A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide, Lucia, was charming and delightful. She led us on a wonderful historical/food tour of the Jewish Ghetto and surrounding neighborhood, and she was incredibly informative. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the Venetian Jewish community, as well as trying out different foods. All of the places Lucia took us to were fantastic in their own way, and we loved that she clearly has cultivated relationships with many restaurant owners. An excellent tour and guide!
