The Tour

Cannaregio is one of the most beautiful and quietest area of Venice.

Campos, gardens, long and sunny quaysides, narrow straight alleyways will lead us to discover the oldest ghetto in Europe with its fascinating history and culture.

A tour in the cosmopolitan Venice of the past, with the foreign communities who used to live in the city, contributing to the growth and combination of art and culture.

The Jewish Ghetto

Established in 1516, it is the oldest Ghetto in Europe.

It soon became a little micro-cosmo in the powerful Venice of the 16th c. and the synagogues can still testify its history.

The museum, the small shops, the tall buildings are all elements of this ancient place, still one of the most peculiar of the city.

Campo dei Mori

Far from the crowded areas, the small campo is curios for some statues of foreign merchants placed here a long time ago. Close to it stands Jacopo Tintoretto’s house, a nice Gothic building, characterized by other sculptures and reliefs.

Great masterpieces are visible inside, among them, the huge paintings by Tintoretto which decorate the chancel, and the amazing altarpiece by Cima da Conegliano.
