Take a tour offered through the Jewish Museum and learn about life in the Ghetto. Visit three of the five synagogues -- which are sinking like the city itself! Nice shopping and restaurants in the area. If you are Jewish, be warned that Chabad has...More

My water taxi driver insisted I get down and stroll in the area. There were many women with children who played in the open area. Was given to understand the word ghetto started from here. Nice and peaceful

A visit in this area, including a tour to the museum and synagogues, is very instructive. The complex history of Venice, a very cosmopolitan community also in the past, will be a little more understandable.

It's a bit of walk to the Ghetto and there's not a lot of shops or restaurants here but it is interesting and saddening to realize that this segregation of the Jews was common back in those times and not just in Venice. A sobering...More

I found the Ghetto area proper to feel too barren for me; maybe it was because there was a class trip going on while we were there and the students were yelling and that felt disrespectful, or, because, other than a few restaurants, and memorial...More

YOU MUST visit this place. There's nothing like it. You will learn about the Getto and its history and the German occupation in 1572 and so on... LOVE Gerald Thomas

After reading about the 500th anniversary in 2016, it was a must see place. Very few tourists make it this far, but it is worth the extra walking, with great little Kosher restaurants nearby!

It is a worthwhile place to visit - the museum has interesting artifacts and information that is hard to find elsewhere, and wandering the streets imagining what it must have been like - makes for a meaningful experience. It is in a quiet part of...More

Whilst most people visit Venice for its architecture and the canals the ghetto is well worth a visit to get a sense and feel for a place where the jewish community were forced to inhabit. The architecture itself isn't as good as elsewhere but the...More

I didn't even know Venice had a Jewish ghetto. It is a small area, but really quite perfect. You can have a tour, which is likely qite nice, but just walking through is also nice. My husband did note that this is one of the...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

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

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
