What an amazing little spot- Giacomo and his father really make this place as comfortable as possible. Ample food and amenities available and just very homely. It is so convenient because there is a lovely little bar available right outside on the water where you...More
This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet spot on the edge of busy Venice and want to know what life is like for the locals. We had no trouble finding this cozy home which is within easy walking...More
My friend and I (two women) stayed at Giocomo's home B&B in early May. First the location is exactly perfect. In a real Venetian neighborhood on a quiet canal. Yet close to restaurants and night life one canal over. B&B Ai Mori is also an...More

We stayed at this B&B on our last night in Italy. It was a little hard to find, despite being only a 20 minute walk from the train station (make sure to google map the exact location beforehand as it is easy to get lost...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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
