It is amazing how different Giudecca is, just a couple of vaporetto stops away from Piazza San Marco! First of all, there is no crowd there, much less tourists than on Burano or Murano. From the quiet Fondamenta San Giacomo the view of the wide...More

Best place to sit outside a bar and drink your afternoon spritz, watching the sunset and looking across the water to San Marco. If a huge cruise liner sails past it will astound you just how huge these ships are!

Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the
crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent
Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh,
Guidecca, points away from the others – part of
Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal.

factories to a quiet residential area with a
sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
