Our expert guide will walk you through the lively Cannaregio neighborhood as it stands today and together you will explore the life and history of the first Jewish ghetto in the world. Declared in 1516, by the government of the Venetian Republic, as the only area where Jews could live, this vibrant community houses five synagogues, which are still central to Jewish life in the city. See the Campo del Ghetto and learn how the Jewish community was forbidden from building outside their district, resulting in unusually high buildings and then wander past gargoyles guarding the gorgeous Bridge of Spires as gondolas float quietly beneath you on the Cannaregio canal.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Venice’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Venice. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Venice of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Venice's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Venice time!
