Lovely area, next to train station and near to Grand Canal! Some really nice restaurants and cafes. If you stay here you should go to the Irish bar too! Most reviews say it takes around 30-40 minutes to walk to St Mark's square so we expected it to take a while, but we were there in 20 minutes! It was... More

No one should visit Venice without visiting all the six districts and Cannaregio is quite authentic as to how most Venetians live. The area between this district and Castello is where the Church of the Madonna dell 'Orto is located and what an active busy square it is! Also, the famous antiques and rug dealer, Houshang Rachtian, has his shop... More

Pleasant street to wander along with several bars and restaurants. Away from really popular tourist areas although within easy walking distance of Rialto and St Mark's Square.

Cannareggio offers a lot of great restaurants, bars and cafés in an authentic atmosphere far from the tourist hot-spots. Tipp: the tour of the synagogues!

Santa Lucia train station and Piazzale Roma are located in Cannaregio. You come to or leave Venice either by train or plane. Because public transportation is very expensive in Venice, you might consider to stay at Cannaregio area. Start walking in front of Santa Lucia train Staion towards San Marco, you will walk throughout touristic streets of Venice.

Far from the madding crowds around San Marco - and the hordes of cruise ship zombies. This is one of the more authentic areas of a brilliant city.

Walking through the unbelievably narrow streets and over the small foot bridges at night in search of authentic and delicious restaurants was one of my favorite parts of my trips. Although Venice doesn't have a lot of year long residents, many of those who do live in Venice, live here.

Easy to explore with long straight paths alongside quiet canals, opening up to give fabulous views across the lagoon. Not to many cafes/bars but a few restaurants hidden away. Generally off the beaten track.

This area is interesting because it has alot of non tourist shops and you can often speak with locals in shops and restaurants without being hustled. Also, the original Ghetto is here and is worth a few minutes
