“Jewish area”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Visited the Gheto square, now a permanent memorial to the Jewish community lost in WW2. There is also a Kosher hotel here. Well worth the effort.

“Its where the locals go, which is usually a good sign!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The Ghetto Nuovo was very atmospheric and a tribute to all the Venetian Jews who died in the wars, and the memorative plaques very atmospheric, and lovely to see children playing football and skipping on the square. Some lovely restaurants, 40 Labaron, Rioba and Il Migliore.

“Cannaregio - great area”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

We loved staying here as its off the tourist route but close enough to get to all the touristy places. Also its a quieter part of the canal and one gets to see the locals shopping and doing their thing. We enjoyed the market son the Strada Nuovo.

“Peace and quiet”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

It you are going to Venice to soak up the architecture and history, you will get lost in your thoughts walking through this part of Venice that is well off the beaten path. You'll only find dedicated travelers and local Venetians as you wander the streets of this district... and maybe a few ghosts along the way.
