What To Expect

An historical walk and immersion into the heart of the Jewish ghetto and Cannaregio to discover the secrets of the 1st Jewish Ghetto of the world. We will avoid the tourist trail exploring an authentic, lesser-known, but incredible, well-preserved area of Venice, full of charme, enjoying the secret corners of the three ghettos of Venice.
You will learn why the Serenissima Republic forced the Jewish community to live under strict rules and how they lived for centuries in Cannaregio. You will discover how changed the area in the centuries.
Did you know that the word "ghetto" comes from a local venetian word?
I will help you to recognize the hidden synagogues from outside and I will give you insights into the tragedy of the deportation and how the Holocaust left a deep mark on my beloved Venice. We will explore together the sestier of Cannaregio, with its beautiful streets and the venetian "skyscrapers", we will cross beautiful bridges draped in the locals' laundry, Italian style.
