Northen Venice – Cannaregio

Northen Venice - Cannaregio

It might seem that in Venice there is no quiet, non-touristic area left. But Cannaregio still remains an undisturbed Venetian sestiere. It hides real masterpieces of Venetian gothic architecture such as the church of Madonna dell’Orto and the Ca’ d’Oro, as well as the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a treasure-house of Renaissance marble, and the huge, overpowering Gesuiti Church. The area is home to many legends and mysteries. It’s the place where Tintoretto and Titian lived and worked and where the first Jewish Ghetto in the world was established. The tour starts at the Railway Station and finishes not far from St. Mark’s Square.

Theatres, Music And Fantasy

Theatres, Music And Fantasy

Venice has always been famous for her Carnival. She has always been a city of music and theatre, attracting many famous singers and composers from abroad, such as Hasse and Monteverdi, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. Entertainment was brought to the streets of the city in the 15th and 16th centuries by a theatrical association called the Compagnie della Calza. Venice was like one huge masked ball where tickets for the many entertainments could be bought on the streets from comic clowns. The visitor will see the sites where Venice’s theatres once stood and learn about the lively theatrical scene that flourished between the 16th and 18th centuries. Most of the tour is concentrated in the sestiere of San Marco where the famous La Fenice opera house still attracts large audiences. We’ll discover Venice’s music and theatre world, the history of the Carnival and Casanova’s theatrical life as well.
