Sant Alvise is in the top north corner of Canareggio and can be reached either by vaporetto - there is a stop named after it - or by walking along the unspoilt authentic canals which have wide fondamente and a scattering of sleepy little bars for locals. The exterior of the church is incredibly plain and almost looks like a... More

I heard a lecture about Venice and the lecturer showed this church. I wrote it down with 5 stars near it, so that whenever I go to Venice I must go there. I went this summer to Venice. it was a bit far from the center, but all transportation were free as we bought a 3 days card for all... More

Except the paintings, there is nothing much here. Also it is quite far from the usual routes. Pretty boring. Recommended only for Gothic fans.

This beautiful little church is in the north east most tip of Cannaregio and one of the Chorus pass group (10 euros gets you entrance to about 15 churches in Venice). Its over 600 years old and still very much used as the local community church.Its bells ring out on the hour and half hour.Like all other churches in Venice... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
