An indifferent welcome but very kind and helpful breakfast hostess and house maids. We were somewhat alarmed having been told there was someone in the office 24 hours to find ourselves locked in on our last morning. We had got up early, 6.30...More
We stayed here at the end of June 2012 with temps of around 31-34 degrees celsius (which was very hot for us). It is only about 5 mins walk from the train station, and perhaps another 5 mins or so from the bus depot. The...More
I was a bit worried about this hostel/hotel, but we definitely lucked out with this choice. We had a large room on the 3rd floor (no elevator!), with a wash basin in the room. The room overlooked the street, which was very noisy until the...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
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.
