We wanted to see the quiet section of Venice and thus ventured to the island of La Giudecca by water bus / Vaporetto & it was easy. The area does exude a special character of its own without the hustle & bustle of San Marco....More
Giudecca is a little island in Venetian lagoon where where you can be away from the crowds and find cheaper accommodation.
Although you have to constantly take the Vaporetto to San Marco.
We found the island is good to visit to view the skyline of...More
a peaceful place for those tired of the crowded main island's noise. easy and calm lifeflow, if you have time - just switch off your GPS, turn from the seafront to any arch and enjoy the inner life of Giudecca ))
a lot of small...More
Best place to sit outside a bar and drink your afternoon spritz, watching the sunset and looking across the water to San Marco. If a huge cruise liner sails past it will astound you just how huge these ships are!
We looked at the reviews and introduction about Giudecca Island while we were in Venice, we didn't find too many information. We decided to go there for a quick visit anyway. However, we were fascinated with its beauty, wonderful quiet walking paths, watching towers and...More
An interesting experience. We stayed on giudecca mostly because the hotel that I wanted had excellent reviews, and happened to be there. We arrived via a very expensive water taxi in the early evening, and to be quite honest, were completely underwhelmed. We dropped our...More
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
A lovely peaceful island. Perfect for relaxing at the end of a l9ng day on your feet. There's lots of lanes to stroll down and things to find and just near the Palante water bus pontoon is a delightful restaurant, Tratorria Dom Or I, friendly,...More
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
harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.

In January and February it‘s quite cool in the mornings around 5-6 degrees Centigrade. During daytime around 8-10, but often the sun is shining so you can even sit on outside for a drink. Our hotel wasn‘t on the Giudecca, so I couldn‘t tell, surely there are restaurants around, but probably Giudecca is more lifely in the warm seasons from late march to late September. Anyways, Venice is beautiful on its Winters because of the light and you surely will enjoy.

There is only ONE WAY to dress when you travel ... LIKE AN ONION ! You wear slightly lighter clothes underneath & warmer clothes over it like a rain type jacket. That way you can undress some of the hot clothes when it is hot & you don't get caught short when the weather turns cold. We were there in November & May. Neither months were terribly cold. Dress like I said & you will be fine in most weather & rain. Remember Europe is COLD OUTSIDE in winter BUT HOT INSIDE THE HOTELS & TRANSPORT as most are heated.
In Countries like SOUTH AFRICA who do not use double glazing & much artificial heat you have to dress WARMLY INSIDE & OUT in the evening & early morning especially. In Venice the HOTELS are HOT inside so you will need to take off warm jackets.

The vaporetto service is the only way, and it's really easy. Just go to the nearest stop as if it's a bus stop. It's not expensive. We bought a 2 day pass for around 15 euro, which lets you travel as much as you like. There are different tickets for length of time you want, eg, one day, week.
Giudecca was nice and quiet (and a bit cheaper) to stay on. The vaporetto were regular, take about 5 minutes to get to San Marco stop, and the view across to St Mark's Square from Giudecca Canal was worthwhile, we think.
