We booked the Foscari Palace expecting an exceptional Hotel. Having just returned and reflected on the overall stay, I still rate it as one of the most pleasurable stays that I have had in the last 30 years. OK so the staff did not prostrate...More
This hotel has surpassed expectations. Actually it looks much better, than on a site of hotel. A smell of fresh lilies, which filled our room (together with an atmosphere of the Grand Canal) will not transfer any photos. Superb!
We stayed at this hotel last year and I did not give it a good review. I didn't read the response of management or the couple from England until someone asked me for a recommendation of a hotel in Venice. I wish I could recommend...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.
