Campo del Ghetto, Venice

4.4
#3 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Venice
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.

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.
