This is a lovely area of Venice. Much quieter than the busy St Mark's area. We walked through the area, stopping for lunch from a small cafe selling pizza slices & beer. Things slightly cheaper over this side of the water too. Has many museums to behold. We visited the Da Vinci replicas musem, which has built many of his... More

Dorsoduro is hard land. Not like the rest of Venezia. It is not as touristic as San Marco. We stayed at a nice hotel there. Quiet.

This is a walk from San Marco. You can take the vaporetto if you want but the walk is really nice. You can find Santa Maria della Salute church here and quite a few galleries, also lots of little shops selling souvenirs and little boutiques. I love the little streets and tiny bridges. This place is a bit away from... More

This is a delightful and peaceful district of Venice. It includes many of the museums and attractions Venice is noted for. There are top class hotels, authentic Venetian first areas that are truly magical. When we stayed (late March) there were none of the crowds found on the main island and it felt absolutely safe to walk around at all... More

I have a friend who hates Venice because he says there is nothing to do but see St. Marks and do some shopping...how small minded can one be? I always tell friends who will be visiting Venice to buy a vaporetto pass and get lost. This is a charming district with museums, restaurants and plenty of photo opportunities.

Much quieter than other parts of Venice - but plenty to see - with excellent restaurants - but also watching ordinary residents of Venice commuting to work

Venice is divided into 6 areas or "Sestiere". The Sestiere Dorsodouro is where the Palazzo Ca' Rezzonico a Museum-Palazzo that is a wonderful place to visit, not only for the exhibits but for the building itself. Another place is the Basilica Della Salute which is the point you can see from Piazza San Marco. The church is another work of... More

We like Dorsoduro. Fewer tourists come over here and the alleyways and thoroughfares are quieter. We like going across the Academia Bridge with all its lovers' locks, the view west down the canal and the better view east towards St Marks, the Giudecca Canal and that beautiful church at the end of Dorsoduro. We walked along the Giudecca side of... More
