Italy and to have a great time. If you love to shop around, you can really enjoy your shopping experience here due to the lack of huge crowds who throng other shopping malls in the country. Romantic people can walk around the back streets of the city and have a nice time.

All the area, and the close Rio della Misericordia, is nice to visit and during the evening, Rio della Misericordia is full of nice and small restaurants/pubs.

The Jewish Ghetto is one of the most fascinating areas to visit in Cannaregio. Vibrant and historic.

A fascinating unspoilt little corner of Venice that was formerly the Jewish Ghetto.

I often have strong literary associations with places that I have visited in Europe. For Venice the obvious connection is the "Merchant of Venice," which in part focuses on the Jewish ghetto in the city. My wife and I visited the ghetto around Christmas and we were intrigued by the site of Menorahs and Stars of David as well as advertisements in Hebrew. In one of the main squares there was actually a rather large Menorah. It's great to see one of the original communities of the city is still thriving.

A historically rich neighborhood. I highly recommend visiting and touring the Jewish museum.

Jewish Ghetto in Venice is quite a large area where the Jewish Community is still quite strong ( on the contrary in many other italian cities, ghetto is nowadays populated by other people).taking a walk through ghetto you will found out some cult places, Jewish restaurants and shops, with sign in jewish alphabet. it is very common also to meet jewish people with "cernecchi".Definitively a very intersting place to visit.

This is the neighborhood I stayed in for a week in Venice. I loved it. Instead of grappling with hordes of tourists and cheesy shops, we shopped with Italian grandmas, young moms and an influx of Orthodox Jews who had come to visit family for the Passover.
Strolling the back streets at night was lovely as well as sitting in the square eating lunch while children played around us and men went home for lunch. There are also some really lovely Jewish bookstores and art galleries.

Il Ghetto di Venezia ospitava una delle comunità ebraiche più grandi d'Italia finché gli Ebrei furono costretti ad allontanarsi. Oggi rimane uno dei luoghi più piacevoli in cui passeggiare in città, e tutto sommato ancora poco conosciuto dai turisti.
