Our hotel was located in Cannaregio and it took us about 15 minutes to walk through the narrow streets and romantic bridges to get to Piazza San Marco. There are lots of great restaurants in Cannaregio, but less crowded and definitely less noisy than in/around the San Marco area.

I always stay around this area whenever I'm in Venice. I find it convenient especially when coming with your own car because Piazzale Roma is walking distance where the carpark is situated. Also good for those traveling with the train since this is where Sta. Lucia Train Station is located. May restaurants and good shopping too!

Most people only cross Cannaregio, because they hurry through after arriving by train. But this is a juwel itself, lighter and cleaner than the centre, with very nice restaurants and the small jewish part. Good to relax in the evening

During our last trip, we had to add Venice in our busy itinerary because of our nephew's graduation at the Ca' Foscari uni at calle San Giobbe. It has been a pleasure to walk along the Cannaregio canal, watching the ambulance or post office boats instead of touristy gondolas; spotting relaxed tourists or looking at a few terraces on top...

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. Here you will find the Jewish ghetto and it is well worth a visit for many reasons both historical and visual. Cannaregio as a whole has an authentic venetian atmosphere and the canals are... More

Cannaregio is a mainly residential area of Venice but there is still much to see here in a less quieter and less crowded way. Small restaurants offer better value than those in the main tourist areas. Churches such as Madonna Del Orto are well worth a visit. And the Jewish area dating from the 14th century was the first Ghetto... More

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.
