tour guide venice and florence

We will be in Italy in July and want to hire a tour guide for one day in Venice and one day in Florence. It would be great if they knew something about the history of the Jewish communities of those cities. Any recommendations?

This Venetian tour guide does the Ghetto tour for ContextVenice; she must be good:

If you're particularly interested in Jewish heritage in Italy, consider a visit to Pitigliano, called "The Little Jerusalem".
