Always interesting to see this very old area an glad it's still there. Can't say it is beautiful as the history speaks or itself yet the people still live there an call it their home. Good food places around too.

We had the obligatory Aperol spritzes, long lunch and the most relaxing time of our 5 days right here. Wish we'd stayed in this neighbourhood and, if we go back to Venice, we'll book accommodation here.

With several kosher restaurants (Chabad), a kosher hotel, a Jewish museum and stunningly beautiful still-functioning synagogues, the ghetto is definitely worth a visit by anyone interested in Jewish history. It still retains much of the old atmosphere, as almost all of Venice does.

The oldest ghetto in the World where Jews were Living being locked up in the Night and only allowed to deal in textiles and moneylending. The campo itself contains memorials to the almost 500 Jews from Venice who were killed by the Nazis.

The Original Ghetto is worth taking a tour of the area and the museum. We visited three synagogues and learnt about the life of the Jewish people when they colonised that part of Venice. Very interesting indeed. Then go to Gam Gam for a Kosher...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
