In the secluded neighbourhood of Cannaregio, off the beaten track yet near the main sights of the city, palazzo Longo was built at the end of the 15th century to be the home of a member of the Venetian Senate. Despite its changing hands many times since then, the building has managed to keep its grandeur and unique atmosphere.
Its charm and the convenient location – a few minutes away the Lagoon opens onto the islands of Murano and San Michele providing a gorgeous view –, at a walking distance from many art masterpieces and historic places, make a stay at palazzo Longo an unforgettable experience, the ideal holiday combining culture and relax with gourmet pleasures: do not miss the traditional dishes offered in the restaurants and trattorie of Cannaregio, which serve very good Venetian cuisine at reasonable prices.

Palazzo Longo looks onto fondamenta della Misericordia, close to the small harbour of Sacca della Misericordia, which offers a sweeping view of the north lagoon. Here is one of the few areas in Venice that have managed to keep a peaceful atmoshere even when alleys and squares are packed with tourists.
A few steps, through the romantic Fondamenta della Sensa and the famous campo dei Mori with the statues of the Moors from which it takes its name, will lead you to one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Venice, the church of Madonna dell'Orto: it is well worth a visit for its paintings, some of which where painted by Tintoretto, who lived nearby.
Fondamenta della Misericordia continues west on fondamenta degli Ormesini: cross the iron bridge and reach the campo del Ghetto nuovo, in the heart of the ancient Jewish settlement, with its five sinagogues or scholae that are now open to visitors as part of the Jewish Museum.
Some may wish to try their fortune at Ca’ Vendramin Calergi, seat of Casinò municipale, a mere 5 minutes away. In the immediate surroundings the celebrated Ca’ d’Oro with its gallery awaits art lovers.
From campo Santa Sofia, again at a walking distance, a gondola will take you to the opposite bank of the Grand Canal with the busy Rialto market and the Gothic revival Pescheria, the portico under which fresh fish is sold.
If you choose to walk along through campo dei santi Apostoli you will reach the church di Santa Maria dei Miracoli, an outstanding instance of early Venetian Renaissance, and campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo, with its superb Gothic church, the Scuola Grande di San Marco and the equestrian statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni, Verrocchio's masterpiece.
