This was definitely one of the highlights during our stay in Venice. Although we were OK and expecting the crazy crowd in main Venice, it was amazing to tour other islands and experience another side of Venice- a very calm and quiet side. Alessandro was...More

Alessandro was a great tour guide, and seeing Venice by boat is a worthwhile experience. We visited Burano and another island with a 15th century church and bell tower. We got out of the boat and explored both these islands. We did a three hour...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
