Lots of atmosphere, restaurants, museums, without the crowds and the tourist craziness of St Marks and the Rialto.

I really enjoyed this part of the city and made Accademia my main spot. The shopping, eating and wandering are just sensational here.

Get away from Saint Mark's Square as soon as possible and investigate the dog leg shaped island that is the other side of the Grand Canal. Lovely little streets, great restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.

Dosoduro has lots of great stuff to see, it is also an absolute maze. Even with a good map, we got lost for 2 or 3 hours. Thank goodness for google maps. However, we did get to see canals, and alley ways and homes and small local businesses that we would not have seen if we had stuck to only... More

Really location, near good restaurants, cafes and boutique shops. Nice place to wander around and get lost in. Also, good location for walking to main tourist attractions, but far away enough from them to not pay such high tourist prices.

We rented an apartment here and absolutely loved it. You're not far from the center of everything but far enough away to be out of the heavy touristy area.

While here, you must take in the "Galleria dell'Accademia". Even if you are not into artwork or sculptures, this place will amaze you, to say the least.

Just wander the lanes, enjoy a cappuccino or a Spritz on one of the Campi and pretend to be a Venetian.
