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.

We decided to walk the opposite way to all the tourists. We ended up walking through all of the ghetto. Nice and quiet and found a nice small quaint cafe for coffee. Several times we reached dead ends and had to back track but all...More

makes history come alive and is a nice secluded spot away from the usual tourists' path. And the nice central place actually has banks to sit down and rest your feet, differently from the more touristy places...

Walk around the whole area known as the Jewish Ghetto. It is a surreal experience. Signs are everywhere and it is worth sp[eaking to some of the locals who were very willing to talk about this history. This might be one of the few times...More

Fascinating to walk through, but get the history on your own first. I wasn't able to join a tour, place was mostly deserted when I was there in October.

Somewhat disappointing as it was written up as experience the real old style, old neighborhood Venice, which we really didn't feel at all. Wall memorials and plaques were interesting. We did not visit the Synagogue as we didn't have time and that might have changed...More

So much interesting social history in this area. Venetian influence in synagogues visited, but a truly individual character to all. Museum - interesting. Guided tour of synagogues (3) is only way to visit but gives good background information in English.

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

Just visiting the inner campo and view the free and public monuments- about half an hour - one hour (when museum and Synagogues are closed). Adding the museum and synagogues will add an additional 2 hours. Add time to... More
