First Time in Venice

Good day,

My husband and I are staying at the Molino Stucky Hilton in Venice on Giudecca. We are looking for some suggestions of things to do near by. Restaurants you would recommend? Cafes? Things to see in this area?

Thanks for any help.

Really there is not a lot on the Giudecca, but the Hotel runs a shuttle which takes you across the Giudecca Canal to the Zattere, there is a lot more going on over there,

The Hilton Molino Stucky is on Giudecca island, not in the main city of Vencie so you will have to take either a water bus or the much more expensive private watere taxi or the Hilton's own launch when it is running across the very wide Giudecca Canal to Venice.

On Giudecca itself there are a couple of interesting churches - Redentore and Zitelle - plus a very small number of reasonable but not outstanding restaurants

Thank you for your response.

I am at least hoping for some quaint cafes for breakfast on Giudecca. The Hilton charges $50 for theirs. Coffee and pastries are breakfast enough for me!

We were also hoping for a couple of cute places to have wine etc (close to the hotel, but not IN THE HOTEL!). It sounds like, there may be some of these places on Giudecca? Within walking distance?

Thanks again.

It sounds like you really need to buy and read a guide book on Venice. It will tell you about things to do, restaurants, and cafes; and will make it much easier for you to enjoy your time in this magic city.

Well definitely try to stop in for a glass of wine at what has been long considered a local watering hole...Cantina do Mori. It is located in the area of San Polo near the Rialto market...It is rustic but typical italian and a great spot for some wine and cicchetti (little snacks). This is definitely off the beaten path and a chance to experience the real side of Venice.

I would not call Do Mori off the beaten track it is very near the Rialto,

It may be near Rialto; however, for someone that does not know it's there, it can be hard to miss. It's not necessarily a tourist trap.
