Wine and Food Tour Near Venice's Jewish Quarter

Relax and reflect on your day, the Venetian way, by strolling through the Jewish quarter. On this tour, you will experience the local version of "happy hour" while discovering new wines and cicchetti appetizers in the Cannaregio neighborhood.

Your local guide will show you around this area's winding alleyways, bridges, and picturesque canals that inspired Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. The first Jewish Quarter of its kind, it is also the stomping grounds of many Venetians who finish their days relaxing in one of its many cafes and restaurants.

Throughout the tour, you will be free to move at your own pace. While travelling from bar to bar, you will also visit a traditional open air market, eclectic shops, and other aspects of Venice unknown to the average traveler. Aside from learning the habits of the locals, the evening promises smooth wines and delectable food in three traditional bàcari (wine bars), hidden away down Venice's enchanting side alleyways.

Wir hatten eine gute Zeit mit Emanuella, unserem Guide. Sehr kompetent und mit sehr viel Humor und Empathie hat sie eine international breit aufgestellte Gruppe durch das abendliche Cannaregio, bzw. Das jüdische Ghetto gefuehrt.

What a delightful and informative evening!
We did this on our last evening in Italy and it was delightful. Our tour guide, Emmanuelle, was fun, knowledgeable and friendly. She told us so much about Venice. Seeing some of the back alleys away from the crowds was s great way to get a taste of life in Venice. Highly recommend this tour.

The wine and food were very good, but the tour was inappropriate
This tour is excellent for the food and wine, which was the reason that we booked it as part of our honeymoon. The guide was very knowledgeable about both, and it is possible to have a lovely evening on this trip. We cannot recommend the tour, however. In the Jewish quarter, the guide first checked if we were Jewish, then, finding out that we were not, began to tell us the "history" of the quarter. The guide claimed that the Jewish people of Venice "chose" to live in that area, that it was given as a gift by the Doge, and that the people were treated as equal citizens. The guide either believed this (and so had not done any research) or was lying to make Venice look good. The whole of Europe has a duty to tell the history of Jewish suffering honestly, and while Jewish people were treated better in Venice than other places, they still suffered immensely. To see this history obscured for the sake of praising Venice was deeply disappointing. There was also an inappropriate joke.

Normal walking and normal restaurants
Nothing out of the common. Sea food in some places were not good (for me). Wine tasting was good tough.

Skip the tour just go to the bars and order ombra and cicheti yourself
I would have been happier going to the three bars and skipping the tour altogether and not paying 49 euro for this tour. I found much of the information to be lacking and the pace extremely slow. The wine and cicheti were good, but again, I could have done without the tour part.

Fun Evening Tour
We really enjoyed our guide Sabrina and we saw parts of Venice that we didn't know were there. The bars we stopped at were pretty good. I liked that we had a choice of red or white wine at each stop. I wish there was a better selection of snacks though.

Benedetta Cocheo a passionate for Venice and tourists!
Outstanding, interesting, fun and tasty! This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Benedetta was such an informative and interesting guide. The wine was outstanding and the food was good. Really enjoyed this tour! The group is kept small enough so that a steady pace is kept.

Tolle Guide = tolle Tour
Wir hatte Chiara als Guide und waren begeistert Venedig von einer anderen Seite kennen zulernen. Das Essen war sehr gut und reichlich und die Getränke waren mal etwas anderes (Prosecco, Weiß- und Rotwein) als der wohl bekannte Vino della casa.
