Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,015 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

There are three etymology of word “ghetto” ( it doesn’t sound very nice indeed) The first one is a German derivation as a street. The second one is a diminutive of the Italian word borghetto , little town The last one is the derivation of Italian word ghetto as a foundry. Here in Venice you can find the Jews ghetto since 1516 in this area where there was the foundries of the city. You can find many Jews symbols, Synagogue and the great Jews museum.

Another canal in Venezia. This zone is also very crowded in you can find many restaurants but I wouldn't recommend to eat in Venezia. Is etter to get out of the island. This zone is also very decadent and dirty.

This was the area where Jews were compelled to live by the government of the Venetian Republic, was instituted on March 29 of year 1516. When Napoleon Bonaparte occupied Venice he ended the ghetto 's separation from the city on 11 July 1797. The ghetto is in an area of the Cannaregio sestieri of Venice, divided into the New Ghetto and the Old Ghetto. In the ghetto, there are several Judaica shops, synagogue, yeshiva and the Info Point of the Jewish Community of Venice. There are also guided tours offered by the Jewish Community Museum.

A bit off the beaten track, some of this area is a bit more modern than typical Venice, with wider streets and rather cleaner. It's a more residential area and worth wandering through..

We were staying in Cannaregio so popped into the Ghetto area (this is where the modern word comes from) for a quick look around and stayed for several hours. There's not only a lot of the familiar history of segregation and persecution to see but there's also thriving shops and restaurants around as well. The tours and museums are to be recommended.
