We booked a private guide during our only free afternoon in Venice, missing St Mark's and the Doge's palace. Mistake! It is well worth a visit but you can do it on your own. The Museum (which we went to after our guide left) had...More

This is very definitely a different area in Venice. The buildings are like tenement blocks and close together. It is worth reflecting on how Jews were treated in Venice.

Walking around the Jewish Ghetto in Venice is a great way to imagine yourself back in time when Jews were isolated to this one area and locked up at night. The buildings are higher than any others in Venice due to the need to house...More

SO day three - decided no boats today but instead a walk around the main part of Venice. Great day - walked for ever, but saw the other, less touristy side of Venice. Some great bars, restaurants and very Bohemian environment - loved it !!

An important part of Venetian history and well worth a visit. Also worth a try is a visit to the jewish restaurant on the waterfront

The Jewish Ghetto areas are like no other in Venice. This is a culturally and historically significant place - the site of control and oppression of European Jews dating back to the 16th century, where the once overcrowded-living conditions are evident. To us as visitors,...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
