A small and nice island with few or no tourists. There is only 4 water bus stations far away from San Marco. There are not so many sightseeings, except from the cathedral, but there is a very enjoyable place. 1-2 hours are enough for it.

This island is very different, less busy and very intersting to visit. Old docks, small channels and different views of the laguna.

This is a slice of Venice that must not be missed. Explore the back calle. Take an aperitif on the waterfront and soak in the rhythms of a way of life!

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.

if you want to escape the crowds of tourists then visit Guidecca for some peace and quiet. Many locals live here and there is the very imposing Hotel Hilton Molino at one end. Visit one of the few resturants for a lovely meal watching the...More

If you wish to see Venice by yourself, not accompanied by thousands of other visitors, come here! Tiny houses, courtyards, side gardens, kanals. And views! Easy to come by vaporetto, stop name Palanca /Giudecca. Right there is a Pizzeria (forgot name) with quite space inside,...More

Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the

Guidecca, points away from the others – part of
Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal.
Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and
factories to a quiet residential area with a
sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
