Quaint, comfy, and away from the crowds. For that little moment when you just want to get away from the crowds.

Loads of great food around here in small trattorias and not mad with tourists all day and night. Stay here and move about town from here very easily

Apart from the draw of such as Ca d'Oro this area is a gem once you venture off Strada Nova. Even a visit to the Ghetto can be quiet.

The Cannaregio district including the canal of the same name is just as fascinating as the "main attractions" of Rialto and San Marco in my opinion.

We stayed for a week in this area and it was interesting in itself and only took 20 min walk on a well signposted walk past many shops into san marco square.We would choose to stay here again.

We visited this area on several occasions following the main tourist trail from the railway station down to the Rialto bridge and also went off the beaten track, great place in which to lose a few hours, lots of photo opportunities.

We rented an apartment through airbnb. We did not want to stay too close to the really touristy areas. We stayed in the Cannaregio. It was perfect. 20 minute walk to train station. 5 minute walk to vaporetto stop. Longer, but fun walk to St. Mark's. Good restaurants and a grocery right around the corner. Loved it. Wish we had...

Very interesting history. There is also a museum that offers tours of synagogues. There are some interesting shops that sell murano glass items. They also sell Jewish-themed glass items to purchase too.
