I think this has to be my fav neighborhood on the island! Not only is it quieter - with more locals than tourists - but the prices are also sooooo much better. We stopped by Tony's Hamburgers (I think it was called) and was able...More

Wandering around the streets and alleys of Cannaregio is a delight. The alleys open out into little "campi", small piazze where there might be a single market stall beautifully laden with flowers or vegetables or fish. Away from the main attractions, this area is remarkably...More

You are right in between the train station and the city downtown. Best shops and restaurants that are not as crowded as others closer to the Piazza.

Step out of the throngs of tourists in Venice and stop for a cold drink and chechetis (tapas). More relaxed, less busy and super friendly.

Cannaregio contains both the Jewish ghetto and a wide and straight street with many stores. It includes many residential areas where you may still find restaurants and shops with more Venetians than tourists. The train station and the Scalzi Bridge are in Cannaregio, which is...More

The neighborhood located between the train station and the touristic center. Good places to eat, but also the Ghetto and lots of beautiful places to walk around.

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

Hi. I’ve been in Venice two months ago and also stayed in Cannaregio . The best thing of staying there is that you are 5m on foot from the Fondamenta nove, where you can board in a boat that can take you to the islands. I’ve... More

One more thought. For Christmas eve it may be very advisable to reserve a dinner in a restaurant (and see through internet if it is open). Otherwise it may happen that you will not find any place available. All can be fully... More

Hi Thanks for your question. Venice is not cheap but there are ways to save money. Walk everywhere as it is compact city and you miss a lot by going by boat. Eat in the smaller tucked away restaurants. Use the buses... More
