really enjoyed visiting the museum here very insightful. a very peaceful place and very obviously an old ghetto.
This is an extremely quiet and peaceful part of the Cannaregio area of the city with no real monuments or sights to see. It is a wonderful open square surrounded by local residents and small cafes and retail outlets. Not that many really. It was surreal to think of what went on here in little over a generation ago. We... More
We stayed in a hotel close to here, everything so much cheaper than st marks but also so much more real !!! The locals are here , so if you fond them eating out here you know its gonna be good , it was :-)
It was not what we expected, coming upon the huge gates that once both protected and held the Jewish population at night. It was a quiet, historical, spiritual, and joyous place. You have to walk past the Gam Gam Kosher Restaurant to get there, and as we made our way into the heart of the Ghetto, we made note of... More

Perfect area to get lost!!..... More

There is nothing in particular that is there to see, but that is what makes this place so special. The historical significance in overwhelming, and this does not... More
We toured the ghetto and found it a very peaceful and quiet place to be. This is not an average tourist location, it is more about enjoying the cultural and historical significance.
We walked through the Ghetto and toured the Campo and weren't really all that enthralled. Perhaps if you are connected to the area by heritage you will take more away from it than we did, but it wasn't all that special to us and nothing of importance to see. I wouldn't come back.
The original ghetto does not embody what most people think of when they hear the word ghetto. It was very quiet and empty on a Sunday afternoon. It is neat to see this unique place remain intact so close to the main tourist street. After visiting we walked further away from the tourist area toward the water, which is also... More
