If you want to know the authentic and less touristy side of Venice, you can't miss this tour of Rialto and the Jewish Quarter. This is a brilliant trip into the past of one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.
Rialto and Jewish Quarter Tour
At the selected time, we'll meet up next to Santa Lucia Station and begin our fantastic walking tour through some of the most beautiful and lesser-known corners of Venice.
We'll head into the old Jewish quarter via the Ponte delle Guglie (Bridge of the Needles) and start exploring the streets of the district from which the word 'ghetto' originated. During the walk, the guide will tell us all about its history and what life was like for the Jewish community in past times.
Our tour continues as we stroll down Strada Nova, the principal pedestrian high street in Venice. We'll reach Rialto, historically the commercial and financial center of the city. Besides enjoying fabulous views of the Rialto bridge, you can also enjoy a 'cicchetto' snack whilst soaking up the vibrant atmosphere.
After this stop, we'll continue walking until we reach the iconic Piazza San Marco square. Then, having taken some photos, at 6:45 pm we'll climb aboard a motorboat to enjoy a half-hour boat ride around Venice.
The tour then comes to an end back at the departure point, at approximately 7:15 pm.
End of the Tour
At the end of the tour in San Marco Square, the guide will ask you if you want to return to the starting point by boat or if you prefer to stay in the square to continue exploring Venice on your own. The boat transfer is included in the price of the tour if you choose to take advantage of this option.
If the whole group is in agreement, it's possible to enjoy a ferry-gondola ride across the Grand Canal. The price of this ride is € 2 (US$ 2.10) per person. Please note that this activity is not available during the winter months.
