This is a lovely neighborhood to see and to stroll around, at leisure. This way one can stop off or take side streets and alleys that are bound to lead to interesting finds.

Love it here! Lots of good value restaurants and very pleasant squares and bridges. Not as crowded as more central parts but still lots to see and do.

This was a great area of Venice. It was quiet and safe. There were a lot of good restaurants and shops off the beaten track which was lovely.

I loved that we were away from the San Marco area with the throngs of tourists. I felt this was closer to real life in Venice.

It's worth crossing the canal to come to the Dorsoduro area where you can visit some interesting museums and galleries and look across to San Marco and other islands that are magnificent views from the tip.

Dorsoduro is one of the six main regions of Venezia (sestieri) and home to one of the largest campos (Campo San Margherita) and of course magnificent churches and cafes.

Crossing the Academia bridge one enters another distinct part of Venice. The further you walk away from the bridge the quieter it becomes. Pay a visit to the Museum of Modern Art which, if nothing else is thought provoking then wander towards the Giudecca and stroll along the waterfront

This neighborhood in Venice is the best neighborhood to get lost in! Make sure you have a good map though! Plenty of beautiful plazas (campos) to sit and have a drink of wine, prosecco or ice cream.
