Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Campo del Ghetto
Dating back to the early 16th century, Campo del Ghetto may be the first Jewish ghetto established in the world--the word "ghetto" comes from this place. Although many of the approximately 500 Venetian Jews live elsewhere in the town, they still come here for religious services and celebrations. While in the area, you can see the small but informative Jewish Museum, see a bronze holocaust memorial, and grab a bite at a kosher restaurant.

This was my favorite part of Venice. It felt more of an untouched area with a lot of locals, beautiful side streets and quiet corners. It was nice to learn a little about the history of Jewish people in Venice.
The old Venice, full of history.
