You will be a bit surprised at Cannaregio. Where are the tourists that infest St. Mark’s Square?
You may see a few of them, but the lively Cannaregio is still a residential neighbourhood, and far less frequented than the popular Venetian sites.
Here you will discover the Jewish neighbourhood. It’s a real hub of social, cultural and commercial exchange. You will wander in and out of five synagogues built between the early 16th and the 17th century, a Museum, a Jewish library and archive, a publishing house, and traditional handicraft shops.
And that’s not to mention the several kosher food shops and restaurants…
