The Cannaregio District is the second of the city by size, and could become, thanks to its charm, your favorite district.
The docks to the north overlook the islands of the lagoon, while to the south the district is closed by the wide curve of the Grand Canal.
The name probably derives from the reeds that grew luxuriant until the end of 1500 along the banks of the Cannaregio Canal, which at the time were simple muddy beaches.
This watercourse constituted the main entrance to Venezia on the side of the mainland before the railway connection was built.
It is an intact area, divided by wide canals, crossed by narrow streets and characterized by small shops, gardens and hidden gardens, simple bars, craft shops and churches rich in art treasures.
