The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Fabulous small shop
Feb 2017 • Couples
This is a beautiful shop shop. Over the Ponte della bGuglie bridge, and a few yards on Rio Terra San Leonardo, this gorgeous shop is just on the right selling masks and hand made puppets - I collect very special puppets from different countries.

The gentleman in the shop was very friendly and helpful, so I bought the Plague Doctor and he is dressed in beautifut rich clothes - expensive but well worth it
