This was my first trip to Venice and if this hotel is a representation of the quality of hotels in the $200 a night range I will stay across the bridge next time. The ambiance is just "old". The only other postive things are that...More
We arrived at La Forcola for a 3 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and the rooms were generously sized. Breakfast was simple with cereals and pastries but this was exactly what was needed to get you going in a morning....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.
