My husband and I had the opportunity to stay some extra time in Venice after our 17 day transatlantic cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Venice. We had stayed at Sandra's B&B back in 2003 when we were doing an independent land trip of Italy. It is a delightful place and Sandra and her husband are most hospitable. The B&B is... More

What a fantastic b&b! Sandra and her husband are clearly seasoned professionals. Great attention to detail. Wonderful room over looking the canel. Lots of character in the building and the surrounding area. Fab breakfast with lots of choice. Sooooooo much better than a hotel!

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in June 2014. Wonderful breakfast, freshly prepared fruit, cured meats, cakes and breads. We were made to feel very welcome and loved the decor and resident cat. Sandra was always quick to offer advice and tips which was really helpful. Great location and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location, gorgeous room, delicious breakfast, friendly owners - what more could you ask for?! It's a quick and easy boat ride from Marco Polo airport and a 10 minute walk to the Rialto bridge. We stayed in the beautiful attic room which was spotlessly clean with a lovely en suite bathroom and private roof terrace, and a fabulously comfy... More

venice is superb and i will not dwell on that. but, sometimes, a perfect city experience can be ruined by a not so perfect accommodation. this is not the case with this home. because it is a home, with a living room full of family photos and heirlooms, with a cat on the sofa, a lovely breakfast table with windows...

Having spent 15 years dodging going to Venice my bluff was called when our son treated us to a surprise trip. When told we were staying in a B&B I wasn't sure what it would be like. I was rather hoping for a posh hotel like those I had heard about. How wrong could I be. From the moment you... More

Sandra makes you feel welcome from the first moment! This B&B is in the quiet area of Venice, where the Venetians live. Room clean, nice and bed comfortable. Breakfast is amazing, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, cake, and a traditional dish different each day, and cake left in the room each day. We got the water taxi there from the station, which... More

We have just returned to the UK after staying in the home of Sandra and Leonardo at B&BSandra. This delightful couple warmly welcomed us into their beautiful home. Our bedroom with a canal view was extremely comfortable - a large bathroom with a walk-in shower, comfortable bed with memory foam mattress and pretty bed linen. In addition to the tea... More

I can't rate B & B Sandra highly enough. Firstly we couldn't afford to stay in one of the high end luxury hotels nor did we just want to be in a run of the mill hotel room plus we wanted to stay in a quieter area. I stumbled across this charming place on Google Earth...my Sister is called Sandra... More

Having just returned from 5 nights staying in the attic suite at B&B Sandra I can wholeheartedly confirm all the rave reviews this gem of a property has received here. Located in a quiet and “authentic” district, the accommodation is still extremely convenient for all the major sites, the railway station and the ferry dock for the outlying islands in... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
