I was so pleased to see this sightseeing tour available - whilst it was a little pricy (but there again Venice is expensive anyhow) it was well worth the fee. If this type of tour isn't available in other major tourist cities, it certainly should...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
