Gives you an insight as to how people of a certain faith were treated, they had to be locked up at night and not allowed to wonder. There is a museum, shops depicted the history.

Centuries of Jewish Venetian history are tucked away in this relatively small area. The three synagogues visited on the mandatory tour are all spectacular and the museum, not there when I last visited about 30 years ago, does an excellent job of describing Jewish life...More

It is the history of the square that makes it interesting rather than the appearance. You need to read about the ghetto before you go. The museum on the square is not very informative. HOWEVER, once you understand what happened here, this is a place...More

An absolute must when in Venice to visit one of the oldest ghettos in the world. It is a remarkable area where you can find locals and kids playing in the main square. The food is also fantastic

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
