Easy to get to via the bridge or try taking a traghetto across the grand canal for 2 euros - much more fun. The area is quieter than the main part of Venice and a little bit more spacious. Well worth strolling round the area and enjoying the artists, galleries and of course churches.

As long as u can climb 2 steep flights of stairs this 2BR flat is ideally located away from tourists, and close to vaporetto, many lovely cafés (San Barnaba) and cheaper shops (Billa supermarket) than in the San Marco area. There are usually 3 reasons why people prefer an apartment to a hotel: space, laundry and kitchen. Take note that... More

Really enjoyed walking through this neighborhood. Very charming and the Zattere was a nice stroll on a sunny day. Enjoyed watching a few artists draw and paint near the Accademia Bridge.

After you've seen the sights, find this quiet neighborhood and stroll through the back streets and alleys. It is beautiful, quaint and quiet. Great place to pick up a gondola is by the Accademia because the gondoliers get off the grand canal quickly and take you through all the back canals. Lovely.

Loved this area with the best restaurants and cafés. Don't miss La Bitta, Oniga or Gromms for gelato, all in the same block.

Great museums and shops, excellent restaurant and a quiet Venice that is just a bridge away from the touristic San Marco. Great area to stay with lovely hotels. We even had the pleasure of being taken on a walking tour with Augusto who showed us the Venice enjoyed by the Venitians!

Great area that is a 15 to 20 min walk from the chaos of San Marco and Rialto. Studenty area with good bars and restaurants at reasonable prices. Lively but without the crowds. Next time we come to Venice we'll aim to stay here. You feel like you're in an Italian city here, rather than just another foreign tourist

after a busy day dealing with the crowds of Venice. This is a great place to come back to relax and see Venice from the local perspective.
