    Jewish Ghetto Venice Tour-  Private Guided Walking Tour In Venice, 2 hrs

    Your local guide will carefully plan your Jewish Ghetto Venice tour so that you don’t miss any of the sights because of crowds.  You’ll be in a private tour anyway, so the experience is quite intimate.

    The Jewish Ghetto in Venice is in the Cannaregio district, now a fascinating residential area in the northern part of the city. You’ll be aware of the historic Jewish influence the minute you enter this area as you will see yellow signs in Hebrew and Italian directing you to the Synagogue.  

    Stop At: Campo Di Ghetto Nuovo, Venice Italy

    Your local guide will take you on a wonderful voyage of discovery as you explore this historic area on a fascinating walking tour through Jewish Ghetto Venice.

    Cross the bridge into Campo del Ghetto Nuovo (New Ghetto Square) which belies its name as it was founded as a fortified island in 1516. Hear how the Venetian Jews were confined to the island and how it became densely populated. The resourceful residents found the solution to the overcrowded conditions; building tenement blocks up to six stories high – an innovative novelty in 16th century Europe!

    Peek inside the famous Antichita al Ghetto antique store and see the Library Renato Maestro with its ancient manuscripts and dusty archives.

    One of the most significant highlights of your Jewish Ghetto Venice tour is a series of bas-reliefs in the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo – a sight most visitors to Venice sadly never get to see!

    Learn how Napoleon tore down the gates of the Jewish Ghetto, giving Jews the right to live anywhere in this grand “Floating City.” Although only a small percentage of the present-day residents are Jewish, the district is awash with Jewish culture, bakeries, restaurants and handicraft stores.

    This hidden niche of cultural life in Venice comes vividly to life as your local guide escorts you from one fascinating corner to the next, regaling you with tales of past residents that will add a rich undertone to your visit to Venice.

    This 2-hour Jewish Ghetto Venice tour is probably the most memorable part of any visit to Venice. Join us, escape the crowds, and you’ll see what we mean!

    ( Visits inside the synagogues and the museum are not included.  You can do so when your two-hour tour finishes with your guide.)
