A very good quiet part of Venice with a lot of galleries, exhibitions and historical buildings. A great place to feel the spirit of the city.

It is very peaceful walking around here. You can find lots of little places to eat and drink, and in a much more relaxed atmosphere than in San Marco.

Quieter, more sophisticated than across the Grand canal but charming and atmospheric with glorious views. Little squares, lovely shops and museums plus great restaurants.

This island is close to the main island but not and that is what makes it wonderful. Lots of restaurants and great views from everywhere.

Just a great area to spend multiple nights in Venice. Access to the vaporettos on the Grand Canal at the Salute stop and good views. To the south is the evening promenade for locals with a view of the island of Giudecca.

Very cute and charming area of the city with less tourists and a glimpse of how the locals live. Here you can find amazing churches, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and I as well encountered so far the best pizza in my life. Highly recommended!

Perfect place to stay in an apartment. Lots of local life with very picturesque canals and local boats. Lots to see from our balcony. Fishermen coming back first thing with their small catch for lunch, builders delivering roof tiles, lads unloading stock for local shops,...More

We stayed in the Dorsoduro for three nights. It was an excellent choice. We felt more like a local staying with this part of Venice. Great restaurants and shops are everywhere. Very peaceful.

Loved walking around to Dorsoduro far from the maddening crowds. Plenty of art galleries and other spaces to duck into.

A stones throw from San Marco but completely different feel. Narrow streets and canals open up into lively vibrant squares with cafes, bars and restaurants. Wind your way through the area getting "lost". Peer into churches, walk with the locals and enjoy a slightly slower...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Fly into Marco Polo Airport, the main airport in Venice. You can take a water bus but for €110 you can get your own private water taxi to Dorsoduro, probably the Academia bridge would be closest. Having travelled on both... More

No need for private taxis, unless you have mobility issues or you have tourist aversion (which makes sense with so many people). It is easy to use the Alilaguna pass for the vaporetti that will take you everywhere for as... More
