Cannaregio Apartments in Venice for rent - Vacation Rentals

The Cannaregio district of Venice is one of the few parts of the city where Venetians still live in great numbers. Canneregio is home to the Santa Lucia railway station. It's the most northern district of Venice and the gateway to the city. Home to the beautiful (Madonna dell'Orto), Palace of Ca' d'Oro and Tintoretto’s masterpieces. The Ghetto's Jewish Museum (Museo Ebraico), introduces the history of the first Jewish ghetto in history. Many restaurants offer some of the best cuisine in Venice at reasonable prices.

The Cannaregio area is the second most extensive “sestiere” ( a sestiere is one of the six zones of Venice, the equivalent of the district the other cities have) after Castello. The quarter stands out at the north side of Canal Grande, stretching over from the train station to the Santa Croce’s sestiere, by which is connected through the bridges respectively named Ponte degli Scalzi and Ponte della Costituzione.

The Canale di Cannaregio is the only other canal, besides the Gran Canal, to have its waters crossed by the vaporetti ( the boats that constitute the means of transportation in Venice). The origin of the district’s name is controversial. Some think that it is due to the presence in the area of wide beds of reeds (in italian the words is “canneti” at the plural) while other suppose the name derives from a little canal (canalicus in latin) that flowed into the Cannaregio’s canal.

The whole sestiere was considered very popular in the past ages. Up to the seventies Cannaregio was considered as not prestigious as it is today. Many companies had set up here their warehouses and plants. After some measures of urban renovation and environmental improvement the area has been completely renovated. Nowadays is silent, peacefull and residential.
