Interesting historic place just a few minutes walk from St Mark's Square. Busy on weekends and lively

This is the side of Venice you want to visit. It is not quite a crowded as the main Grand Canal area. The cafes and shops here are lovely. Not just the normal trinkets that you see in the more tourist areas. Easy to negotiate the streets. Some very nice cafes with costs similar to the popular tourist cafes. Lovely... More

We stayed in this area (UNA Venezia) and really liked it. From a touristy perspective, you have the main street with shops and restaurants which run pretty much from St Lucia station right to Rialto Bridge and San Marco. I guess our hotel was pretty much in the middle, 2 minute walk from main street and around 10 minute walk... More

We ended up staying in Cannaregio, in a newly renovated townhouse at the back of an art gallery in the grounds of a former abbey (just behind the marina). We ended up there not by choice but because a couple of weeks before our visit we were told the owners had sold the apartment near St Mark's we had booked... More

Very quaint and less touristy place to spend your day. Very charming to experience what it would be like to actually live in Venice. Our B & B was in Cannaregio. If I would ever return, this is where I would stay again.

After much investigating I decided Cannaregio was where we would stay during our stay in Venice. 30 minute boat trip from Santa Lucia train station, easy 10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco & 15 minute walk to Rialto Bridge. Although we only ate at a couple of nearby restaurants they were very nice & reasonable given I have heard... More

Cannaregio is a great area to stay in if you don't mind a bit of noise at night and you like to be among the shops, restaurants and action. If you are visiting Venice and arriving at the Santa Lucia train station, it's easy to stay in this area and just walk your suitcases from the station to your hotel.... More

At the heart of Cannaregio lies the Old and New Jewish Ghetto of Venice. In a square surrounded by simple looking houses, are hidden synagogues that are unique in the world. Due to the restrictions Jews faced in the past, these incredibly beautiful monuments (5) were built in such a way that from the outside nothing gives away the secrets... More

We were staying in this part of the city. Was great to walk and explore this area. Many of the people seem to be locals, and it was uncrowded and charming.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
