I stayed in the Cannaregio region of Venice which is very central to the train station, Rialto bridge and St Marks square. Cannaregio is an old part of Venice which is very safe and has good, not expensive restaurants.

We walked over to Cannaregio from San Marco one afternoon & we were glad we did. A lovely area of Venezia - local markets, great choices in food, bustling lively feel. A must visit area of the main island!

Lots of lovely quiet streets when you want them and yet close to hustle and bustle if you want it too. Some great neighbourhood places to eat and drink.

A lots of shops, hotels, restaurants. there is plenty to see and plenty to try, starting from food. My wife an I went into one hotel, asking for help, to find our hotel and to use toilet. They were very helpful. There are many little restaurants and bars that we did not even have enough time to visit. Our hotel... More

Great area to just stroll and get lost in Venice. Soak in the atmosphere, hunt for hidden gems, stop for wine and look up and at statues dotted in buildings.

We walked through this afternoon one day while in Venice. Very nice with many restaurants with in and outdoor dining along the canal. You can watch the boats cruising up and down the canal as you walk along the streets. Browse the many shops lining the canal. We then came back to this area for dinner at a restaurant we'd... More

Yes, it's a bit further out, but serviced by vaporettos should it be further than you'd prefer and the walk to the square took us along a scenic and enjoyable rote of about 30 minutes..There are some fantastic restaurants in the area, many of which are cheaper in price, plus you get to see Venice from the perspective of those...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
