  • Went on a guided tour. Guide spoke good English and gave an excellent overview of Jewish Venice, it's Ghetto and 3 of the 5 synagogues. Also answered our questions. Gift shop definitely worth visiting. Lastly, the Museum also features a Kosher dairy cafeteria with cookies, pastries, coffee and average cuisine. Two days in a row, we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing lunch.
  • Excellent guided synagogue tour. Well paced. All questions answered. In English. Children included. Highly recommend.
  • Very pleasant guided tour, even for our children. It was seemingly interesting for complete newcomers to the subjects at hand as well as those that are more or less familiar with Jewish Venice. We visited several of the synagogues.
  • Excellent synagogue tour do take it, learned loads, nicely set out museum.
  • I found really interesting the guided tour through the sinagogues.
