Beautiful part of the city, away from the central area and the hordes of tourists and yet missing nothing. Easy 40min stroll yo San Marcy piazza. So quiet early morning you can easily imagine being here 200 years ago. Bellissimo 😍

Cannaregio is one of the few areas in Venice where you actually see locals. A vibrant neighbourhood full of traditional and not so traditional little shops, flavours and views. A must visit!

This is by the Rialto Bridge and that is amazing! Great pictures of all the boats, gondolas, and great cafes.

The Cannaregio Canal, which was the main route into the city until the construction of a railway link to the mainland, gave the district its name (Canal Regio is Italian for Royal Canal). Development began in the eleventh century as the area was drained and parallel canals were dredged.

We stayed in the Amadeus hotel herewhich is on the main drag towards San Marco. Go explore the region with new bars and restaurants frequented by locals and tourists alike. The area has been developed so very clean and easy to get around in, but take a map or GPS as its easy to get lost in the little streets.... More

A wonderful part of Venice where you can escape the majority of the crowds and discover so many wonderful sights, bars and restaurants - a really enjoyable part of our stay was wondering around the streets and canals as well as sitting down at a bar and enjoying drinks by the canal side and watching the world go by

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
