This area on the south side of the Grand Canal is more peaceful than the north side, but it’s just as charming! We recommend it for a leisurely stroll away from the hustle and bustle!

The city is small, but this area is really at the center of everything. Beautiful to walk it at night. It has the perfect combination of tourism and people from the city, although it is certainly very touristy.

I found this part of Venice (especially parallel to the Canal Grande) quaint and intriguing. A slower pace of life within the back streets of a mainly residential area. I enjoyed the arty street where the Peggy Guggenheim Museum is. I enjoyed looking through a...More

Stayed here in mid January. Just enough people to make it interesting, lots of local people about, very friendly. It has vaporetto stops at Zattere and Ponte d'Accademie on the Grand Canal. Campo San Marco is only about 20 minutes walk. Prices here, are on...More

This is a mostly residential neighborhood with real stores for residents. Tucked away are some delightful restaurants. About a 10 minute walk from Piazza San Marco

Not the charming neighborhoods you can find in other areas, but good for first trips to Venice because it's the site of the Academia Bridge, one of the few bridges over the Grand Canal. Area contains the Peggy Gugenheim Museum and the Academia Museum.

As a day tripper, most tourists will not have the time to wander over to Dorsoduro. However, if you have the chance to stay longer than a day, take the bridge or the water taxi to this amazing district of Venice. Walk the streets, cross...More

In spite of its being a favourite with many it is not crowded nor touristy. Round every corner another lovely view. Lots of wonderful shops, markets, bars and restaurants.

The Dorsoduro with its lively Campo Santo Marghareta, Campo San Banaba, its numerous osterias, the Venice University buildings, the formidable Fondamenta Zattere is for me often THE highlight on a visit to Venice.

There is no ugly part of Venice (well, maybe Tronchetto and its bus and parking sections), and Dorsoduro is no exception. You'll have plenty of tourist company around the Accademia and along the Grand Canal, and at the Guggenheim Collection, and at the stunningly gorgeous...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Hi again, another thought for you. The water taxi is VERY fast so if you don't like boat rides, think twice as the ride is quite a 'thrill'!
