The Jews were basically penned up in the Ghetto at night in the beginning of their time in Venice. The city knew of their business skills and welcomed that but of course not being Catholic they were suspect. Same as in Rome earlier. So they...More

Well worth a visit, take the synagogue tour from the Jewish Museum. There are a number of kosher bakeries here that make great almond flavoured snacks.

We booked a private guide during our only free afternoon in Venice, missing St Mark's and the Doge's palace. Mistake! It is well worth a visit but you can do it on your own. The Museum (which we went to after our guide left) had...More

This is very definitely a different area in Venice. The buildings are like tenement blocks and close together. It is worth reflecting on how Jews were treated in Venice.

Walking around the Jewish Ghetto in Venice is a great way to imagine yourself back in time when Jews were isolated to this one area and locked up at night. The buildings are higher than any others in Venice due to the need to house...More

I had read on TA that this was one of the most “beautiful” areas of Venice. Guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder as the area did nothing for us. Armed guards in the Campo, rude children tearing through the area on...More

SO day three - decided no boats today but instead a walk around the main part of Venice. Great day - walked for ever, but saw the other, less touristy side of Venice. Some great bars, restaurants and very Bohemian environment - loved it !!

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
