What you'll do

Discover with me the history, little know facts, amazing insights, secrets and why not.. legends of the first one ghetto of the world in an interactive way! Part history, part challenges!

You'll learn how we pronunce the original name of the area and travelling back to the time you'll discover how and why the Serenissima Repubblic decide to create a segregation area for Jews.

Who was the Doge? Was the area all day close? How many sinagogues we had and we are still having in Venice? Why buildings are so different? I will help you to admire the "skyscrapers" of Venice and find out about the Stolpersteine (stumbling blocks) of the area, so I can explain how the Holocaust has left a deep mark on Venice.

Discover the history behind the pawn shop in Venice and listen to famous local stories. Do you know Shakespeare 's Merchand Venice? This is the place! And then.. Ghetto Novo, Vecchio, Novissimo: why?

I want to provide an educational experience to make you want to come to Venice as soon as possible!

This experience normally takes place in the magnificent Cannaregio sestiere but it is now brought to you live from my house using Zoom!

I have collected many images to help you to recognize details from the comfort of your sofa!

The focus is on showing you the real Jewish Ghetto of Venice and share with you what you can't find in a guide book! Let me be your virtual guide!

Lucia was amazing at recreating a highly unique experience indoors! We got to learn fascinating history, play some puzzles and Lucia’s energy was simply infectious. We can’t wait for borders to be lifted so we can see the Jewish ghettos in person!

Great experience with the charming and friendly Lucia. I loved this experience as I learnt so much about this part of Venice. Really can’t wait to visit Venice again. Lucia was very well informed and kept it fun.

Lucia was so knowledgable and friendly. It was a very enjoyable and interesting hour and a half. I wish I was actually there but this is the next best thing and I've learnt a lot too.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a personal tour experience of the Jewish Ghetto in Venice with Lucia. She is fun, informative, interactive and a great virtual tour guide. Even though I have been to Venice a number of times before, I learned so many things about this interesting area of Venice that I never knew. I highly recommend her as your guide for an hour and a half virtual historical journey.

I had wonderful experience with Lucia on Friday evening after the long working week. I definitely will try other "online" trips with her. Interesting and not really typical part of the history is told with the great mixture of sensitivity to the topic and Italian positive attitude and humor. I really loved it and recommend for all Venice lovers or future Venice lovers :)
