We stayed in the pleasant department of Santa Croce, next to the department of Cannaregio. However, having walked around all 6 of the Sestieri for 6 days I came to the conclusion that Cannaregio was my favourite. Cannaregio is the most Northern big hump of Venice next to the train station.

A buzzing area of Venice with any amount of hotels and restaurants to choose from as well as shops and market stalls. Open morning until late and very safe.

The Ghetto Nuovo was especially important to me in thinking of the persecution of the Jews down through history. The area of the city has unique bars and restaurants and is a very easy area to like.

Although not included in the 12 museums group ticket, it is well worth the extra 8 euro fee. The views are unmatched! A must do in Venice.

I enjoyed wondering through the area, it's quieter than the more "Popular" districts, such as San Polo.....I had a sense of being in the " real" Venice!

LOVED wandering around this area. Felt like I was in Maze Runner at times--the little alleyways, doorways, winding back and forth and all around. Loved the small stores and shopping, the quaint bars and restaurants. Will definitely be back.

Has a lot of nice shops and restaurants to check out, but also peaceful areas where you can escape tourist mania and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Honestly just the best of both worlds.

Walk and get lost, see how the real locals interact. It hosts the only place where you can actually see more than canals. Has a nice view of the airport, Mestre, sunsets. It also has different fun and local places to go and eat or have a drink, dance, have kosher food or a good pizza!
