  • The museum is temporary closed for renovation, but the synagogue tour is still ON.
  • Venice is an unique place to find the prints of jewish italian life. If you go to the Gheto Vechio, you will see the carving of mezuzahs at the doors, kosher restaurants, bakeries, judaica stores and the Jewish museum with its three synagogues (one of them still functioning today) you’ll tour trough Venice’s jewish life and connect to it. In the museum they offer guided tours in english and italian. If you want a deeper conection to judaism in europe, do not hesitate.
