Guided by Walter you get to know the real Venice, of the beaten track and encounters with the rich history and real Ventians. Even in an overcrowded season he kows where to go for a nice, interesting and even sometimes quiet experience.

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
