About these ratings

In 1516, Jews in the Venice area were forced to move to a small northwestern section of the island. Today, this area is a part of the Cannaregio sestiere (district) and fills with restaurants and shops, as well as several synagogues, which are open for touring. Although it's free to wander around the neighborhood -- and you might want to do just that, as it's filled with interesting stores and good restaurants -- the synagogue tours do cost. For a deeper understanding of the ghetto's history, recent travelers recommend booking a walking tour through Venice Tours or another tour agency.
