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.

Don't miss meandering through here - great campos and streets everywhere. Put away the map and just go.

Despite being only a bridge away from the mayhem of San Marco this area offers relative calm. The Zattere can be very hot and the restaurants were not the best we found. However venture into the interior and there are some real gems. The workshop of Antonio Afferri on the Zatterre is worth a visit even if only to look... More

I've been visiting my boyfriend here in Dorsoduro, and I just want to say that it is easily my favorite neighborhood in Venice. Great food, easy access to the Lido via vaporetto, a Billa close by: who could ask for more?

Nice area to visit, not to heaving with tourists, you can have a bit of space to move around, lots of nice photo opportunities and places of interest to visit as well as shops to browse in.

Very quiet with locals going about their lives. A grocery store was near the hotel. Never really had to cross Accademia to feel comfortable. The smell of jasmine trees - something I will never forget.

Top spot to stay if you want to be close to the centre of the city without having to fight the crowds of other tourists.

This is the place to see once you are done with the tourist areas of Venice. This area is much less packed and provides a glimpse of the Venician life like kids playing in the streets. It still has its tourist shops, but just not every single store front, and, it has the best gelato in Venice, Nico's (we tried... More

Stayed in this district - nice and quiet, not too touristy, but not empty and desolate. Plenty of restaurants, shops, bar cafes in the area; and close to the more lively neighborhoods.
