Simona, a native of Venice, was an absolutely great guide with perfect English; we learned about the history and culture of the city as well as the wines and foods we were sampling.

We had a great time with Elisabetta. She entertained us with stories about Venice and a thorough knowledge of the wines and cicchetti we tasted. She also answered countless questions from our group with patience and good humor. The tour was a highlight of our trip. Don't miss this one!

We went on 3 Urban Adventure tours in Venice. They are that good! Wonderful introduction to the city, culture, and food. We like the small group size and visits to local family run businesses. It takes you off the tourist path and gives you a taste of local life. It is a great way to get to know the city.... More

I wish we had booked this tour earlier in our stay. The host was funny, informative and knowledgeable. The bars were off the beaten track, the food was wide ranging from average to good but the wines ....... exceptional with no poor wine in any of the bars We highly recommend this trip.

This was one of the best tours we took while in Italy. We weren't sure quite what it would be but not only did we walk so much of Venice and parts that we didn't go before but we experienced food and places to eat and drink that we would never have gone into. It also helped educate us on... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
