This is a gorgeous hotel hidden behind a door down a little laneway just off the grand canal. We were upgraded upon arrival to one of the two rooms directly facing the grand canal. This room was wonderful with the best views in the world...More
The Abbazia Deluxe was such a wonderful surprise. Right by the train station, hiding behind a very non-descript door, is the most gorgeous little boutique hotel (it's so NOT a B&B in the trad sense). We were greeted by the very welcoming staff who offered...More
We stayed for 2 nights at the begiining of August having stayed at the Abbazia Hotel a couple of years before. The Delux version is even better than the Abbazia Hotel.

We chose this hotel for its close location to the rail and bus station for a one night stay before our cruise. What a find! It is a chic little boutique hotel with only 5 rooms round the corner to its main hotel the Abbazia....More
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.
