Cheap hotels near Jewish Ghetto in Venice, Italy
In 1516, the Venetian government decreed that Jews could work throughout the city by day, but at night and on Christian holidays they must retreat to their ghetto.
Today, the quarter is the center of the city’s vibrant Jewish community. Monuments and tablets, some naming Jews who died during times of intolerance (including those sent by Mussolini to concentration camps) are hung throughout the neighborhood.
Worth visiting are the neighborhood’s synagogues, many of which offer guided tours. The Jewish Museum of Venice is also here. For more information, visit the museum’s Web site.
