You will meet your personal English speaking guide at your hotel and begin to discover Venice reserved for those who love an unusual itinerary. This tour is designed for those who are keen to explore beyond the typical, well-known areas of Venice and the places that are characteristic of daily life for many Venetian families. There is a Venice that is practically unknown to tourists, truly traditional, characteristic in which daily life is lived. We propose this tour to those of our clients who want to relive the old and evocative customs of who travels “by way of the water”, renewing a love of those typical Venetian boats. With your guide you will wander through a number of typical back streets and along quiet canals to the “rioni” (neighborhoods) and the canals of Cannaregio, the district that hosts the very first Jewish Ghetto in Europe. Established in 1516 and operative for more than two and a half centuries, this is a fascinating historical area of Venice worth exploring. You will then wander to Dorsoduro and the area of the Zattere and the Accademie, considered the most exclusive areas of the city, housing rare examples of modern Venetian residential architecture. But the real specialty of this tour is the visit to a traditional home, where a “Signora Veneziana” (a typical Venetian lady) will prepare a homemade meal based on Venetian traditions while fascinating and entertaining you with stories and information that only a true Venetian could know. An enriching experience of culinary art and local knowledge. A unique experience, unrepeatable and exclusive that will satisfy your own tastes…visual as well as of the palate.
