San Marco, Rialto, Marco Polo's house and Jewish ghetto !!
Cannaregio is the second Largest district in Venice. The hustle around the station is a misleading introduction to Cannaregio, because in this "Sestiere" it's very easy to get well away from the tourist crowds.
The pleasures of Cannaregio are generally more a matter of atmosphere than of specific sights, but you shouldn't leave Venice without seeing the GHETTO, the first area in the world to bear that name. There are some special, very important buildings such as campo Madonna dell'Orto , Gesuiti church - a Baroque creation ( to get inside , there is a fee pay 1euro) Marco Polo's house and property. The many shops, restaurants and cafes have preserved a genuine, old-time Venetian atmosphere. End in St. Mark's square.
As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have.

Great tour! It was perfect for my family. As a native to Venice he not only provided the history but helped us understand much more the culture. Also he was a fun and very interactive guide. I highly recommend this tour!
