Wonderful visit to Venice with our grandsons

We had a great time this summer on our visit to Venice. our grandsons enjoyed the area and the gondola ride and water taxis. We included a nice visit to Murano Island

A really interesting part of Venice, with wonderful street-life, cafés and bars. There is a buzz here, yet it's away from the madding crowds of St Mark's or Rialto.

A quieter area of Venice but not far from the biz. We wanted to stay in this area to see a bit of the "real" Venice. We still had all the canals and discreet alley's but without the hustle and crowds of the main tourist spots. A lot of really nice small restaurants and cafes. Had a nice long weekend... More

We are staying in Cannaregio. Like most of Venice there are beautiful canals, with cool stores running all along the main strip.

Cannaregio is a great little canal, straight over the the 1st bridge as you go along Lista Di Spagna, turn down the left bank of the canal, you will pass a few little cafes, al Parlamento is just across from the public boat station. This canal is less busy but a great place to watch the boats go by and... More

We loved Cannaregio, it's a beautiful area of Venice. It's very easy to walk from the train station to St Marks through Cannaregio, especially if you are staying in this area, or Santa Croce. You really feel like you are seeing how Venetians live, great shops, lovely places to eat at good prices,lovely little canals and bridges, churches etc. We... More

We staying at an airbnb in this area of Venice and were quit pleased to see we were living as local Venetians. Close enough to water taxis with great local restaurants and the everyday life of Venice flowing by.

We spent several hours and many steps in this quiet district in Venice. Open air markets, fresh fish stands and beautiful fruits and veggies. Very laid back and charming little shops and restaurants. Would definitely try to stay here on our next visit.!!

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
