Once upon a time in Venice: across the centuries in Cannaregio

Can a single district be a summary of all Venetian history, from the origins of Venice to the present time? This itinerary starts in Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo – where we introduce two important historic institutions: hospices and scuole grandi – and it will then lead you through the sestiere of Cannaregio. A fascinating path between palazzi, artisans’ workshops and boatyards, where you will be able to feel the genuine Venetian atmosphere and taste its cuisine in a local tavern.

Additional costs: Entrance to the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo (€ 2.5); to the church of Madonna dell’Orto (€ 3).
Notes: Depending on how much time we have, it may be possible to extend the visit to the nearby Jewish Ghetto (LINK Itinerary 5).
