Cannaregio Sharing the same side of the Grand Canal with San Marco, Cannaregio district is one of the largest and the most populous of the city center. It stretches across the north-west of the city from Santa Lucia Railway Station almost to the Rialto bridge and it is delimited by the Lagoon, the Grand Canal, Castello and Saint Mark districts. Heart of Venice’s nightlife, Cannaregio is lively young and you can easily explore it on foot along the typical venetian streets called “campi” while enjoying its atmosphere. This district is considered one of the most beautiful and unspoiled part of Venice. Though Cannaregio has noble palaces built along the Grand Canal, the northern part of this district was, and still is, a typical working-class neighborhood scattered with many typical wine bars called “bacari” . Cannaregio is also famous for the presence of the oldest Jewish Quarter in Europe, with its synagogues which represent architectural highlights. Several striking buildings such as the churches of “Madonna dell'Orto”, “Santa Maria dei Miracoli” and the Ca' d'Oro are among the most beautiful and interesting tourist attractions in Venice. The splendid Labia Palace with Tiepolo's frescoes Palace, the Foundations of Ormesini, the Malibran theatre and Marco Polo’s House deserve a visit.
