A unique walk through the popular neighbourhood of Cannaregio on the North-West side of the city. Cannaregio was - and still is - one of the most populated Sestieri (quater) of Venice. Typical streets on a canal side. This tour includes some monuments, palaces and churches in one of the ancient but richest area of the town: the famous Jewish Ghetto.
“Ghetto” is a Venetian word meaning “foundry” because the Jewish quarter was built replacing a foundry. This name now means “Jewish District” all over the world. Here you can join a visit of the Jewish Synagogues with specialised guides.
