Jewish Ghetto Venice
Transfer by private motor launch to the Canneragio Canal. Here you will visit the medieval Jewish Ghetto. The Ghetto is the first in Europe and was instituted in 1516 by the Government of the Serenissima Repubblica. Here, the Jews were confined to the area from sunset to dawn. Today there are only a few Jewish families in the Ghetto but the ethnic flavor of the neighborhood remains. You will visit the area with a private local Jewish guide and your tour will include one of the synagogues . Return to your ship after the tour.
A great private shore excursion to the historic Jewish Ghetto of Venice, the oldest in the world. In the late 1300's a Jewish community began to settle in Venice. At that time they were confined to one area which in Venetian was called “getto” a slang expression referring to the refinery in the area. With a private guide, visit this very interesting and historical part of the city.
