Medieval Jewish ghetto in the Cannaregio district in Venice

Corner of the medieval Jewish Ghetto of Venice in Italy

Assessment: ** Recommendable

In you trip to Venice, if you want to know another side of the city of the canals, far from the big tourist agglomerations, I recommend that you approach the ancient Jewish Ghetto, which is located in the district of Cannaregio.

Northeast of Venice an area is located that in the medieval times It was used to group the city's Jews in a ghetto, so you can see narrow alleys, passageways and small canals, all between multi-storey houses, the highest in the city.

In the seventeenth century more than five thousand people lived in the Jewish Ghetto, and it was not until 1866 when they were released from confinement.
