I didn't realize one could rate neighbourhoods, but I noticed this when finishing a TA review for a B&B in this area and I had to say a word. It is a lovely section of Venice. Home to some of the main attractions of the city but also quiet and charming. Great selection of restaurants as well and just a... More

The Dorsoduro is a wonderful area of quiet canals, shaded squares and lovely residences belonging to wealthy Venetians - I wish I was one of them! It's also the location for Ca'Rezzonico, the Zattere area, the Accademia, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and last but not least the Santa Maria della Salute

We stayed in Dorsoduro on two occasions and really loved the local atmosphere and being away from the biggest crowds of tourists. Many lovely restaurants and cafés. Beautiful place for a long walk especially if you travel with children or a dog.

After a trip to the friari, this was our next destination and this part of town is perfect for its views, shopping joints and various cafes and restaurants and along with that they have so much more around here to see. We took a long stroll around the place and enjoying occasional snacks and souvenir collection.

There are beautiful hotels and apartments to stay in and you can easily walk or get the water bus from here to anywhere in Venice. There are great restaurants here too, coffee bars, bakeries offering mouth watering cakes and... More
