Overview Location: Venezia, Italy
The tour starts at 5pm right in the Old Ghetto (Gheto Vecio), the heart of the Jewish Ghetto where you can see the Rabbi's House and the historic synagogues. Your local guide will show you these important places and explain the history and architecture, so that you can really feel the vibrations from the past coming to life in front of you.

There will also be our first food stops – the others will follow in the Cannareggio district, the most popular in Venice, where locals live, eat and shop. You'll be part of the local population, walking through the narrow streets and over the canals, entering the traditional Bacari bars and tasting some mouthwatering Venetian recipes such as sarde in saor, spaghetti al nero, artichoke bottoms and much much more. We will treat you to only seasonal dishes, as Italians do, but we can guarantee that they'll all be delicious and traditional! All this accompanied by some glasses of local wine.

And no good dinner should end without a proper dessert – therefore we will first visit an old bakery, where you can taste traditional biscuits and cake and then go to a “gelateria” to get a hand-made super delicious and refreshing gelato. You can be sure that at the end of this tour you won't be hungry anymore, but happy and filled with food, wine, knowledge and interesting stories!
