The north-eastern part of Venice’s Cannaregio Sestiere or quarter is particularly attractive with its three parallel straight canals, the setting for churches, palaces and minor houses alternating with gardens hidden by ancient brick walls.
It is a more open, airy and luminous part of Venice than other parts of the city.
One can stroll along these canals in peace and tranquillity, enjoying the beauty of the city without the crowds found in the main thoroughfares. Even boat traffic is less on these canals and much less noisy.
In this area there are still many shops, open air markets frequented by locals and delightful restaurants and café’s with waterside tables and live music in summer.
In only a few minutes you find the fruit and vegetable stalls of the open market at San Leonardo while the nearest supermarket (open on Sundays) is only five minutes away.
The Venetian Ghetto lies across the canal where children play in the tree lined square and visits can be made to the Jewish Museum and the historic synagogues
