tapas, cicchetti is all about meeting friends to enjoy a number of small local dishes with some wine. You’ll enjoy these delicacies in three local bars as we stroll through some of the liveliest and most charming areas of Venice.

Located away from Venice's hectic, big tourist attractions, the Jewish Ghetto is a favorite place among locals. You’ll appreciate being away from the crowds as you explore the Ghetto’s outdoor market and specialty stores with your guide.

Learn the History of The Italian Jewish Community

Along the way, your guide will describe the fascinating history of this unique neighborhood. There were times when the Jewish community used to be locked in at night and on religious holidays. During war-time, this neighborhood was a refuge for Jews, attracting so many that buildings grew up haphazardly to accommodate them. This colorful jumble of buildings rises along some of the prettiest and quietest canals in Venice.

Sample the Best in Dining

You’ll visit three bars, sampling a glass of delicious regional wine and a selection of local cicchetti at each. Take advantage of this opportunity to discuss local ingredients and cuisine with your knowledgeable guide and your group. Venetians claim that their food is the best in Italy, but you'll be able to judge for yourself!

The charming bars you’ll visit are typical of Venice. See stone walls hung with shelves of gleaming wine bottles and locals chatting animatedly. Here, off the beaten path, Venice is a lot more relaxed and informal. Get a taste of how the locals live as you visit their local bar for drink, a bite, and some conversation.
