The area of Cannaregio is very venetian, all shops are in the vicinities: market, butcher, groceries, fish, bars, restaurants, banks, supermarket, pharmacies, all within a 200/400 meters radius. The apartment can accomodate up to 6 people.
Cannaregio is the northernmost of the six historic sestieri (districts) of Venice. It is the second largest sestiere by land area and the largest by population,
The Cannaregio Canal , which was the main route into the city until the construction of a railway link to the mainland, gave the district its name. Development began in the eleventh century as the area was drained and parallel canals were dredged. Although elegant palazzos were built facing the Grand Canal, the area grew primarily with working class housing and manufacturing. The history of the Ghetto of Venice is particuarly fascinating. When on March 29th, 1516 the Government of the Serenissima Repubblica issued special laws, the first Ghetto of Europe was instituted. It was an area where Jews were forced to live and which they could not leave from sunset to dawn. The area was closed by gates watched by guards and up till now the marks of the hinges are visible there. Jews were allowed to practice only some professions: they were doctors, because they were the most prepared and able to understand Arab writings, money lenders, because Catholic religion forbade this practice, merchants and "strazzarioli", ragsellers. However, Jews held successful positions in the city such as merchants, physicians, money lenders, and other trades. The Ghetto existed for more than two and a half centuries, until Napoleon conquered Venice and finally opened and eliminated every gate (1797): Jews were finally free to live in other areas of the city.
In the 19th century, civil engineers built a street named Strada Nuova through Cannaregio, and a railway bridge and road bridge were constructed to connect Venice directly to Mestre. Today, the areas of the district along the Grand Canal from the train station to the Rialto Bridge are packed with tourists, but the rest of Cannaregio is residential and relatively peaceful, with morning markets, neighborhood shops, and small cafés.
At home: internet, TV, DVD, high quality music. A fully functional, modern kitchen. A library. Complimentary bar. A nice, classy, relaxed athmosphere. Sunny the whole day, quiet at night. Pure enjoyment and relaxation!
Outside, a calm, true venetian area. All amenities and shops Quiet walks away from the beaten touristic path.

Upon arrival at the apartment we have to request the Venice Municipality tax (called "Tassa di Soggiorno"), newly established for private apartments, which is 1.5 eur per person per day, payable in cash. We will give you a separate receipt for this.
great authentic calm venetian area. Very calm, sunny apartment with pictiresque, sunny view. The best thing to do is to have breakfast in front of the window and see people and boats passing in front of you as you sip your mornings' espresso coffee. Please note we also offer France and Rome!

Venice is a very quiet city, with no background noise, so loud music is heard very far away. Guests are encouraged to be mindful of neighbours, especially before 8 AM and after 8 PM. In Venice there is a system for recycling paper/cardboard, glass, plastic, so guests are very strongly encouraged to dispose of garbage in the appropriate sites and time slots. Garbage is collected outside the door in the street before 8 AM.

I (Marc) have lived in Venice all my life, studied International Relations and currently working for the UN. I am managing the properties through my family - father Michel and mother Elisabeth are architects that studied in Venice from 1967 and never left it. We know the city inside out and are in love with it!
