Standing on the bridge and looking across to the Basilica della Salute (hopefully I have got this right) is timeless. One can imagine how it was centuries ago... Priceless.
Not only gives you access to another of my favorites sestiere (San Polo), as Dorsoduro it's everything you can wish for... Amazing views from each famous point. The view to the St marks Square it's amazing. Then you go walking I the direction of the Accademia Bridge Ns each little bridge and calle impresses you. Don't stop at L'Accademia, keep... More
It's one of my favourite memories of our stay, it's such a quiet peaceful spot, and we wandered up and down beautiful little canals. We got off at Salute and just followed our feet! We found a wonderful little street with great little shops and bought loads of lovely handcrafted glass souvenirs. Fondamenta San Basilio I think it was and... More
This was our 3rd time in Venice and Dorsoduro is our favorite sestiere to stay in. First time visitors may prefer San Marco or near the Rialto but if you want a little more quiet we thoroughly recommend Dorsoduro. We stayed in the Palazetto da Schio behind Santa Maria della Salute. The canal it is on is beautiful. Quick and... More
Very different place, it has a very unique atmosphere and it feels very calm and relaxing. Taking a walk through here feels very peaceful.
Quiet streets no tourists just locals going about their daily business. Lovely area to walk round but the nearer you get to the grand canal busier it gets. I can't tell you where we went we just walked around taking everything in. As Venice goes you're likely to get lost so use the trip advisor app pointing you in the... More
This area is do close to Venice but just separated by the Grand Canal ses like another world. No hustle or noise or tourist activity, just a beautiful neighborhood with restaurants and art and locals.
I personally think this maybe the most interesting neightborhood in Venezia. It hasn't been found from the tourist crowd yet, and this is keeping Dorsoduro quiet, romantic, and, most important, authentic. Run out of the crowd and discover the little little part of Venezia that is still real!
I do agree with Thomas Bornell about the delights of Dorsoduro where I have stayed for many years. I would emphasise the desirability of taking your Alilaguna ferry or water bus to the landing stage closest to your hotel or apartment as it is all too easy to get lost in the back streets of Dorsoduro, just as anywhere else...

It was my good fortune to select a hotel (the Hotel Alla Salute, which I will review separately) in Dorsoduro, which seemed to be (and very much was) in a wonderful location...across the Grand Canal from the San Marco district, so close, yet so separate from all the touristy madness. After 15 hours of flying from Los Angeles, I arrived... More
