The Cannaregio district of Venice is one of the few parts of the city where Venetians still live in great numbers. Its numerous restaurants offer some of the best cuisine available in Venice at very reasonable prices. Especially in and around the Ghetto area of Cannaregio and the Fondamenta della Misericorda where you'll find a good selection of both regional and ethnic restaurants.
One of the last parts of the historic center of Venice to be developed, its canals are remarkably straight and well organized. From the Fondamenta Nuova you can enjoy sweeping views of the Northern Lagoon and the Islands of San Michele and Murano.
Cannaregio & the Jewish Ghetto is featured on our two-hour Grand Canal & Secret Venice Boat Tour as well as a Private walking tour of the Jewish Ghetto & Cannaregio.
A popular place for artists to have lived over the centuries, you can pass-by Tintoretto's house and visit his local parish church, the Madonna dell'Orto, which houses work by the great artist. The name of the church originates from a weeping statue found in a nearby garden.
