If you travel to Venice regularly as I do, yes, you will find it increasingly overrun by tourists (like ourselves). Still, in the narrow streets among the ancient, historical buildings, you find an atmosphere, that is one of a kind. When you are fed up with the classical tourist sites in sestierti San Marco, explore the outer areas and not... More

Cannaregio is quieter than the centre near San Marco, and it seems to be a place where there are still people living locally. It was a good place to wander and people-watch. There were also some interesting handcraft and mask shops (including one which made the masks on site). I found this a very interesting place for an early morning... More

After the hoards of people around San Marco Piazza, I felt like I was in more "authentic" Venice. We stayed in the Cannaregio district and would totally recommend it. It is still the same winding walk ways with little shops and campo's but less people and you see more of what I thought was the everyday life of a Venetian,... More

I like the Cannaregio around the Jewish quarter. It's very different. The canals are still there but quieter. Great shops making costumes and hats for the Festival. Sit and have a pizza in the Nuovo del Ghetto

Any excuse to walk through Cannaregio is a good one and should be part of your visit to Venice. There are more local shops and restaurants then in other touristy places and the mix of locals and tourists is pleasant. It feels like a good place to walk and a fun place to plan your lunch stop.
