Dorsoduro, Venice

(4.9/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Explore the quieter side of the city in Dorsoduro, where a slice of "authentic Venice" can still be found. Cross the lovely Accademia Bridge from St. Mark’s Square and get lost in the comparatively peaceful streets of a neighborhood historically inhabited by artists and students. Surrounded by graffiti-filled streets, local restaurants, and Venetians going about their business, visit some art galleries, such as the Galleria dell’Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, housed within beautiful palace architecture. Arrange your visit to Dorsoduro and discover more family-friendly attractions in Venice using our Venice vacation trip planner.

  • We discovered this part of the city during a free walking tour. It is a very nice place and I totally recommend it. 
  • Dorsoduro is one of the neighborhoods of Venice that deserves to be known by tourists. Has shops, restaurants, and has better prices than the Center.

  • Quiet neighborhood, at least if you want to clear you a bit of the buzz. You have good places to eat, you can go to the Guggenheim that although it is a little one this well-equipped, the basilica of maria della salute, etc.
