The first Jewish district Campo del Ghetto created the name "Ghetto". It is interesting how such a lovely place share the same name with horrible Nazi's crime end a modern term for a bad neigburhood.

Walking through the Campo del Ghetto, then touring the museum that is onsite, is quite the experience. Learned that:

— populations, each with its own synagogue, ended up in the ghetto.
—This was one of the earliest places to segregate Jewish people.
—The English word "ghetto" came from the Jewish ghetto in Venice.

Although the gates that once enclosed the area are no longer there, standing in the courtyard, you can imagine what it would have been like.

The museum can be seen without a guide but to get the see the synagogues one needs to go on the Jewish tour. we got to see 3 out of 5 synagogues. They are very impressive.

We spent much of our time in Venice in the Venetian Ghetto, the world's oldest. You need to get a tour from the museum to fully experience and appreciate everything there is to about the Ghetto.

Our trip to the Jewish ghetto was very enlightening. I would not have found this area or appreciated its past just walking by. The museum itself was interesting but the tour made the Jewish plight come to light. The tour of the synagogues made the reality come to life. We really enjoyed. Beware it can be hot in the synagogues during warm days and you need to cover your shoulders.
