Great area to visit. Try and get off the crowded main thoroughfare and you will see the real Venice. Walk without your maps and enjoy getting lost a little. The locals will point you back to the busy spots when and if you want the crowds again

Not really an attraction, one of the sestiere (neighborhoods) of Venice. Lovely place to walk in and through (everywhere in Venice is a thru walkway to somewhere else). Nice shops and restaurants, a nice feeling of lovely Venice.

We stayed in an apartment in Cannaregio and it gave us a different experience of Venice. This is the area where local people live and work and go about their daily life, being friendly to tourists like us invading their world. This area is convenient to vaporetto stops, S. Marcuola is 5 minutes walk from the heart of Cannaregio and... More

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.
