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.
