We stayed in an apartment in Cannaregio and it gave us a different experience of Venice. This is the area where local people live and work and go about their daily life, being friendly to tourists like us invading their world. This area is convenient to vaporetto stops, S. Marcuola is 5 minutes walk from the heart of Cannaregio and will grant you access to all the stops on the grand canal and beyond. The Jewish quarter of Venice is located here and while it seems scary at first to be wandering down tight alleyways, our experience was that the area is quite safe and free from antisocial behaviour. The restaurants in the area are a good bit cheaper than the tourist traps near St. Mark's Square and the quality is good for the most part. Well worth a visit.
