La Giudecca, Venice
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Get away from the crowds and discover another side of Venice at La Giudecca, the city's largest island. Once an area of opulent palaces and gardens frequented by nobles, the island became largely industrial during the 20th century. Nowadays, many factories and shipyards have given way to luxury hotels and apartments. Still, its palpable working-class vibe makes up much of the island's appeal, drawing visitors with its more laid-back, community atmosphere. Explore the small alleys, artist's studios, and local shops, then grab a meal at one of the waterfront restaurants--which are much more affordable than those on the mainland. Access the island by vaporetto. Before you head to Venice, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Venice travel itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Venice has to offer, including La Giudecca.

  • Beautiful the viw of Saint Mark's and the Grand canal. But on the island no bar, no restaurant open for 12:00? I'm not sure why the ferry 14 euro

  • It is the largest island of Venice and is separated physically from the city but not visually. It is here that houses the legendary Hilton Molino Stucky. Lovely

  • Our Hilton hotel was located on Giudecca and it was the perfect way to see Venice. We were away from all the crowds and hawkers with quiet, intimate restaurants very nearby on the island.
