It was thrilling to visit the Ghetto, since the zenith of printing in the 16th century was on my radar. There is an archive at the Museo Ebraico. With letters of introduction, it is possible to see some of the first prints of Hebrew books...More

The guide was interesting and informative. Glad the synagogues were preserved. Good shopping in this district. Glad to see benches and tourists eating their own lunches on them. There are few places to eat outside restaurants. Thank you. Enjoyed our visit to the ghetto.

Really enjoyed exploring this area of Venice and visiting gam gams restaurant. It’s where the word ghetto comes from apparently. Really interesting

A small area, I expected something larger and more engaging, but the area does lead to some very cute little antique shops, and outside of the Ghetto, a wonderful canal area with charming restaurants.

This was the only disappointment during our two weeks through Italy. What could have been a interesting visit was spoilt by the attitude of the staff. Very unwelcoming. I have no objection to the airport type search but being pushed about is a bit much....More

This is one of the quieter areas of Venice, turning left from the train station rather than going straight to the Rialto area. It was peaceful, but full of history. We managed to tour the museum and the Synagogues to learn more..

This place lies in the heart of the Ghetto. Narrow, tall buildings line the quiet, serene square , which can be reached via three bridges. Besides the Museo Ebraico ( Jewish museum) there is bookshop, a library, a bakery and a kindergarten.

About ten minutes walk from the railway station Campo del Ghetto is integral to the history of Venice. Just walking through the area in Canareggio, parallel to the busy shopping streets, one gets a sense of the incredibly cramped conditions that marked life here in...More

So moving to walk through the streets and see the plaques ( with names, birthdates, arrest dates and date killed and where sent) on the sidewalk marking the houses where Jews were arrested and sent to German camps during WWII

The best way to see this part of Venice is to walk to it from the south. We walked north from Campo Santa Margherita in the Dorsoduro district, which takes in some of the most beautifully, quiet and non-touristy parts of Venice. If you're thinking...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
