Meeting point: 9.40 am in Campo del Ghetto Novo, close to the well located in the middle of the square
Due to the limited number of admitted visitors to the guided tour, the visit is reserved to students attending the course History of Venice, who will have their visit sponsored by VIU, and open to a small number of interested students and faculty.
The Jewish Museum of Venice is located in Campo del Ghetto Novo, between the two most ancient synagogues in Venice.
It is a small but very rich museum founded in 1953 by the Jewish Community of Venice.
The museum is divided into two areas: the former is devoted to the cycle of Jewish festivities and to liturgical objects, the latter -planned with a greater educational approach- deals with the history of Venetian Jews.
