This was as advertised. Our guide, Lu, did a great job. She not only gave a great tour, but also provided a lot of helpful ideas about what to do in Venice. She spoke excellent English and took time to answer questions.

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
