Interesting part of the city

Really interesting to visit this part of the city and understand the history and culture in this area. Worth going on the guided tour of the Jewish museum and synagogues too.

Interesting history, but the area is not very nice or welcoming. May be for jewish people it can be more interesting, but we cannot recommend it. There are nicer places in Venice.

It is surprising that Venice, a city which according to some people is 'dying' , since the number of its inhabitants is shrinking and according to others is nothing more than an overpriced ghetto for tourists, still has a lively jewish district. There are some very good restaurants and lunch rooms here and the museum of jewish life is a... More

A very sad place taking into account the reason for its existence. However, the residents have made it such that it blends in with the rest of Venice insofar as its feel. You must take note of the acknowledgements to history (i.e. slaughter of 6 million Jews, etc). There are kosher restaurants and a very active Venetian Jewish population.

This area of Venice is very quiet and relatively tourist-free. You can get great kosher food here and walk around in relative tranquility compared to the rest of Venice

Been to Venice many, many times ... only recently discovered the Ghetto. To visit this place and understand the historical significance ... what a treat (and a humbling experience). Easy to find and well worth the visit!

This is the first ghetto I. The world and the history behind it underlines venetians tolerance of other. It is also humbling to be reminded of the I tolerance of others during the second world war.

We took the tour of the 5 synagogues in Venice which was great. There is so much history to know of interest to me becuse I am Jewish. The tour guide was lovely and we were inside the 2 museums and outside the other 3 in the square. There are nice restaurants there where we had a drink with fellow... More

Even if you are not Jewish, this is an very historic location to visit if you have time while visiting Venice. There is a small museum, and I would take the tour.

The history of the Jews in Venice is different than their Venetian compatriots and also different than the history of the co-religionists in other cities of the time. The site is different than the rest of the city-scape, for a reason. Still used by the community.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
