Venice Sightseeing Walking Tour with a Local Guide

325 reviews
Packed to the rafters with sights, Venice is a city where time passes fast. Don't waste a second getting lost amid bridges and crowds and instead explore with a guide to discover the highlights and history in minimal time. See the Rialto Bridge and gems, such as the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many Venetian doges were laid to rest. Choose from a 15-person small-group tour or a private option.

Another canal in Venezia. This zone is also very crowded in you can find many restaurants but I wouldn't recommend to eat in Venezia. Is etter to get out of the island. This zone is also very decadent and dirty.

This was the area where Jews were compelled to live by the government of the Venetian Republic, was instituted on March 29 of year 1516. When Napoleon Bonaparte occupied Venice he ended the ghetto 's separation from the city on 11 July 1797. The ghetto is in an area of the Cannaregio sestieri of Venice, divided into the New Ghetto and the Old Ghetto. In the ghetto, there are several Judaica shops, synagogue, yeshiva and the Info Point of the Jewish Community of Venice. There are also guided tours offered by the Jewish Community Museum.

A bit off the beaten track, some of this area is a bit more modern than typical Venice, with wider streets and rather cleaner. It's a more residential area and worth wandering through..

We were staying in Cannaregio so popped into the Ghetto area (this is where the modern word comes from) for a quick look around and stayed for several hours. There's not only a lot of the familiar history of segregation and persecution to see but there's also thriving shops and restaurants around as well. The tours and museums are to be recommended.

The Jewish Ghetto is more than just Jewish museums and history. It’s surrounded by amazing shops catering to local Venetians, so you won’t get ripped off eating the best food Venice has to offer. See Bank Rosso, visit the Holocaust memorial, and just soak up the atmosphere of what was essentially a segregated neighbourhood where Jews were barricaded at night. Venice couldn’t exile the population, as they engaged in the forbidden trade of money lending (think Shylock from Shakespeare) but they were only allowed to stay under the Venetian terms. Really sad.
