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.

Foscari Palace is situated on the Grand Canal adjacent to Ca d'Oro. It has its own private jetty with gondolas moored outside. The location is perfect as there are many good restaurants locally and the busy Strada Nova is just at the back. You are also next the Ca d'Oro

The hotel was right on the Grand Canal. We could look out our windows and see the canal, gondolas, water taxi's and buses, and there was even a rooftop deck for great photos. The included breakfast was very nice. The lady at the desk recommended restaurants for us. It was a

This was our first stop on our little Italian trip. The hotel itself is really easy to get too, just off the main street running through Venice. This location means its also really good for finding your way round, and to get to the main places. The room was lovely, and very

Can you enjoy breakfast with the view of the canal? Is there a seating area to enjoy the canal view?
There are two small tables on the front deck where you could carry your plates out to but the dining room does not face the canal. The front deck is also the entrance to the hotel on the canal so it’s a little tight but do able.

We visited in August so hot but AC worked fine. Special occasion so we booked delux rooms with canal view so more expensive. Large beds and some carpets. Would recommend the evening meal with the canal boat trip, well worth the money.

What is the best and cheapest way to get from the train station to the hotel?
We have walked before but it’s quite a long way especially silly with heavy luggage. It is best to take the water bus and get off at the Ca’D’Oro stop, at the end of the walkway, turn right, walk a very short way to the next square and the hotel will be on the left as you walk towards the canal.

What mode of transportation did you use to get from airport to hotel?
Hi , on arriving I arrived by train. On departing I took the water shuttle from the hotel which is about 100m away to the bus stop and took the prepaid shuttle bus to the Airport . I believe this is the cheapest option
