As we walk, drink and eat we will tell you some anecdotes and stories about Venice.
VeneziaEventi tour starts from the Jewish Ghetto, a secluded and appealing location, far away from the major tourist routes. This is actually the oldest and best preserved Jewish neighborhood in the world, one of Venice's many landmarks. We will then continue along the streets of the Cannaregio zone, one of the most residential areas where you can find bars and pubs frequented by locals. Here we will see the sculpture of Mister Rioba, an old merchant by origin from Morea, whose history was the base for many Venetian tales handed down via oral tradition. We will also see the house which is the birthplace of the famous Venetian painter Tintoretto and we will end by crossing a bridge without handles called Chiodo, it's the last of its kind although it was the standard in ancient times.This tour gives you the possibility to discover the best local cichèti (many small portions of different food) and ombre (vines) as well as to experience Venice the way Venetians do, which many foreigners find unusual.
