Turning right from the train station takes you to Cannaregio. This area has shopping more geared to the locals although there are still tourist shops. The ghetto is in this sestiere.Makes an interesting morning walk if you start at the train station and end in St Mark's.

It was by accident that I booked the hotel I did in this area but I got lucky! It was a gorgeous area, full of locals and very few tourists. Prices are reasonable for this reason, it's also great location for walking to the more tourist areas.

Away from the maddening crowds but with most things in reach. Lots of good value eateries. Just makes the San Marco scene much more of a rip off. Ghetto, Strada Nove, Ca'd'Oro, Fondamente Nove embarco points for Torcello, Burano etc all close by.

Off-the-beaten path, a stroll through Cannaregio is recommended! No crowds. Trees! Nice cafes. Great shots.

The main promenade of Cannaregio is wide and area and takes you from the train station halfway to San Marco. It is full, but not to crowded, with shops, restaurants and human beings both tourists and Venetians with many of the locals out walking their dogs. It is a great place for both tourist shopping and stocking up on more... More

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

It has plenty of curio shops & restaurants too, but also a lot of area for a pleasant evening walk. We did not manage to explore the area which used to be first jewish ghetto due to lack... 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.
