Spent a morning wandering round - loads to see and plenty of churches to go into. Restaurants seem reasonably priced too.

Great area to base your stay in Venice within. Easy access to everywhere you would want to visit. We walked to St Marks Square in 20 minutes.

A walk through Cannaregio enables visitors to see and sense another aspect of Venice, away from the the tourist trail. The whole atmosphere of the area is tranquil and seemingly locked away in its own world

This is the residental area of a lot of the Venetians. The districs is also were the main trainterminal is situated and therefore the main walkpath into Venice. This makes it a bit less romantic and quite and does not give the full atmosphere of Venice.

I rented a 3 bedroom apartment for my stay in Venice here. The locals are nice & friendly. The restaurants are good and the prices are low.

The Cannaregio is really worth a visit. It was the original Ghetto in the 16th century, where Jews were restricted to living and you can still see the holes in the walls from the gates that used to lock the Jews inside at night. The Cannaregio is a bit off the tourist-trail and much over-looked by visitors to Venice. Spend... More

Don't be a tragic tourist and never leave San Marco. Go and explore Cannaregio, which Venetians regard as THEIR city. It includes the medieval Jewish ghetto and some gorgeous churches. A great wander round. Cross over from the Rialto Bridge and then cross back at the bridge in front of the Accademia.
