This nice first floor apartment is located in the quarter of Castello, a truly Venetian area, off the beaten tourist tracks, ideal for visiting the most important sights of Venice such as S. Marco's place that are only a few minutes away. Or you can wander off and discover the less known monuments of Venice such as the beautiful church of S. Francesco della Vigna or the Scuola Grande degli Schiavoni with the important paintings of Carpaccio.
Cannaregio is Venice's second largest sestiere, stretching across the north-west of the city from the station almost to the Rialto bridge. The name has two possible origins: it may derive from Canal Regio, i.e. the main canal for communicating with the mainland or else it may refer to the extensive reed beds found there in the past. On this sestiere, special attention will be paed to number of palaces, dating from Byzantine period to the 18C, that are to be found in this sestiere together with the large 16C quarter of the Ghetto, and the churches and monasteries, which are numerous in this area too. We shall also encounter another of Venice's major town-planning schemes, the Strada Nuova, linking the city centre around Rialto with the railway station. Not many tourists in this sestiere, it is ordinary Venetians live - lots of good food shops, market area.
