Having picked this hotel on the back of Trip Advisor reviews and then subsequently saw a few more unfavourable ones I was a bit nervous about the hotel, particularly as it was for my husband's 40th. However, in all we really enjoyed the hotel and...More
My brother and I took my mother to Venice as a birthday present and chose the Foscari Palace based on its TripAdvisor reviews. We weren't let down. The location is excellent (right next to a vaporetto stop and a 10-15 minute walk from San Marco...More
My wife and I stayed at the Foscari Palace for 3 days as part of our honeymoon. I have to say it was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our tour through Italy. Breakfast was a delight each morning. My wife is...More
It had been my girlfriends dream to visit Venice and I had arranged it for a Christmas present. From our sunset water boat trip across the lagoon it was starting to be a trip of a lifetime. Arriving at the Foscari Palace it set it...More

Just a few notes to the above review:
- deluxe double rooms directly overlook the Grand Canal: obviously, the above client has booked a Superior Double Room and not a Deluxe one;

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.
