ABOVE: The  Hotel icon  icons mark hotels near the Guglie stop of the Alilaguna Orange Line airport boat. The Kosher House is at the top of the map, above the word "Ghetto."

The Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni is a 14-room inn that overlooks the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo in Europe's oldest ghetto (see our illustrated article). Although it caters to a traditional Jewish audience with its kosher restaurant and mikveh baths, visitors of any background are welcome.

How to reach the Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni from the Guglie airport-boat stop:

  1. As you leave the boat platform, turn right and walk a few meters to the Gam Gam restaurant, where you'll see a passage that leads to the Jewish Ghetto.

  2. Go through the passage and walk straight ahead (with the occasional jog) past the Majer bakery and over a small bridge.

  3. After crossing the bridge, you'll be in the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo. The Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni is up ahead,  along the northwestern side of the square.

From the Santa Lucia Railroad Station:

  1. Leave the railroad station by the marble steps outside the main doors, or by the easy-to-miss (and conveniently stair-free) side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.

  2. When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in front of the station, turn left.

  3. Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).

  4. Continue down the Lista di Spagna and through the Camp San Geremia to the Ponte delle Guglie, a stone bridge that arches over the Cannaregio Canal.

  5. Cross the bridge and immediately turn left.

  6. Walk until you reach the passage to the Ghetto, which is just before the Gam Gam restaurant.

  7. Go through the passage and walk straight ahead (with the occasional jog) past the Majer bakery to a small bridge.

  8. Cross the bridge, which leads into the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo. The the Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni will be almost directly ahead of you, on the northwestern side of the square.
