"Canneregio - Strada Nuova." Ghetto Tip by Jerelis
Ghetto, Venice: 28 reviews and 56 photos
On our way back to the Grand Canal we passed-by Tintoretto's house, which houses work by this popular artist. We also visited his local parish church, the Madonna dell'Orta. The name of the church originates from a weeping statue found in a nearby garden. After that we walked our way a bit back to the station to admire Campo Ghetto Nuovo and its Sinagoga.
Finally we made it to Strada Nuova, which is one of Venice's major town-planning schemes, linking the city centre around Rialto with the railway station. Our conclusion about Cannaregio is that on this sestiere, special attention must be paid to the number of palaces, dating from the Byzantine period to the 18th century, that are to be found together with large 16th century quater of the Ghetto, and the churches and monasteries, which are numerous in this area too.
Sestiere of Cannaregio.
North western of Piazza San Marco ? a 12 minute walk.
