On our Private Cannaregio & Jewish Ghetto Walking Tours in Venice discover the lively and vibrant atmosphere of the most residential part of the city, where the few Venetians left in town still live!

Enjoy a pleasant stroll off-the-beaten track through the non-tourist district of Cannaregio. You'll quickly discover that literally the whole of Venice is one giant open-air museum as you encounter imposing Palaces, important churches, enchanting canals and bridges as you make your way through a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways to the Jewish Ghetto that lies in the heart of the Cannaregio district of Venice.

During these Private Venice Walking Tours through the Cannaregio district enjoy many detours to encounter homes of famous Venetians like Tintoretto and Titian, delightful anecdotes and stories of past residents of this picturesque area of Venice, along with sweeping views of the northern lagoon where we'll be able to discuss the vital role that the Lagoon played in the history of a city built from fear.

After a fascinating walking tour through the Cannaregio district, we'll spend the second part of the tour exploring the famous Jewish Ghetto. A city within a city, and you'll learn how the Jewish community lived here over the centuries. And what role they played in the history of Venice.

Entrances to the Jewish museum and synagogues are not included, as they are strictly controlled by the Jewish community (can be visited after the tour). This tour finishes in the Jewish Ghetto, and those wishing to visit the Jewish Ghetto can do so at the end of our Private Venice Walking Tours of Cannaregio & Jewish Ghetto.

We were very pleased with our knowledgeable and animated tour guide Luigina, who lead us expertly through Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto. Unfortunately we had only 1 day in Venice and couldn't take advantage of more tours you had to offer.

We have just returned to the USA and can report that we had two excellent tours with Avventure Bellissime when we were in Venice. The first was a two hour ghetto tour which was very informative and given by a woman who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. We were very pleased with that tour.

We had a wonderful time in Venice as usual and the highlight was our walking tour of Cannaregio. I cannot speak highly enough of our guide. She was wonderful and I would have no hesitation about booking another tour with her. Thank you.
