Create an itinerary including Campo del Ghetto
Dating back to the early 16th century, Campo del Ghetto may be the first Jewish ghetto established in the world--the word "ghetto" comes from this place. Although many of the approximately 500 Venetian Jews live elsewhere in the town, they still come here for religious services and celebrations. While in the area, you can see the small but informative Jewish Museum, see a bronze holocaust memorial, and grab a bite at a kosher restaurant.

  • I believe Cannaregio was the site of Europe’s first Jewish ghetto. It is important to recognize its significance in history. The neighborhood is actually quite beautiful to walk around in also.

  • Nice little Campo, away from the busy areas, definitely worth a visit if you have the time. Great history in the Campo, take some time to look around.
  • Cool district, very close to the railway station. Full of restaurants, coffe houses and bars.
