A beautiful locale to the north of the city characterised by peaceful residential areas, the ancient Jewish Ghetto, long and wide ‘fondamente’ flanked by popular canal side restaurants and the Fondamente Nove – Venice’s northern waterfront overlooking the lagoon. An area offering delightful insights into an almost undiscovered Venice and of wonderful churches such as the dainty Santa Maria Dei Miracoli and the Gesuiti with its towering white façade, Cannaregio is also well served by shops and stores along its busy main artery between Venice’s Santa Lucia Railway station ‘Ferrovia’ in the west to Santi Apostoli in the east. Home to the Cannaregio Canal – one of the widest and liveliest ‘working’ canals in the city.
