An evocative stroll in the city commoners’ district: Cannaregio. You will be shown the major monuments and churches of one of the most ancient parts and still one of the most populated parts of the city. Visiting the Venice Jewish Ghetto, set in a tranquil corner of Cannaregio quarter, extends the opportunity to understand how tolerant and cosmopolitan the Republic of Venice was. Proceeding through Campo dei Mori, your guide will uncover some of the city’s architectural and sculptural treasures. You will also go by the house of famous painter Tintoretto and you will visit the church where he was baptized and buried after lining its wall with his masterpieces.
The tour will end in the area of the Jewish Ghetto. In fact, the word Ghetto derives from Venetian language, meaning foundry: the Ghetto was built on the site of a foundry and the name Ghetto was adopted throughout the world. From here, you will have the opportunity to visit the Jewish museum and the Synagogues, with internal guides.
