The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

We love walking in this area of the city so peaceful, and you are actually in local venetian life.

The fondamenta is at the side of this pretty quiet busy canal, the shops are local shops, ie bakery, hardware shops, ice cream shops, plumbers etc but then you find the odd artist's shop either clothing or art studio. The architecture along here is fascinating, you find some really interesting finds

After walking jumping off the waterbus and walking through the ghetto area we are ready to rest our feet and a mid morning glass of wine - vino vero is a great place to do this. Sit ate at the side of the miscorderia canal with outside seating at either a bar or restaurant , a table in the sun is the order of the day.

Just along is a great bookshop which resist, many books in english and a tea house - where you can also buy cookies, chocolate and fresh cheese. Slightly further along is a great favourite of ours OSTERIA DA RIOBA, where we love to dine at night with the locals - we have known Tomaso the owner for many years.

After a lovely drink and rest, we wandered along to the very end of this fondamenta to find a most amazing little campo and fascinating church, and head off towards rialto

We stayed in an AirBNB, not far from this street, and walked along here at many times of the day. a couple of nice bars and restaurants. A nice quiet street away from the usual hubbub of the city.

We enjoyed a lovely stroll along the canal from start to finish. There are different shops and bars and cafes with scenic views and great photo opportunities. One end of the canal leads into the lagoon and there are some benches for you to rest and watch the boats go by.

After walking through the Getto, and crossing an old stone bridge you are on this interesting fondamenta.

Situated at the side of the side of the Rio della Misericordia canal, which sometimes has the occasional small boat going by, it is a brilliant place to slowly wander on a lovely sunny day

This is an area for local venetians and not many tourists. Tere are so many interesting things to see, small local shops, the odd wine bar, there is a great shop selling costumes to hire for the carnival which is interesting to go inside. Very unusual very old buildings - this fondamenta is totally fascinating.

A perfect location even in August. Very easy to get away from the crowds and explore the galleries and back streets. Excellent local pizza and pasta so didn’t need to overspend. Would definitely return.

Along the Fondamenta, you immerse yourself in an architectural context rich in nuances.
The buildings, with their styles ranging from Gothic to Renaissance, bear witness to the different eras that have left their mark on Venice.
The decorated windows, wrought iron balconies, colorful facades, small taverns and artisans' workshops give a unique character to this part of the city.
While other places are mostly crowded, a certain degree of tranquility is preserved here.
