Attached to the museum was one of the synagogues used by the Jewish community. A person who was on staff at the synagogue was extremely knowledgeable and spoke with us at length about the different Jewish communities who immigrated into Venice.

Its easy to see how closed off this area must have felt to those living in the Jewish quarter of Venice. With gates to the bridges closed in the evening. Its such an interesting area, and visiting the synagogues is a must (part of a...More

It is a small trek to this area of Venice but worth it for the peace, some wonderful works of art and this haunting location. It is steeped in a sad history but fascinating nonetheless. The Holocaust memorial is very dignified and arresting.

I did not understand how tiny the area is! Definitely do the tour from the museum. It is how you get to see inside the synagogues and get a historical context (won’t say the tour guide was good but would not have been valuable to...More

I regret not taking the guided tour of the Jewish Ghetto where I would have learned a lot about the different structures, nuances & history. Instead I walked around. So with that said, I think the guide is beneficial for this epic historical site. I'm...More

Peaceful and time to reflect. Quiet little ghetto now, with a long history, started in 1516. We walked around on our own and had a drink at a little cafe. There is a museum there that shows the hidden synagogues that were in the apartments....More

We spent a couple of hours wandering around the area. It was quiet and peaceful and obviously you are thinking of how it must have been when it became the first ghetto in the 15th century. We enjoyed meandering through the alleyways and along the...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

Well, the wayI see it, the área of the Jewish ghetto is actually so small, you don`t really need joining a tour. Asking around the locals will provide you all the guidance you may need. Still, keep in mind the Shabbat, ok... More

It was a tour company that we found online, and said we want a simple, custom tour. That's what happened! Best I can do.
