Situated along a canal and with a huge square in front is San Travaso. The rear of the gondola makers shop faces the square. The church has 2 main entrances – canal side and square side. We heard music, went in and enjoyed an impromptu concert. The church was a peaceful and serene place that day – virtually empty. We... More

A Church honouring two Saints (Gervasius and Protasius, which slurred together somehow comes out as Trovaso in Venetian dialect), its well worth a visit for its double entrances (to keep feuding families apart) and its impressive interior, including a few Tintorettos, although the lace curtains on some windows strikes a bit of a discordant note. There's a decent wine shop... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
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 in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
