Padova has one of the oldest and most important Jewish communities in Italy, dating as far back as the 1200s. Our new Padova Jewish Heritage Walk is a fascinating introduction to the history and culture of this long-standing local community. Your walking tour with private guide will take you through the cobblestone streets of the Ghetto, where you will visit the Jewish museum, Italian rite synagogue and one of city’s Jewish cemeteries. It is possible to include a Jewish-Italian tasting lunch in a historic residence in the Ghetto, hosted by a member of the local Jewish community.
Your program will conclude with a visit to the Jewish cemetery on via Wiel, the oldest of such cemeteries in the city, dating back to the 16th century.
