I really enjoyed this area because it allows you to get away from the crowds while giving you great views of mainland Venice across the bigger canal. It is also very nice for sunset.

Quiet neighborhood on a side street, yet easy walk to nightlife in Campo Santa Margherita. Short walk to Vaporretto.

Away from the crowds of St Marks, we love this area of Venice. Be sure to try the cichettis at Gia Schiava and walk along the side of the canal to see the only remaining gondola workshop.

This is a nice little district of venice on the south side of the grand canal. It feels like money is had by those who are lucky enough to live here with grand houses and lovely clean little canals and side streets. It is a pleasant walk after the hustle and bustle of other busier areas of town.

This was a quieter neighborhood to stay in, with some excellent bacari (for cicchetti and wine) and a chance to take part in Venetian nightlife on the Campo Santa Margherita with hundreds of your closest Venetian friends. Note: Don't stay near the Campo Santa Margherita on Saturday night if you want peace and quiet.

We have only been here for a few hours but we can already tell a difference in comparison to all of the areas we see the highest tourist traffic in. We were able to walk 10 minutes from the Duomo to our neighborhood. After about 5 minutes the traffic lightened up significantly. As soon as we crossed the bridge in... More

This is such a nice area to get lost in. There's always something to see, even it's just a residential street it's so surreal to think some people really live here. Beautiful.

Dorsoduro is not too touristy but still within easy reach of the main tourist spots (St Marks and Rialto). There are lots of narrow allies with small shops and appealing restaurants. Wonderful small canals and atmospheric bridges and buildings. A charming area with some delightful quiet squares but still well located to get to all parts of Venice.

A quiet area with smaller hotels, and lower prices compared to S. Marco. You can easily walk to the center of the city (just take a map with you, while narrow alleys are somewhat confusing), go just over the Accademia bridge.
