We stayed in this quiet, residential neighborhood for 5 nights while visiting Venice. We loved it! Great restaurants, bars, and shops in easy walking distance from our hotel. It was away from the crowded, touristy sections of Venice along the Grand Canal and St Mark's...More

Cannareggio is the northernmost of the six historic districts of the island, between the lagoon and the Grand Canal. It can be reached comfortably as soon as you get off the train.

Stayed in this neighbourhood and found it to be a lot less crowded than the main tourist spots. Really nice little cafes dotted around and a nice vibe

It is worthwhile if you have the time venturing off into this area. There are busy streets full of bustling shops and fruit and vegetable markets as well as quieter backwaters around Campo dei Mori and worth looking at the Mori statues and Tintoretto's house...More

Cannaregio is a bustling area of Venice with many good restaurants and attractions. You don't have to venture far North of Rialto to experience the charm of this section of the city.

Me and my partner loved staying here. We really felt it was an easy walk to all the tourist spots but quiet enough to enjoy having a drink and some food in the area.

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
