“Surrounded by water, the Campo del Ghetto is the evocative, melancholy heart of what was the world’s first Jewish ghetto, yet also within easy reach of the Rialto. With original decorated wooden ceilings, this stylish nine-room locanda dates from the 15th century and perfectly complements its surroundings. From the front portico, the reception area glows invitingly, while the light and airy bedrooms are all done out in the same elegant, understated style. Two have small terraces overlooking the campo, perfect for dreaming.”

“The Locanda del Ghetto is housed in a 16th century building that was redecorated in the 17th century. The ambiance and furnishings are minimal and essential, in keeping with the historical context of the hotel's location. With their sobriety and elegance, these features set the hotel apart from Venice's many accommodations.
The building is also home to the Italian Schola Synagogue and the Jewish Museum of Venice (next to the guesthouse).”
