You'll encounter imposing palaces, important churches, enchanting canals and bridges as you make your way through a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.
The walking tour through the Cannaregio district includes many detours to see the homes of famous Venetians such as the painters Tintoretto and Titian. You'll hear delightful anecdotes and stories about past residents of this picturesque area of Venice, and enjoy sweeping views of the northern lagoon. Your guide will discuss the vital role that the Venice lagoon played in the history of this city built from fear.
After your fascinating walking tour through the Cannaregio district, you'll spend the second part of the tour exploring the famous Jewish Ghetto, a city within a city. You'll learn how the Jewish community lived here over the centuries, and the role they played in the history of Venice.
Entrances to the Jewish museum and synagogues are not included, as they are strictly controlled by the Jewish community (they can be visited after the tour).
