Venice, Italy

28/12/18 0:00 - 01/01/19 0:00

The event began on the Friday with a short visit to the historic town of Padua,before an early Shabbat brought us together as one family. Participants after Shabbat partied the night away in nearby Mestre.  On Sunday, a full day trip explored the glassmaking factory of Murano and scenic nearby Burano island before a full day tour of Venice including the traditional Jewish ghetto and famous narrow alleys between St Marks Square and the Realto Bridge. We brought in the New Year on the Monday evening with our annual Black Tie Ball, and then finished on the Monday with a visit to the nearby city of romanticism of Verona, home of the famous Romeo and Juliet story.
