Our hotel is in a quiet corner where the Rio di Ca' Dolce and Rio di Santa Fosca canals meet, in the Cannaregio district in the north-west of the city. Cannaregio is one of the more populous and typical areas in Venice. We are near the Campo Santi Apostoli and the Ca' d’Oro, one of the most beautiful palaces on the Grand Canal, built between 1424 and 1440 by order of the patrician Marino Contarini as a gift for the woman he loved.
Its name, Golden House, is due to the gold ornamentation on its Decorated Gothic façade.
The Rialto Bridge and the colourful market where Venetians buy fruit, vegetables and exquisite Adriatic fish is only five minutes walk away. Ten minutes on foot through the main shopping streets takes you to St Mark’s Square to admire all its precious sights, or to the Fondamenta Nuove, departure point for water buses and ferries to the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.
