      • Cannaregio is home to the Il Ghetto, Venice’s Jewish neighborhood. This area was made famous by Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, which featured a Venetian merchant Jew and his family! It is now a historical neighborhood where a small, slowly diminishing Jewish community still resides. An interesting tidbit to take note of here is that Venetian laws forbade the building of separate synagogues, so the synagogues are build on the top floors of the buildings instead. Check out the Holocaust memorials on both sides of the Casa di Riposa building.
