Away from the bustle of St Marks enjoy this beautiful part of Venice reached after passing the Rialto Bridge. make sure you visit the Ghetto and the beautiful Miracoli Church.

You feel in a real place not in a museum and you are not bothered by the crowd as in other parts of the town

Our hotel was located in Cannaregio in the Ghetto and couldn't have asked for a better base for our holiday. The hotel was situated right on the Grand Canal and the water taxi dropped us off right to the hotel front door after a journey of around 30 mins which was an experience in itself arriving just as the sun...

Away from St Marks in the northern part of the city is Cannaregio. Here the alleys are narrower, the piazzas emptier the pace slower. Go there.

Our hotel was in this area. There is so much to see and do. Very easy to get lost in the streets. Beautiful.

There's a lot to see walking through this district in Venice. Any one of the Venice apps or guide books will give you a list of sites. The ghetto is important to see, including the Jewish museum and the synagogue tour, and aside from that, we just found it very nice to walk around.

When you've seen all the "must see" places take a wander around this area particularly the northern part. This is where the people live and socialise, the streets are quiter, the canals are quieter and somehow it seems more authentic. There are many canal side coffee shops and bars. Don't get worried about getting lost, there are frequent signs to... More

We stayed in Cannaregio and it suited us great. Away from the crowds, nice quiet streets and canal to walk around - great bars and restaurants to just stumble across and enjoy. But close enough to get to the main attractions on foot or by boat quite quickly. We had never been to Venice before and it was an ideal... More

This locality was somehow a quiet retreat and not saturated with tourists. I found it to be a welcome escape each evening after the madness of exploring the rest of Venice!
