We took an evening tour of the entire area - interesting that the first 'skyscrapers' were in the Ghetto in Venice!

Worth visiting to get a sense of history it is also very peaceful compared to the rest of the city. The Ghetto itself is quite small but leads to some lovely parts of the city to explore

It's very interesting place with many small galleries, where you can admire artists and also buy something. It is possible to visit the synagogue and also some small bars and coffee shops. Campo del Ghetto is must on my every visit of Venice.

This will bring up different feelings in people, especially if you are of Jewish decent. Unfortunately due to time restraints we couldn't stay as long as we would have liked, nor were many places open. It helps to read up about the history before actually...More

The Jews were basically penned up in the Ghetto at night in the beginning of their time in Venice. The city knew of their business skills and welcomed that but of course not being Catholic they were suspect. Same as in Rome earlier. So they...More

Well worth a visit, take the synagogue tour from the Jewish Museum. There are a number of kosher bakeries here that make great almond flavoured snacks.

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

Cannaregio
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
