Cannaregio and the Jewish Ghetto

Starting from EUR €19 per person

Duration: 2 hours
Commences: Venice, Veneto

Introduction:

Highlights include: Jewish Ghetto, masterpieces by Tintoretto, church of Madonna dell'Orto, and beautiful views of northern lagoon and cemetry island.

Discover the lively and vibrant atmosphere of the most residential part of the city, where the few Venetians left in town still live! Visit the fascinating church of Madonna dell'Orto where you'll learn about its famous legend and admire works by Tintoretto. You'll also see Tintoretto's delightful home. Enjoy sweeping views of the Venetian lagoon while hearing morbid tales of San Michele, the cemetery island of Venice. And understand what a vital role the lagoon played in a city built from fear.

In the second part of the tour, visit the first Jewish ghetto in history, a city within a city, and learn how the Jewish community lived here over the centuries. 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 is seasonal and only operates from April through to October
