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.

Just walking by, saw the church doors and went in...admission charge for the opportunity to see, as in many of the churches, great works of art and architecture. Bought a ticket that was good for three days to see a number of the churches. Seeing two of them more than made it worth the cost.
A small and cozy hotel to stay in Venice. Staff is friendly and conversant in many languages. We four reached quite late at the rail terminus and were guided to the hotel nicely.
Warm reception awaited us though no welcome drinks were offered on account of our late arrival probably.
The hotel is reasonably close to the water taxi station....
Truly breathtaking, irrelevant of religious affiliation. The architecture and artwork are phenomenal, especially when considering the age, and the details in the carvings are amazing. There is no charge to enter, simply a request for donation, if you would like to. I would highly recommend stepping inside, if only briefly, as it will impress.
"Gorgeous Church Near the Santa Lucia Railway Station"

This beautiful church is located near the Santa Lucia Railway Station. Of note, there are lots of beautiful statues and art that make up the decor within the church. The Ecstasy of St. Teresa statue is located near the front left of the altar. It is simply stunning for lack of a better word. St. Teresa is also depicted in...
We spent the morning walking around Venice and came across this is little ice cream parlour. We bought 2 ice cream cones with 2 scoops per cone at 3 euros each. They were so tasty and creamy and at 6 euros excellent value.
We enjoyed an excellent meal an La Colombina. The menu was filled with wonderful, fresh, ingredients, and a great selection. It also offered English translation without trouble. The wine menu was also very robust with a selection to fit most needs.
The atmosphere was quiet and small, so reservations are a smart choice. The service was wonderful, and lacked in...
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at hotel Palazzo Abadessa! It’s located in a quiet neighborhood away from main tourist traffic areas yet within walking distance to all the main attractions. Getting here from the train station and in general around Venice is very easy taking a vaporetto (water bus) and the ca d oro stop is steps away from...
"A really lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff."
reviewed 2 days ago by Brett R
A really lovely hotel in a wonderful, atmospheric part of Venice just off the main tourist run but close enough.
The hotel staff couldn’t do enough to help us. We stayed for two nights and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
By the way, the bar is great and the barman really knows his stuff.
Loved this hotel!! We arrived from the train station and was at the hotel in minutes. So easy to find. It’s also easy to get to bus station for the airport bus. We walked around the neighbourhood - close to Jewish ghetto and lots of lovely bars/restaurants. We felt really safe In Neighbourhood. Also easy to get boat to all...
Once again our visit to Venice was made all the more memorable by our stay in the Arcadia boutique hotel. Wonderful location, beautiful clean rooms, most helpful staff, excellent breakfast. Great advice on where to visit and also where to dine. Made us most welcome, we’ll be back.
Very comfortable, clean, good breakfast buffet, convenient location, helpful staff. Rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. Not noisy at night but several good restaurants very nearby. Water taxi is right outside the front door.
