It was wonderful to sail past La Giudecca while on the cruise ship and also when we were on a water taxi that took us around La Giudecca to see the island from the other side.

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

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

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
