Palazzo Vendramin - The Location

15th century canal-side palace

near the Church of Santa Fosca in the heart of Cannaregio

Standing imposingly on the Fondamenta de Ca’ Vendramin, between the Rio di Santa Fosca and Rio del Trapolin canals well hidden from the tourist footfall yet with an excellent variety of local amenities very close at hand, these impressive apartments enjoy the best of both worlds.

Strolling the Sestiere

The Location

Palazzo Vendramin is located near the 17th century Church of Santa Fosca in the charming Sestiere of Cannaregio to the north of the city.

Enviably placed in a tranquil spot away from the hustle and bustle yet benefitting from a wide variety of local amenities for everyday living and good transport links for easy travel around the city and beyond, these impressive apartments enjoy the best of both worlds.

A much-loved district with a traditional old-world charm and once the home of world-renowned Venetian painters Tintoretto and Titian, Cannaregio is characterised by peaceful residential areas, a host of historic landmarks including the spectacular fairy tale Ca’ d’Oro and the ancient Jewish Ghetto, plus long and wide ‘fondamente’ including the Fondamente Nove – Venice’s northern waterfront overlooking the waters of the lagoon towards the distant peaks of the Dolomite mountains.

An area offering delightful insights into an almost undiscovered Venice and of wonderful churches, including the dainty Santa Maria dei Miracoli and the Gesuiti with its towering white façade and statues of the Apostles, Cannaregio is well served by an excellent selection of restaurants, ‘bacari’ and other dining options and boasts comprehensive shopping facilities along its busy main artery running from the Santa Lucia Railway Station ‘Ferrovia’ in the west to Santi Apostoli in the east.

Regarded by many as one of the most authentic and characteristically Venetian districts in which to reside, the sestiere is also home to the Cannaregio Canal – one of the widest and liveliest ‘working’ canals in the city.
