Cannaregio

Venice, Italy

The Basics

Cannaregio, bookended by the Santa Lucia train station and the Rialto Bridge, lines most of Venice’s Grand Canal. Strada Nuova, the district’s busy main street, teems with souvenir shops and tourists; however, meander off into the side streets and canals and you'll soon find peaceful squares (piazzas) and churches.

The best way to explore Cannaregio is by linking up with a walking tour led by a professional guide—someone who knows both the famous monuments and the hidden gems. The biggest attraction here is the Jewish ghetto; tours will also include the area's key churches, Ca' d'Oro Palace, Campo San Leonardo and Campo dei Mori squares, and Ponte delle Guglie (a historic bridge). You can pair small-group and private tours with a gondola ride or a tour of Venice highlights, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and the Rialto Bridge.

Vanessa was a fabulous guide, sharing history and great food
We had a private tour with Vanessa and spent four hours with her. She gave us wonderful info about the history of the Jewish ghetto and the Cannaregio area, and tasted wonderful pizza, appetizers, fabulous dinner, gelato and lots of wine. A real highlight of our time in Venice. Highly recommended!

Venice: Jewish Ghetto & Cannaregio Area Food Tour: Pasta Wine Gelato and More!
Our guide, Maria Gemma, was a joy! Her knowledge of the area and foods, along with her willingness to answer our many questions made the whole experience wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed all the different dishes and were so full by the end of the dinner course that none of us could even consider ordering more than two scoops of gelato, even though three were offered! Every dish was delicious and Maria was a delight. We had a wonderful time, and would highly recommend the tour!

Silvia was passionate and quite knowledgeable (like she has a degree on this stuff). The tour had a little bit of everything. I love the food! This is an excellent way to get acquainted with Venetian cuisine. The recommendations of legit restaurants at the end was a nice touch too!
