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

After looking at a few different companies we settled on this as the 100 minute tour seemed the perfect length. The tour was great, taking us to the edge of Venice, down some small canals and even across the grand canal. Our guide was very...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
