Where are we
Conveniently accessible by ferry and just a few hundred meters from the main attractions from the capital of Venice, Ca’ de la Fonte di Venezia has 9 rooms recently renovated with all amenities and furnished with a minimalist taste.
In the centre and convenient to all services, Ca’ de la Fonte is located in a district not crowded by tourists like the other streets of Venice. The Cannaregio district is the one where you can admire the authentic city with its corners and its thousand canals.
Ca’ de la Fonte is located in this charming place, which houses the ghetto that gave its name to all the Jewish districts of the world. From “geto” to “gheto” to ghetto as we know it today, as the Jews themselves called it.
In Cannaregio, besides Ca’ de la Fonte and its holiday apartments in the centre of Venice, you can find the narrowest street in the city; calle Varisco, with its 53 centimetres, challenges all tourists to pass through it.
Not far from Ca’ de la Fonte there is also an unusual statue, depicting “el vecio pien de peo” that you can admire on the facade of Cà Bembo – Doldù.
In the Cannaregio district you will find one of the only two bridges in Venice without a parapet. It is the Ponte de Chiodo and allows access to a private house.
