Wide and bright apartment situated in the neighborhood of Fondamente Nuove, in the Sestiere of Cannaregio, one of the most popular and typical area of Venice, a strategic point of passage between the famous Rialto Bridge and the Island of Murano. Fondamenta Nuove boat stop is just outside the door, from where is possible to join the northen islands of Venice: Murano, Burano and Torcello.
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.
