This is the quintessential Venetian neighborhood, “ben servito,” which means you can find anything from supermarkets, fresh markets, and shops for vino “al sfuso” and finer fare, to butchers to pasticcerie, from clothing and shoe to hardware stores, to bars and bàcari to notions and pharmacies. This area of the Cannaregio sestiere also boasts some of the best and most reasonably options for dining in Venice, with a host of cafes and eateries in the city. Of course, you’ll receive our insider’s list on arrival!
Alilaguna Arancio line offers an easy 20-minute, €14 boat ride from the airport to this extraordinarily tranquil neighbourhood (what you expect elsewhere in Venice, but rarely get). Just around the corner from Tintoretto’s original home and church, the luminous Madonna dell’Orto, and the Jewish Ghetto. This cozy, airy apartment is handy to the Orto vaporetto stop serving Lines 4 and 5, and also to San Marcuola and the Grand Canal. Saunter to the San Sofia traghetto to be ferried to the Rialto Markets and all of San Polo, or hop the Ca d’Oro vaporetto instead. For the actively inclined, just down the fondamenta Gasparini is the starting point for Row Venice Venetian rowing lessons.
