This is long waterfront promenade that is great for the evening stroll (passagiata). It is located in the sestiere Dorsoduro. It is a very peaceful place far away from the crowds of the center city. The island of Giudecca is just across from the Zattere....More

The Zattere (the Rafts) is a long and awesome road along the Giudecca canal and is the southern limit of proper Venice. Starting from the cruise ships terminal and going all the way to Punta della Dogana it is one of the most pleasant walks...More

From the San Basilica boat station, you can walk, past Zattere, all the way to the entrance of the Grand Canal, and gaze across to the Doge's Palace and Palladio's masterpiece. On a lovely late afternoon in sunny September, we walked back again as well!...More

The Zattere are a long stretch of walking bank in front of the large expanse of water called the Giudecca canal. It is a chic part of town which goes from Venice harbour to the custom house opposite Saint Marks square. It is a fantastic...More

The Zattere is a series of wide pavements in Dorsodoro, with views across the Giudecca Canal to La Giudecca. Only a short stroll from the hustle and bustle of the Ponte dell'Accadedemia, this area is much quieter and has a much more laid back feel...More
