Possibly the best Ice Cream in Venice!

I strongly recommend the ice cream from this little gelateria along the great waterline of Dorsoduro overlooking Giudecca. I went only for the waterbased choices because of lactose problems and boy were they rich and natural in taste. I had to go back and get more! My absolute favourite was the... read more

We grabbed an ice cream here on our walk around the quieter parts of Venice. We were able to sit on the stones outside and look out over the water. The ice cream was good quality and good value. The person who served us spoke good English and was welcoming. This a take-away place but would be fine outside in... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
