The B&B's location is perfect: it's in a quiet street, but very close to Rialto bridge and at walking distance from Venice's main attractions and railway station. The room is not huge, but it is very clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and accomodating, Breakfast was good (hot beverage, croissant, cookies, fruits, juice, bread and jam) and offered...

This was exactly what we were looking for. We were two friends traveling together in July. It was basic and very clean, with our own shower and a TV. Really friendly staff and a great breakfast that'll definitely keep you going until lunch. (Breakfast croissant, rolls, jam, Nutella, three small bowls of fruit and whatever drink you want.) For directions:... More

We arrived at around 5pm so once we managed to find the place (go left at Rialto bridge, over a little bridge then right at the church and you'll see the Barababao restaurant sign hiding round the corner) we had to wait a little for the owner to arrive to let us in. The restaurant downstairs gave us a prosecco... More

Nice food. Mixed fried Sea food and vegetable was very nice. Have nice selection of deserts. Waiters are very friendly. Cool ambience. Service is slow and waiters do tend to forget your requests sometime. But mostly because it's so crowded. Otherwise when the restaurant cleared they turned out to be lovely people. Helping with our desert order. Teaching my daughter... More

Make sure you email this hotel before arriving to let them know what time you will get there, room was clean, and very close to everything you want to see! To get there take water bus to Rialto Bridge stop, go left from stop and stay straight on street (do not cross bridge) and its on a side street. Breakfast... More

Goid location near Rialto bridge. Can use express vaporetto from train station to Rualto bridge with only 2 stop. If not avalaible you can use vaporetto no.2. Good sleep. Average room. Good cleanliness. Pricey for room but think it's ok for central venice location. Good service. Average food. No elevator.

This B&B was closer to the Rialto Bridge than you can imagine. The room was all you need on vacation... clean & comfy bed and bathroom. We were there for a hot, humid week in July and the air conditioning worked perfectly. Small fridge to keep our water and soda ready for the morning's excursions. Breakfast was lovely. A pastry...

Less than a five minute walk from the Rialto bridge. Close to many of the attractions. Very friendly hosts that speak English. Nice continental breakfast served between 8:30-10:30 am with croissant, coffee, fresh fruit. Small private bathroom and clean room. Nearby a busy street but quite at night. Expect to pay around 125-130 Euros a night. The only issue I... More

The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. The Bed and Breakfast is perfectly located in the center of the city. And for me and my husband, first time visitors of Venice, we appreciated that it was right next to Ponte Rialto, since signs all around the city direct to the famous bridge. So when we got lost, all we had... More

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.
