The Ghetto area (1)




The Ghetto area (2)


  In its northern section, Venice becomes more discreet, more reserved as any other part, with a third of its citizens living in the CANNAREGIO section, the biggest sestriere of town. The JEWISH GHETTO and MADONNA DELL'ORTO are the cultural highlights. A paradise for city walkers, retarded romantics and poets looking for inspiration. The area is terribly contrasted. You pass in a minute from the busy animation around the train station to the calm and quietness of the ghetto. Stroll and taste the delicious atmosphere (with a minimum of tourists) of this area. 
I will not repeat my review of the Palazzo Labia and San Geremia, already visited on page /Venice/Rialto_Labia.htm
