Cannaregio district is the widest sestiere of Venice and also the most populated. It is crossed by the Canale di Cannaregio, the only one in the historic center that along with the Grand Canal, is served by vaporettos.
In Cannaregio you will find Santa Lucia Train station and the main street called Strada Nova, which connects the station to the Rialto area. There is also the Jewish Ghetto, an area in which the Jewish community lived in the Napoleonic era.
The main shopping streets are Strada Nova and Lista di Spagna, which is also frequented by young people for bars and restuarants.
Do not miss the local area and restaurants in Cannaregio which is located in the northern part of the sestiere, more precisely between the Jewish Ghetto and the Fondamenta Nuove. To date, the sestiere fully represents one of the entertainment venues of Venice.
