What people are saying about Jewish Ghetto, Venice

Ms. Zorzetto led us through the Jewish ghetto. With entertaining anecdotes and good historical knowledge, she fully met our expectations. She is a very sympathetic woman who knows very well how to pass on the love you feel for your home to others. One advantage was that you, as a Venetian by birth, were able to give us many tips for going out and for restaurants. We would do a tour with her again anytime.
