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.

We stayed three nights at the guesthouse and found it an ideal location to explore the city. It’s not far from Marcuola Vaporetto and just a 15 minutes walk from Rialto Bridge. The bed and room were spacious enough, just the bathroom was a little small, but it was clean and

The place is comfy. It's a good location and it doesn't break the bank. Breakfast is 5 euro's per person per day and is worth it to me because all of the things you get would cost more than that if you went out to get it. They also are good with delivering it on time. They

Gentile Grazia, le double room si dividono tra primo e secondo piano. Ovviamente al secondo piano sono più luminose perchè a Venezia gli edifici sono molto ravvicinati. Siamo a disposizione per cercare di accontentarla in base alle sue indicazioni. Ci indichi la dat adi arrivo così potremo prenderci cura del suo soggiorno. A presto!
