We were traveling by train so the location was excellent. At first, as we walked down the alley way and entered the somewhat outdated lobby/reception and I was a bit skeptical about the quality of the rooms. However, our double was really nice and the...More
I'm glad we booked Hotel Florida since it was just one corner away from Venice Santa Lucia train station. I had my wife and two kids with me and we did not want to drag our luggages all over Venice just to get to the...More

The weekend we stayed was quite warm. As soon as we walked in the hotel smelled like alley way. The people were very friendly, and the room was clean, but the room smelled and our windows opened to a roof top alley where empty kegs...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.
