We undertook the tour of the canals by kayak here and absolutely loved it. My wife and I were in a double kayak and we were guided by Francesco (I think his name was, apologies to the guy if that's wrong!).
Unfortunately the building had...More
My wife and I did this. What a lot of fun exploring the small canals of Venice. We went out into the lagoon north of Venice as well. Our guide was good, watching out for us so we didn’t get run over by all the...More
We loved the tour we did yesterday with Real Venetian kayak. The guide was very knowledgeable and super friendly. You get a really different perspective from the kayak than when walking around.
The kayaking itself doesn’t require too much physical ability so suitable for almost...More

We just got back from a nighttime kayak tour. We left around 30 minutes before sunset. There were only three in our group which made it fun and manageable. Truth be told, I am not athletic at all, I am a middle-aged overweight woman who...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.
