Casa Rebecca is situated in the historical center of Venice, in the Sestiere di
Cannareggio, precisely in the old Jewish Ghetto (Campo Gheto Vecio). The place
is rich in history.
The ghetto in Venice was the first in the history of Europe. It was created
around the Sixteenth century when the Doge of Venice ordered all the Jewish
people to live in one single neighborhood, which was to be shut and under
surveillance during the night. Such decision was taken to compensate the freedom
of religion and protection in trading affairs allowed to the Jewish community.
That’s the reason why the area boasts seven splendid synagogues.
The ghetto was an extremely crowded place. A proof of such condition is the
height of the buildings in the neighborhood and the fact that the ceilings
inside the apartments were not high at all so as to allow the construction of
Nowadays the area is tranquil and mainly Venetians live in the place. A few
steps is all you have to take to arrive at the nearest shops and restaurants.
In the Sestiere, there are other important tourist attractions as Ca’ D’Oro,
Palazzo Labia, among others.
