My mum and I stayed here for 3 nights. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who checked us in promptly, showed us to our room and also circled things on a map for us - all things I look for!
A challenge to locate initially, but very good location for exploring Venice. We took the Alilaguna water taxi from Marco Polo airport to the Fondamenta Nove stop. Going this route was a challenge. We recommend taking the bus to the Piazzale Roma station (6 Euros...More
A long way to walk from the station with bags (although vaporetti stop is close if you have a ticket), but good location for the sights. We had a very big room but the promised balcony didn't appear and we looked out onto a wall....More
a great small hotel, a little difficult to find, but in the most convinient place to see the remarkable Venice! It is just 50 metters away from the vaporetto` s stop. The owner is very polite and helpfull, the room, in which we stayed was...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.
Google Maps is pretty accurate. From the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop (not the Ca' For) walk the only direction possible to the major street, Strada Nova. Turn right, walk to the 2nd street on your left (maybe 40 yards), and... More
Google Maps is pretty accurate. From the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop (not the Ca' For) walk the only direction possible to the major street, Strada Nova. Turn right, walk to the 2nd street on your left (maybe 40 yards), and turn left there. It's about 20 yards down that street, on your right, a little hidden, like most things in Venice :-)
