The Venetian Ghetto is one of the less touristic area of the city. Strolling around its narrow streets is a unique experience. The Ghetto was always overcrowded so the buildings are taller compared to the other sestrieri. Also the synagogues are very particular and not only because they were strongly influenced by the Venetian art. During the renaissance the law forbade to build separate synagogues so in order to obey the Jewish law that doesn’t allow to have any obstructions between them and the heavens they were built on top of other buildings!
