During the tour in the old city , we will discover the traditional landmarks of historical Kochi, which includes ancient Chinese fishing nets, the historical European settlements like Vasco de gama church and dutch cemetry and later towards the Dutch palace, a museum under Archeology and spend time walking through the historical Jew town towards the Jewish synagogue.
