A wonderful alternative to the more expensive places to stay in Venice proper, far away from the crowds and tourist vendors. Amazing views across the Giudecca Canal. Two minutes to Venice proper via the #2 vaporetto.

Just get out and walk around all of the canals - Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge, etc. Wander through the alleys. I would recommend taking a gondola ride or at least a water taxi to see it from the water. If you head over to Murano...More

This is the tranquil side of Venice. Calm, slow, pretty, artistic. Good to meander from one end to the other. Don’t expect loads of shops, just a quiet haven away from the crowds.

This is an island all to itself. It sits across from St. Mark’s and the Grand Canal. When you want to escape the crowds in Venice take a 3 minute vaporetto ride from St. Marks to Giudecca. Here you will find such peace and quiet....More

I had expected Giudecca to be more picturesque. The inland is jammed with residential apartments and the Venice-facing front had a selection of cafes and restaurants, but nothing that appealed enough to make us stop. We walked the width and length of the island, past...More

The main attraction of the Guidecca (apart from its smart hotels) is that it is away from the crowds and looks towards Venice-proper. You get fantastic views as you stroll along the fondamenta, stopping occasionally for a coffee or cichetti. Its certainly quiet and there's...More

From Venice you look onto this island but take the boat across to the the more unusual view of Venice from the other side. Even better spend a night or 2 at Bauer Hotels sister Hotel on Guidecca. (A more modern hotel compared to the...More

From here you get wonderful views of the silhouette of the heart of Venice. Giudecca is great to have a drink outside and see Venice in a calmer way out of the crowded city centre.

Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the
crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent
Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh,
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
