The Ghetto

A door to Jewish culture.

Within Il Ghetto ,Venice hides a door to Jewish culture. Limited to a small portion of the Cannaregio district to the north of the city, this Jewish neighbourhood was one of the first to be created in Europe. This makes it an ideal place to get to know their culture. Here, in addition to visiting the Jewish Museum and the different synagogues, it's worth taking a stroll through the streets. If you are not in a rush, it's best to stop in each liturgy and kosher product shop that you see. On the one hand, your attention will be drawn by everyday objects that range from clothing and accessories to various types of decorations. The majority of these decorative objects are closely linked to the religion and it is interesting to learn about their uses. If you would like to learn more, it's a good idea to find out first if the trader is sociable or not. The other interesting part, from a commercial point of view, is the food. Don't hesitate to stop in the different kosher shops or aptos , that only sell food products that are approved by biblical and Talmudic law. This law is quite strict and peculiar but, if you have time, don't forget to try the food, either in shops or in any of the restaurants.
