  • Visit the Museum in 10 minutes. No explanation. 8 EUR per person is a more than reasonable price! He must add 4 EUR for the visit to the synagogue. ... no interest in this way of presenting the ghetto while there are probably a lot of things to learn. Very disappointed.

  • If we stop at the neighborhood without talking about museums and synagogue then the district has no more (or less) of interest than the rest.

  • Interesting Museum but I think the visit go done with driving, ours was a nice girl and prepared. Besides the Museum took us to visit 3 synagogues. Small but interesting synagogues, two inside the Museum and outside the Museum but still in the ghetto. The story she told us of the ghetto, was emotionally engaging. Nice experience

  • Nice museum with quite some artifacts. Be sure to go on a guided tour of the old synagogues, otherwise you're only enjoying 30% of the beauty
  • Beautiful collection and nicely done descriptions. Highlight is the tour of the gorgeous synagogues.
  • Great museum. Tour of the old synagogues was amazing. Located in a neat little shopping ing area a little bit off the main tourist areas.
  • This museum is tucked away in the Venetian ghetto away from popular tourist attractions in Venice. It offers guided tours through 3 of the 5 Sephardic and Ashkenazi synagogues in the area, a cafeteria that serves traditional pastries, and a bookstore. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is welcoming.
  • Went on a guided tour. Guide spoke good English and gave an excellent overview of Jewish Venice, it's Ghetto and 3 of the 5 synagogues. Also answered our questions. Gift shop definitely worth visiting. Lastly, the Museum also features a Kosher dairy cafeteria with cookies, pastries, coffee and average cuisine. Two days in a row, we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing lunch.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
