Ca’ Due Leoni is located in the Cannaregio District, the largest of the six districts of Venice. The Cannaregio District stretches from Santa Lucia Railway Station to San Marco District, bordering on Rialto Bridge, and Castello District, bordering on Campo San Giovanni e Paolo, where Venice Hospital is located. The main waterway of the district is the Cannaregio Canal, which flows the Grand Canal to the Lagoon. It is the second widest canal in Venice and the only one, with the Grand Canal, sailed by water buses, the urban public transportation service. The canal is crossed by two big bridges: Guglie Bridge and Tre Archi Bridge.
