Well-known for its fish shape, the city of Venice is divided into six subdivisions corresponding to neighborhoods in other cities, called sestieri in Italian. Each is full of history and places to discover. In the late Friday afternoon, head to Cannareggio, the northernmost district of Venice, situated just above the very popular Canal Grande. The area is still not affected by mass tourism, yet it is one of the most intriguing. The lively and suggestive area of Canareggio is famous for its Jewish Ghetto, the first and the oldest one established in Europe. During the long Venetian rule, a specific law obliged the Jewish community to reside in this well-defined neighborhood. Still today, it is among the most interesting cultural and historical legacies the Republic of the Lion left. In this fascinating part of the city, the various synagogues and the tall buildings reaching even up to seven floors and meant to fit more people - evoke the past characteristic and way of life of Jewish, becoming a centerpiece of Jewish culture in Venice. And nevertheless, it was founded over five centuries ago, the ghetto still preserves these authentic ethnic features to explore at a slow pace. Photo: Venice to See - www.venicetosee.com
