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.

  • Dorsoduro is to recommend accommodation in Venice. Calm and manageable. Nice places to stay and drink a cheap Sprizz.

  • Out of the confusion more stinging as well the Accademia bridge, allows visits to wonderful artistic attractions (Cà Rezzonico, Gallerie dell'Accademia, the Guggenheim Foundation, widow, etc.) as well as the streets and squares of Venice and equally to private fields full of history and details (lo Squero, a Rio terà, bookshops, art galleries), chiesa della Salute and punta della Dogana , to have an amazing view on the Grand Canal and St Mark's, being able to then go back outside, on Rafts jokes from the Sun (or rain, the allure is unchanged).

  • Meanwhile, forgive the boredom but if you ask me to Venice voting is automatically good, whatever the ravine, then if we speak of Dorsoduro, where do you see the truest part of Venice and Venetians with its cicchetti ... well ... what to say .... Fantastic!
