Dating back to the 16th-century, this is the oldest Jewish Ghetto in the world with its five synagogues, which are the oldest still existing.

The word ghetto comes from here; so much heritage in a few square blocks. Great kosher food. Highly recommend taking the museum's tour through several synagogues with background on the history and people. All ages!

After a tv programme that featured this area we wanted to visit this quieter area of Venice. Even in high season (July) it wasn't too busy. We were surprised that once you get away from St Marks Square the crowds seem to disappear. In the...More

Interesting to see how there are so many ghettos for Jews in Italy. You have to wonder how a people can be treated as such pariahs. Don't forget to see the Holocaust memorial there.

We enjoyed strolling through the Jewish ghetto. It's off the main commercial path so we enjoyed the peace and quiet it offered. An interesting history to read up on. Discovered a tasty Gelateria. Several Kosher restaurants and bakeries. Take a break in the neighborhood.

Why are people in debt said to have gone into the red? One theory is that the saying comes from Banco Rosso, the world's first pawn shop, located in the Jewish Ghetto in Venice. One of the roles of the Jewish community was to provide...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

I recomend a walk (half an hour from San Marco), but you can reach there with the vaporetto too. More interesting is from Piazzale Roma a walk through Canaregio which is very pitorescque and a little different from the rest... More
