CANNAREGIO

One of the loveliest and most authentic neighborhoods in Venice, Cannaregio is home to Venice’s Jewish Ghetto, the train station of Santa Lucia… and to the majority of Venice’s actual residents.
Stay here if: You want to be off-the-beaten-path and away from thecrowds; you want to experience Venice “like a local”; you’re trying to save money on accommodation; you want to get to Burano and Murano easily from where you’re staying (the express ferry to both islands, the #12, leaves from the Fondamente Nuova stop in Cannaregio). 
Don’t stay here if: Your dream of Venice includes waking up and seeing the Rialto Bridge or St. Mark’s Basilica from your window (they’re each a 15-minute walk away); you know you’ll spend most of your time at Venice’s biggest sights, but you don’t want to walk much or take public transportation.

CASTELLO

Dating back to the 13th century, Castello is the largest of thesestieri, as well as one of the most local and authentic in Venice. Here’s where to see old women gossiping between windows and children kicking soccer balls in piazzas.
Stay here if: You want to experience Venice “like a local” (although the western part, near St. Mark’s, is just as touristy as San Marco); if you want to save on accommodation; if you’re here for the Biennale; if you want to go to Burano and Murano if you want to get to Burano and Murano easily from where you’re staying (the express ferry to both islands, the #12, leaves from the Fondamenta Nuova stop near northern Castello).
Don’t stay here if: Your dream of Venice includes waking up and seeing the Rialto Bridge or St. Mark’s Basilica from your window (they’re each a 10- to 20-minute walk away); if you know you’ll spend most of your time at Venice’s biggest sights, but you don’t want to walk much or take public transportation.

dorsoduro

Dorsoduro has the best of both worlds: a tranquil daytime atmosphere and one of the most happening nightlife areas, charming back streets and some of the city’s most interesting sights. If you want to stay in the area’s more charming quarter, make sure to stay in the area south of Campo Santa Margherita.
Stay here if: You’re looking for cheaper accommodation; you want to be away from the tourists and the crowds; it’s important to you to stay within walking distance of the port or Piazzale Roma.
Don’t stay here if: You don’t want to walk or take much public transportation; you have limited time in Venice, plan to spend most of it at St. Mark’s and the Rialto Bridge, and want to stay near that area.

SANTA CROCE

Santa Croce is home to some of Venice’s major transport hubs, including the main port and Piazzale Roma. It’s also the least touristy sestiere in Venice. 
Stay here if: You’re looking for cheaper accommodation; you want to be away from the tourists and the crowds; it’s important to you to stay within walking distance of the port or Piazzale Roma.
Don’t stay here if: You don’t want to walk or take much public transportation; you have limited time in Venice, plan to spend most of it at St. Mark’s and the Rialto Bridge, and want to stay near that area.

San Marco

At one point or another, every traveler to Venice winds up in San Marco. This small sestiere boasts many of Venice’s main sights—which means that, while beautiful, it’s also now one of the most crowded, touristic, and expensive neighborhoods in Venice.
Stay here if: You’ve always dreamed of walking out of your hotel and right onto the Rialto Bridge; mobility is an issue for you and you’re planning on spending most of your time in Venice at the sights here; you want to do some serious designer shopping; crowds, especially between March and October, don’t bother you; you don’t mind spending a lot on food and drink. 
Don’t stay here if: You want to be able to eat authentic, well-priced meals near where you’re staying; if you’re staying in an apartment and planning on cooking for yourself (it’s difficult to find markets or grocery stores here); the idea of fighting through crowds to get down a street isn’t your idea of a vacation; your idea of Venice is artisanal shops, not souvenir and designer stores; you’re hoping to see more Venetians than tourists; you’re on a budget.

san polo

The smallest sestiere in Venice, San Polo is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Today, it’s also one of the liveliest and most touristic districts, thanks both to its central location and to having big-ticket sights like the Rialto Bridge.
Stay here if: You’ll be cooking at home (one of Venice’s best fish markets is here); you’re a bit of a foodie (some of Venice’s best restaurants are here); you want to be somewhat off the beaten path; you want to experience a local’s Venice; you’re interested in Venice’s nightlife.
Don’t stay here if: You want complete tranquility (this sestiere does get crowded, especially on the lane running from the Accademia to Rialto Bridge); you don’t want to walk or take much public transport.
