The ancient Jewish ghetto in Venice is in the Cannaregio district, one of the most authentic Venetian areas in the city, and yet quite unknown to tourists. We will try to understand what distinguished this multicultural, multiethnic area from all other Jewish quarters in Europe at that time, as well as learn the history of the Venetian Jewish community from 1516 to present day.
Our tour guide, Luisella Romeo lives and works in Venice, where her family has lived since the mid 1700s. Luisella has been a registered tourist guide since 2000.
Zoom link will be sent to all participants Friday April 1
