Join this tour to learn about the world's oldest official Jewish District, created by the Venetian government in 1516. The Jewish were required to move to a small island located in the northern part of the city if they wanted to stay safe and work running the banking system in the most important city of the Mediterranean. We will discover that long ago before WWII people were secluded, forced to respect a curfew and wear a special sign of distinction. Meeting at the agreed location and starting our tour heading to the site that was assigned to the Jewish community in 1516, a small island located in the northern part of Venice.
