We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Pausania Hotel. The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating, which we really appreciated and which definitely helped our trip feel even more special. The hotel is comfortable and clean and has an excellent location, which is...More
We stayed at the Pausania for 3 nights in February. I could not imagine a better location. It is on a quiet canal in Dorsoduro - I would always prefer this area or San Polo rather than the noisy and crowded San Marco area. However...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows.

La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
