Tour of the Jewish neighbourhood of Venice

A unique tour to live the Jewish neighborhood of Venice. Come with us and discover the treasures of the charming ghetto of Venice.

You’ll have the opportunity to taste the kosher specialties of Jewish- Venicians cuisine, one of the richest and the most varied , a true “fusion” cuisine Venice beyond the Ghetto, the Jewish Museum of Venice – CoopCulture and VivoExperience invite you to join the one and only tour that makes you fully enjoy the Jewish neighborhood of Venice.

Discover the history, the traditions and the gastronomy connected to the Jewish neighborhood and the Jewish culture. Together with specialized guides, you will have the chance to visit an area of Venice with an atmosphere of past times, rich in historical and symbolical value. The tour includes a kasher tasting: the Jewish-Venetian cuisine is perhaps one of the most varied, thanks to the cosmopolitan influences that have always characterized it.

The tour includes:

  • guided visit to three Synagogues, the spiritual and artistic heart of the Ghetto;
  • visit the Ghetto Vecchio, Novo and Novissimo to retrace its historical phases and find out what life was like in the Ghetto in the past;
  • a convivial moment with a “Welcome L’chaim”, the Jewish toast which means “To life!”
  • the “tastiest” part of the tour, as an option, with a tasting menu of specialties of the Jewish-Venetian cuisine, accompanied by wine. We will have strictly kasher food, certified by the rabbi of the Venice Jewish Community. We do suggest not to miss it!

We thank Marcella Brancaforte for the cover image.
