The tour begins by exploring the Jewish Quarter in the Cannaregio district, a less frequented area that the Venetians refer to as being the most authentic. The Jewish Quarter was the first of its kind in the world and served as inspiration for Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. It is still an active center for the Jewish community, and the surrounding alleyways, bridges and canals have maintained their unique identity throughout the ages.
Then you'll experience three authentic Venetian wine bars, sought out by locals for their lively post-work atmosphere, perfect for meeting friends when the silver light of evening is at its best. Savor several of Venice’s bite-size versions of local delicacies called cicchetti – similar to tapas but unique to Venice. Enhance each tasting with a glass of local wine, accompanied by explanations and tips from your expert local guide.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
