our hotel was in this area, brilliant not too far to walk from the bus station, or water bus stops, but a place where the locals eat, lots of wonderful resturants at excellent prices, and only a 20 minute walk to st marks square.

Getting more vibrant but only with artisans and small, traditional restaurants. In the Jewish quarter and well worth the walk from Venice central.

We spend some time shopping in the streets of Cannareggio. It was nice to see a little better how everyday venetians live.

We were staying at the hotel Carlton on the Grande Canal and decided to look up an old friend who had an art studio in Venice. The ghetto was a short walk from the hotel, and for reference, an even shorted walk from the main train station. We passed by several very old synagogues and museums. The ghetto was very understated and not like we though it would be. Any commerce was strictly local with very little of the "tourist shops."

We wandered through the small streets and back alleys and finally reached the address which was Sestiere Cannaregio, 1152 - 30121 Venice. There we found The Studio of Michal Meron. I want to keep this non-commercial so I'll just mention that her original studio was in Old Jaffa Israel and she paints artworks of Jewish festivals. She and her friend, Alon Baker travel between Israel and Venice and I think spend most of their time in Venice.

We met Michal and had coffee and she gave us a good introduction to how to see the most of Venice. Clearly it is an easy city to walk if you just go casually until you get an idea of timings. The bridged over the canals, (except for the one over the Grand Canal) are low and have just a few steps each.

If you do go to Venice, an hour or two walking through the ghetto is work the time. If you stop by the Studio, please send regards from Steve in Dayton OH.

Excellent part of the city - lot of history, particularly in the ghetto. Great to get away from the masses near San Marco. Better value restaurants and bars. Stayed at Hotel carnival Palace in Cannaregio - strongly recommend it.
