|Klara on bridge near Campo dell` Abbazia|
- The northernmost of the city's neighborhoods. Cannaregio , extends in a wide arc from the train station from the 20th century in the west to one of the oldest fourth of Venice in the east. North coast facing the island in the lagoon, while to the south bounded by the upper part of Sestiere Canal Grande .
- The name of the fourth comes from the Italian word canne, meaning reed or reeds, which grow here many centuries ago, or maybe the " Canal Regio "( Royal Canal ) - the former name of today's Canale di Cannaregio . This waterway was the entrance to Venice before the establishment of rail links with the mainland.
|SANTA MARIA DEI MIRACOLI|
- More than a third of the urban population lives in Cannaregio . For the most part to the unpolluted district, broken wide channels, with streets that are characterized by small shops, bars and simple handicraft workshop. One of the nicest and most remote parts of the city is located on the north, near the church of Madonna dell 'Orto , and around the Campo dei Mori .
- Tourism is concentrate by two main road - that is Lista di Spagna and wide Strada Nuova, both are good known direction who lead from train station to Rialto. Little far away from that direction there is oldest getho on the world. Although, jewish community today live all around town, but this is historic most fascination square of Cannaregio.
- Anyone could adore Venice on looks alone, but in Cannaregio you`ll fall for its personality. Located between extroverted San Marco and introverted Santa Croce, earthy Castello and saintly San Polo, Cannaregio combines all of its neighbours` personality quirks. Day trippers race along broad Strada Nova en route from the train to the Rialto, while just a few streets over, footsteps echo along moody stretches of Fondamenta della Misericordia without a T-shirt kiosk in sight.
VENICE JEWISH GHETTO
- The Jewish Ghetto is a tribute to the tough, tolerant community of Cannaregio, who stuck it out on these malarial swamps; both top-floor synagogues and Gothic churches are an integral part of the scenery. At night, students from nearby Ca`Foscari University and visitors who are loath to leave converge on local osterie (restaurant - bar) for drinks, gossip and some of Venice`s least-known and best-priced dinners.

- Napoleon had excellent taste in plunder, as this palace museum reveals. But until Baron Franchetti donated Ca`d`Oro to Venice as an art museum (along with his personal art collection), the paintings, reliefs and sculpture taken from Veneto churches during Napoleon`s Italy conquest had to be warehoused at Milan`s Brera museum.
- Collection highlights include Andrea Mantegna`s magnificent altarpiece of a teeth-bearing, blood-dripping, arrow-riddled St Sebastian; Pietro Lombardo`s tender Madonna and Child in glistening Carrara marble; and a faded but still sensuous nude on a fragment of a fresco by Giorgione. The palace itself is a masterwork of palazzo (palace or mansion) architecture, with its Gothic Grand Canal balcony and marble-mosaic ground floor, even though it was long ago stripped of the polychrome marble and goldleaf cladding that gave it its name (House of Gold).

HOTELS NEAR CA`D`ORO:
CAMPO DEL GHETTO NUOVO
- Look around: this lopsided plaza that serves as a community playground was once the unofficial centre of Venice`s shipping empire. Jews were originally only allowed to live in Giudecca, but Venice saw the benefit in keeping its bankers, textile merchants and artisans close at hand, and in 1385 allowed Armenian, Jewish, Turkish and Greek communities to reside in Venice proper.
|CAMPO DEL GHETTO NUOVO|
- Hundreds of Spanish Jews found refuge from the Inquisition here in 1589, but a plaque on the wall recalls the dark days of 5 December 1943 and 17 August 1944, when 289 Venetian Jews were rounded up and deported to Nazi concentration camps. The Jewish retirement home along the northeast side of the square is home to a few survivors. Legend has it that a ghostly rabbi who was spotted in various locations around the square after the WWII deportations mysteriously reppeared in the 1990s. ALISON BING

CHIESA DELLA MADONNA DELL`ORTO
- One of Venice`s best-kept secrets is things elegantly spare brick Gothic cathedral dedicated to ferrymen, merchants and travellers (hey, that`s you), which was the object of Tintoretto`s attention for decades. No wonder: he lived just over the footbridge from here.
- Offsetting his stormy Last Judgment masterpiece in the apse is his golden-tinged Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple, where an assembly of angels, saints and mere mortals crane their necks to watch her ascend these staggering heights, pointing her out as a shining example to their children. Tintoretto and his family are buried in the corner chapel. ALISON BING

HOTELS NEAR CHIESA DELLA MADONNA DELL`ORTO:
CHIESA DI SANTA MARIA DEI MIRACOLI
- There goes the neighbourhood. When Nicolo di Pietro`s Madonna icon started miraculously weeping in its outdoor shrine in 1480, crowd control became impossible in this cramped corner of Cannaregio. Out of deference to her holiness - and possibly to disperse foot-traffic jams - the neighbours took up a collection to build a chapel to house the painting and its ecstatic admirers. But there was another miracle in store for the neighbourhood: the church itself. In his design, Pietro Lombardo completely ignored the then popular Gothic style in favour of a simpler, more classical approach that would come to be known as Renaissance architecture.
SANTA MARIA DEI MIRACOLI
- This jewel box of a church is clad inside and out with glistening marble and, in a prime example of Renaissance humanism, Pier Maria Pennacchi filled each of the 50 wooden ceiling panels with a bright-eyed portrait of a saint or prophet dressed as a Venetian. What started as a modest chapel became a monument to community, and a true icon of Venetian ingenuity. ALISON BING
