DISTRICT OF CANNAREGIO, VENICE’S HISTORIC CENTRE

Venice’s Ghetto and the Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto

After Castello, Cannaregio is the largest and most densely populated district in Venice.  It begins in the part opposite the canal of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, with the bridges as boundaries, and ends at the railway station of Santa Lucia. There are two different explanations for the name: the first is that the name derives from Canal Regio, which once served as the access point to the city from the mainland; the second explanation is that the name derives from Canna Regio, a reeded area. It is crossed by the “Strada Nova”, an artery which links the railway station to the Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco.
Places to visit include Venice’s ancient Ghetto and the Jewish Museum, which are full of history and tradition; the stupendous Palazzo Ca’ d’Oro on the Grand Canal which houses the outstanding Franchetti art gallery; and the Chiesa della Madonna dell’Orto with works by Tintoretto and Titian.
If you enjoy gambling, there is the oldest casino in the world, Ca’Vendramin, an elegant and picturesque building on the Grand Canal.
