About the tour

Interesting fact? Venice is home to the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world. But that's not the only oldest thing Venice has - it's also home to the oldest casino in the world! Why and how did ghettos and casinos start in Venice? These are only two mysteries we'll be exploring as we meander through the canals of the city. We may even discover a secret passage into a masons' church; hopefully, we won't be seen...

Meet your local guide


Andrea might be one of Venice's most entertaining tour guides. Why do we say that? Well you don't have to look far to see him jamming out on his guitar singing songs in the Venetian dialect. He likes to think of his tours like a small show so make sure to have your drinks and snacks ready for your time with Andrea! Born and raised in Venice he's as Venetian as you can get and he loves sharing unique stories of his city.

Andrea has been guiding since Dec 2012

A very enjoyable tour! Oh, I would be there in a whisper, but you did a very good job of explaining digitally some of the stories and beauty of this venerable old city. Sometimes a little challenged with the tech, but I think it was best when you walked slowly and didn't flick from selfie to viewer. Ciao, Andrea!

He was great. A very informative tour. I am so in love with the culture. I visited Italy in May 2018. I saw many cities, but I didn’t get to see Venice at that time. I hope to see other tours.
