Small piazzas with local families of all ages gathered at the end of each day to play or chat or have a drink with friends. Not as crowded as other areas in Venice. Pleasant local restaurants.

Such an active area with various things to do. Personally to me, I think it's one of the best. Such great foods with ethnic diversity. It's a hopping area and great shops

Venice is very touristy, so we wanted to get away from St. Mark's square and see something of the real Venice where Venetians live. Cannaregio is such a district and very quickly you can leave the crowds behind. Small campos and quiet picturesque canals, it...More

Il you want to have a glimpse of the Venice of the locals and not of the tourists, go for a walk in the early morning or early evening in the quarter of Cannareggio. Small bars for morning cappuccino or evening spritz and local restaurants...More

This neighborhood is so charming and devoid of any tourist fuss. We stayed here for a week. The restaurants are definitely better than in more central areas, it feels like home, even though there is a bit action in the evening.

We walked all the way along along a canal from the Ghetto toward the Rialto Bridge and St Marks' square last week. It was sheer bliss to escape the crowds in the latter and what treat to find such a beautiful, peaceful area where the...More

Do yourself a favor. Prepay for the Venice water bus unlimited pass before you arrive to the city. Hopefully you stay somewhere in the Cannaregio district like Hotel Amadeus, so you can get to Venice, drop off your luggage and head right back to the...More

We stayed in an apartment in the Jewish Ghetto area of Cannargio and loved it! Away from the busier tourist area of St. Marks, there are local coffee shops, and sweet stops with the local favorite Spritz drinks. We liked the local grocery market in...More

Thank Jeffrey P
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

There are cheaper public transport options but I like to splash out and spend the €110 on a private transfer. Leaves from the airport right to your hotel door and it's the fastest way.
