We will see the Rabbi’s house (from outside) and the historic sinagogues of Venice (from outside). We will taste traditional jewish-venetian dishes such as Sarde al Saor and Artichoke bottoms served with great wine. Between our food and wine stops we will take a relaxing and informative stroll on the romantic walkways called “fondamenta”.
After crossing the oldest bridge in Venice – yes, the oldest out of more than 400 bridges in the city!!! – we will eat in a selected restaurant where local gondoliers and residents like to eat! We will taste pasta you will hardly find elsewhere.
We will also visit an typical old bakery where you will be served zaeti, buranelli and other special biscuits. During our walk you will also enjoy the enchanting views of Venice by night with its churches, canals and alleyways lit up and sparkling like the great prosecco wine you will be drinking.
