Tour Description
Venice's Cannaregio neighborhood remains a respite away from the crowds of St. Mark's and home to much of Venice's resident population. Largely avoided by tourists, this charming neighborhood provides an excellent opportunity to experience the magic of Venice without jostling for breath with large groups. During this three-hour Cannaregio tour, we'll spend equal time looking at art, architecture, and local character, providing you with an insider's sense of both modern and historical Venice.

Cannaregio Tour

A truly varied walk, this is the perfect choice for those looking to mix art, history, and lifestyle. Local bars, artisan shops, and small grocery stores remain intertwined with baroque facades and Tintoretto-decorated churches, giving Cannaregio a unique flavor. While the sites and route vary according to the group's and guide's interests, the tour may discuss  the Gesuiti, Madonna dell'Orto, and Sant'Alvise churches, as well as the artistic heritage of the district, kept alive today through artisan shops and artists studios.

Does this tour include the Jewish Ghetto?
While this walk may or may not touch on some aspects of the Jewish Ghetto, it is not a walk specifically focused on Jewish Venice. For this type of walk, which includes a visit to the Synagogue, please take a look at our Jewish Ghetto tour. Looking to see Venice's major sites? Try our Venice City Tour of St. Mark's and Rialto.

Will we have time for shopping on the tour?
The goal of this tour is the provide participants with an overview of the neighborhood, its history and current life. We may pop into a few shops, however, you may prefer to return to these after the tour so you have more time to shop at your leisure.

What if it’s raining?
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your guide will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.

A very good insight into the history and modern life in the neighborhood.
Nadia is amazing!! She has a wonderful depth of knowledge of the historical art of Venice. Without her informative tour, we would have not appreciated the spectacular art history of Venice. And she tailored our tour to include sights according to our interests. This was my second Context Tour with Nadia, and I was so happy to see her again.
Matteo's content and personal history were an excellent contribution to this us an opportunity to understand the development of the waterways, bridges, local community, history. Everything was excellent and integral to the tour.
