• About

    Canale di Cannaregio is one of the most important waterways in Venice. It connects the Grand Canal with the northern lagoon by crossing the western area of the Cannaregio district (sestiere), between Fondamenta di San Giobbe and Fondamenta di Cannaregio.



    Canale di Cannaregio has a minimum width of 22 meters as it passes under Ponte delle Guglie, a maximum width of 27 meters in front of the Ca’ Foscari University Campus, and is about 800 meters long. Due to its size, the canal allows crossing not only for small boats, but also for the ACTV waterbuses.



    Two bridges cross the canal – Ponte delle Guglie (Bridge of Spires), dating back to the 16th century, the only one in Venice adorned with pinnacles, and Ponte dei Tre Archi (Bridge of the Three Arches), the only example of a multi-arched bridge in the city.

    At the intersection with the Grand Canal, there is the Church of San Geremia e Santa Lucia, built starting with 1753. The two facades of the church were built in the second half of the 18th century, one facing Campo San Geremia, and the other overlooking the Cannaregio Canal.

    Next, on the western bank of the canal, there is Palazzo Labia, a Baroque palace built during the 17th and 18th centuries, notable for the beautiful frescoed ballroom painted by Giambattista Tiepolo.

    Other interesting palaces along the banks of the canal are Palazzo Priuli Venier Manfrin, Palazzo Savorgnan, Palazzo Bonfadini Vivante, Palazzo Testa, and Palazzo Surian Bellotto. Besides the palaces, along the banks of the Cannaregio Canal, we can find the Church of Santa Maria delle Penitenti and the Church of San Giobbe.

    At the entrance to the Grand Canal, placed on the western bank of the Cannaregio Canal, there is a statue depicting San Giovanni Nepomuceno, work of Giovanni Maria Morlaiter.



    From the Santa Lucia railway station, walk about 400 meters along the northern bank of the Grand Canal, and you will reach Ponte delle Guglie in a few minutes. The Cannaregio Canal is right in front of you.

    The closest vaporetto stop is Guglie, located about 100 meters away, on the waterbus Lines 4.1, 4.2, 5.1 and 5.2.
