Walk throughout one of the oldest Jewish neighbourhood of the world


Our walk focuses on the history of the Jewish in Venice, on how, when and why the Ghetto was created, on the attitude of the Venetian Government at the time, on a more recent and sad chapter of our history, the holocaust.

The history of the Jewish community has deeply interacted with the history of Venice and of the Venetians, from 1516 and before up to World War I and II and to our days. Five synagogues, shops, a kosher bakery, restaurants and much more witness and tell us how lively the area and the Jewish community still are.

The tour starts in Campo San Bartolomeo, near the bridge of Rialto, and hits all the main sites once connected to the life and the history of the Jewish in Venice: the market, the neighbourhood of Cannaregio, the three Ghettos.
