Walking in Venice is a great thing to do. This time we walked everywhere, never even took a Vaporetto.
When you start at the Train Station you can walk along Rio Terà Lista di Spagna, then head on Rio Terà San Leonardo, which turns into...More
We visited the area as part of the walking tour.
This is a long crowded street with restaurants and fast food. It is aimed at tourists, as it is commercialised. Then again a lot of Venice is commercialised.
It actually made a change to get...More
Cool street with lots of shops restaurants. Definitely a touristy area. You'll also find the cheap gondola rides here. The gondola ride here is only 2 euros but it only takes you across the other side of the canal (very short distance). The gondola ride...More
Lying within sestiere Cannaregio, this long, crowded, street runs from Campo Santi Apostoli on the east to Campo della Maddalena to the west. It is lined with churches, shops, restaurants, bars, banks and a Traghetto stop. If the Grand Canal is the main street of...More
Although not staying in this area for the past 4 years, we still love taking the waterbus to the Railway Station, then eventually wandering along the Strada Nova in Cannaregio for ‘old times sake’ at least once. The main busy walkway is 10 metres wide/longest...More
Stretching from the Ponte degli Scalzi to the Ponte di Rialto it’s one of the main thoroughfares of Venice in the Cannaregio Sestieri and naturally contains a number of restaurants, shops, churches and cafes. Although one of the wider streets in Venice you still end...More
During several visits to Venice, we have walked the entire length of this long, main street a number of times. Our most recent visit to the city saw us again walk its entire length in both directions. It was a very hot Sunday and various...More
This one of the main streets on the north side of the canal. It has everything to offer, gelato, supermarket, pizza, restaurants, bar, coffee...you name it, even a McDonald's. Always busy with foot traffic and connects to other neighborhoods in Venice.
One of the wider less crowded streets in Venice . Our apartment was just off this street . Very convenient to all attractions. We travelled from Marco Polo airport by alilaguna to fundament nouve and walked to our apartment. Pick up a map and boat...More
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.
