A tranquil haven after the mania of Piazza San Marco and Rialto bridge with quite ginnells, wrought iron bridges and a few bars and restaurants, art studios and jewellers, not to mention Peggy Gugenhem Museum and the Chiesa di Salute with Titians and Tintorettos in...More

I spent a few hours strolling from the crowds over the Accadamia bridge to Dorsodura.Such a contrast to the rest of bustling Venice

We found this area by signing up for a mask decorating workshop at Ca’ Macana, a first rate authentic mask making business. Four of us were at the shop for 2 hours. Really fun and educational. The Dorsoduro neighborhood is quaint with hidden shops everywhere....More

Really like Dorsoduro...near enough to all the attractions but far from the madding crowd. Lots of lovely little shops, café/bars and just get lost down all the little alleys and watch all the gondolas while standing on one of the many little bridges!

Depending on where you stay, dorsoduro is still close to San Marco and all the tourist stops but is much quieter and less crowded.

We love it here. Not as touristy as San Marco or as crowded. Lovely little shops and wonderful restaurants. We are staying in an apt down a little alley. Feels like we are in the real Venice without the glitz of some parts.

We stayed in an apartment for 9 days and loved our quiet hideaway from some of the noisier and busier areas. Highly recommend renting an apt in this lovely district of Venice

We stayed at the Hotel American Denisen which is just steps from the Accaedmia bridge and vaporetto stop. During most of the time, it is a quiet neighborhood which can help relieve some of the stress that throngs of cruise ship visitors often bring to...More

Over two days we spent about 8 hours walking around this area of Venice. The churches are beautiful and there is lots to see. We both wore good/comfortable walking shoes: essential! There are some quiet and beautiful Campi (squares) to sit in and relax as...More

Lovely arty part of Venice. Loved walking past the old buildings and little canals. Lots of little shops to browse in as well as tiny bars where one can have a spritza or coffee.

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

Dorsoduro is safe and very pleasant, but not the cheapest. I guess Castello or Giudecca are. They are less central. Venice is a safe place except for pickpocketing. The pickpockets are very skillful, especially on... More
