Dorsoduro, Venice
(4.9/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • When traveling to Venice, I would suggest that it takes into account the days of stay to visit some of the Islands are next. Dorsoduro, is one of these charming places. Say that to stay one or two nights and live it. Not to be missed.
