Cannaregio and Jewish Ghetto (private)

Veneto/Venice

This is a unique walk through the popular neighborhood of Cannaregio. This tour includes some monuments, palaces and churches in one of the ancient but richest area of the town, the famous Jewish Ghetto, the first in Europe. ‘Ghetto’ is in fact a Venetian word meaning ‘foundry’ because the Jewish quarter was built replacing a foundry (a factory producing metal castings). This name now means ‘Jewish District’ all over the world. Here you can join in a visit of the Jewish Synagogues with specialized guides.
