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!

No matter where you stay, everything in Venice is an interesting and scenic walk away, so if you're hoping to stay away from the tourist hotels in St Mark's, the Cannaregio area is really lovely. The canalside restaurants along the Misericordia are much less expensive, lovely and vibrant, and some even serve you on board their little boats moored alongside... More

This area is more frequented by locals and is quieter and cleaner. It is also close to the Ghetto which is a very nice area and also within walking distance to the train station area which has a ton of shopping/restaurants and cafes.

Cannaregio is right across the Grand Canal from the B&B we stayed in and was a lovely find. We went there in search of a well-hidden boatyard, one that specializes in restoring vintage Venetian craft. As it turned out, we didn't find it but we had a great time wandering around, enjoying finding local bakeries, trattoria, and shops. The Ghetto... More

We spent a fair amount of time in this area as we stayed here during our time in Venice. We actually stayed at someone's apartment as we booked through air bnb and it was fab as I feel like we got a real flavour of what Venice is like for Venetians - rather than just seeing all of the tourist...

I really liked this area out of everywhere I went in Venice. It is not crowded or über touristy. A lot of locals hanging around, great trattorias around and cute plazas. Must visit!
