The Surounding Area :
Ca' dei Mori is in the Cannaregio neighbourhood, near Campo Sant' Alvise. The architectural composition of this pleasantly secluded area of the city makes it one of the quietest and most romantic places in all Venice. The stop of the vaporetto no. 42 for the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello and the no. 52 for the Venice Lido is just a few steps from the apartment. The lush shade of the park of Villa Groggia and the sports center with public swimming-pool is just across the street.
In the small square itself, you will find the Gothic church of Sant' Alvise, with two large paintings by Tiepolo
A 5 minute stroll along the canal will bring you to another stupendous example of Gothic architecture, the church of the Madonna dell'Orto, with three vast paintings by Jacopo Tintoretto.
The painter lived right here, on the Fondamenta dei Mori, across the canal from Palazzo Mastelli, also called Palazzo of the Camel from the charming relief on its fašade of a man leading a camel statues embedded in the wall, portraits of three mercantile brothers from the Morea - the so-called Mori - give the Campo its name.
Crossing the bridge of the Malvasia, you find yourself on the Fondamenta degli Ormesini: this long street beside the canal , fondamenta , has become a hot spot of Venetian night life in recent years. Here you will find a whole series of ethnic restaurants and, with its Venetian cuisine and live music, Paradiso Perduto is one of the most popular meeting places in the entire city.
Continuing our little tour in the direction of the railway station, we come to the bridge of the Ghetto Nuovo and enter the neighbourhood that in the year 1527 took in all the Jews of the city, and where you will find no less than five sixteenth-century synagogues.
Five minutes from the Ghetto, the historic Palazzo Vendramin Calergi now hosts the Casino, for those who wish to try their luck at the gaming table. From here, less than 10 minutes on the vaporetto will take you to the Rialto Bridge with its picturesque fish market, from which - following the Mercerie, heart of the Venetian shopping district - you may go on to Piazza San Marco.
