This was our second visit since our first in 2009. We are so pleased to say that the wonderful service levels that we had previously are now even better. So attentive, everyone knows your name and can’t do enough to make you feel comfortable and at home. Out fantastic ground floor canal view room has had a makeover recently, it...

After having spent a week in this hotel, I feel lucky with my choice for 3 reasons. The location of the hotel is perfect, especially if you come to Venice for the first time, cause you can be in other parts of the city on foot very quickly. The balcony of the hotel on Gran Canal is the best and...

This was our second time here. It's quite a splurge for us but so worth every cent. The location is all you could ever dream of for your Venice hotel. We stayed in a suite, 2 teenagers and parents, with a window opening onto the canal. It's just so exciting to lean out the window and nearly touch the water...

The owner, Matteo, met us at the door by name, and we were two hours later than we expected to be. The best part of this experience, well, it was all amazing, but sitting in the terrace with wine or caffe and watching the Venetians conduct their way of life is inexplicable. I was brought to tears just sitting there....

The Al Ponte Antico is the best hotel in Venice in which we have ever stayed. Overlooking the Grand Canal, the location is absolutely perfect and the service is excellent (the owner is great). Although hotels in Venice are pricy, this is quite expensive but worth it if your budget allows!

My partner planned a surprise trip to Venice for my birthday (and to propose!) and booked this wonderful hotel. From booking up until we left, everything was completely perfect. When he booked he received a detailed and friendly reply with many recommendations on how to make our trip to Venice that extra bit special, including tours and restaurants. The hotel...

Venice is a special city and the Hotel Al Ponte Antico is the icing on the cake. It’s the best hotel I’ve stayed in anywhere in the world. My wife and I chose it for our honeymoon after getting married in Rome and there are so many good points I will try to summarise them; We were met off the...

This hotel is by far one of the best hotel experiences I ever had. Our suite opened up onto the grand canal, I could look out my window and see the Rialto bridge. We waived at the gondoliers as the went past our window. Matteo and he staff knew you by your first name, and really wanted to get to...

We got a shared water taxi from the airport to the hotel dock, great way to arrive and to be greeted by Matteo, the very proud owner, and Oliver. Luggage taken, and a guided tour of this quintessentially Venetian hotel given by Matteo, such enthusiasm is rarely seen by an owner or their staff, prepare to be stunned by the...

One can't say enough about this wonderful establishment. We stayed on the ground floor, overlooking the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. The Palace itself was stunning - and Bruno was rightfully proud of it, showing us all the details which he had carefully restored. And he is an amazing chef - cooking a custom breakfast for us. It was...

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.
