This part of Venice is the best part to stay. Though street market stalls abound. It has plenty of restaurants also go the canals.

We had read reports about this area before we visited Venice and it isn't far off the beaten track but we left the crowds behind to bar hop on a Friday night. Lovely canal street called the Fondamenta Ormesini which had many small eateries and drinking holes where you could grab an inexpensive (by Venetian standards) glass of wine. We... More

We stayed in a hotel in the Cannaregio area. I loved it because it wasn't as crowed. The people were friendly and it was homey. If I went back to Venice I would probably stay in the same area.

I stayed in this sestiere and it was really cool - less tourists than in San Marco, but lots of shops, bars, etc, not to mention the largest (probably) supermarket in Venice (Billa). Easy to find empty side-streets and places where to sit on the banks of canals.

We prefer a NON tourist area wherever we go this was it... With only a few fantastic restaurants, one shop and a hairdresser.. this is not for everyone.. and that is why we liked it

One of my favourite areas in Venice. Plenty of restaurants and cafes to sit and people watch. If (when!) I return to Venice I would probably try and stay in this area.

Great place to go, and if you do look out for the hidden Gem of a jazz club!! Great canal walks and shops along the way. Recommended.

This is a nice area - lots of nice architecture and buildings. We had a really nice walk around and felt this was definitely an area where locals spend their time.
