About
Dorsoduro is one of the six districts of Venice, whose name translates as “hard bridge” from Italian, due to the area's relatively high terrain.  It's a district of life and light, the Southwestern part of Venice, wedged between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. This tour is away from the busy city centre, but focused on the hidden alleys, canals, bridges and cultural venues, including Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Campo Santo Stefano.
