One of the unusual places to visit in Venice is the Jewish Ghetto. The Ghetto is found in Cannaregio and in particular includes the Ghetto Nuovo and Ghetto Vecchio. This section is usually separated from Venice since it was been used as foundry so as to reduce the damage that could result if fire broke out.

This Ghetto grew as a result of a restriction that was imposed to the Jews of Venice from accessing this interior section of Venice. The expansion of the Jewish Ghetto was not easy since the place was tucked-away and had bridges which remained gated and was guarded during the night.
