Venice & the Veneto - Cannaregio (PDF Chapter)
Cannaregio doesn’t have San Marco’s sex appeal, Dorsoduro’s youth or Castello’s work-ing-class attitude. Rather, it’s a well-balanced residential neighbourhood of unpretentious, patri-cian palazzi, picturesque squares and quiet canals, with some of the city’s best local bars, res-taurants and shops.
- explore The Ghetto, the historic island home/prison of Venice’s Jewish community, which offered refuge from the Inquisition and sparked a Renaissance in thought
- discover Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Miracoli, the marble-clad church that marked a turning point in the city’s ecclesiastical architecture
- pay respects to the genius of Tintoretto at his parish church and burial place, Chiesa della Madonna dell’Orto, a simple structure filled with the master’s works
- restaurants & bars
