This is my favorite tour in Venice, the right mix between the history that everyone should remember, hidden symbols that you can't find on guide books, passion and charming areas off the beaten paths!
An unusual stroll to discover all the secrets of the first Jewish Ghetto of the world. Did you know that the word "ghetto" is coming from a local venetian word?
