We were on the island for 11 days, longer than planned thanks to Easyjet cancelling our flight home. It was our second time staying here - last time was in September and the touristy bits of Venice were a lot more crowded. Giudecca seems a...More
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
We wanted to see the quiet section of Venice and thus ventured to the island of La Giudecca by water bus / Vaporetto & it was easy. The area does exude a special character of its own without the hustle & bustle of San Marco....More
Giudecca is a little island in Venetian lagoon where where you can be away from the crowds and find cheaper accommodation.
Although you have to constantly take the Vaporetto to San Marco.
We found the island is good to visit to view the skyline of...More
a peaceful place for those tired of the crowded main island's noise. easy and calm lifeflow, if you have time - just switch off your GPS, turn from the seafront to any arch and enjoy the inner life of Giudecca ))
a lot of small...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!
We looked at the reviews and introduction about Giudecca Island while we were in Venice, we didn't find too many information. We decided to go there for a quick visit anyway. However, we were fascinated with its beauty, wonderful quiet walking paths, watching towers and...More
An interesting experience. We stayed on giudecca mostly because the hotel that I wanted had excellent reviews, and happened to be there. We arrived via a very expensive water taxi in the early evening, and to be quite honest, were completely underwhelmed. We dropped our...More
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. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.

In January and February it‘s quite cool in the mornings around 5-6 degrees Centigrade. During daytime around 8-10, but often the sun is shining so you can even sit on outside for a drink. Our hotel wasn‘t on the Giudecca, so I couldn‘t tell, surely there are restaurants around, but probably Giudecca is more lifely in the warm seasons from late march to late September. Anyways, Venice is beautiful on its Winters because of the light and you surely will enjoy.

There is only ONE WAY to dress when you travel ... LIKE AN ONION ! You wear slightly lighter clothes underneath & warmer clothes over it like a rain type jacket. That way you can undress some of the hot clothes when it is hot & you don't get caught short when the weather turns cold. We were there in November & May. Neither months were terribly cold. Dress like I said & you will be fine in most weather & rain. Remember Europe is COLD OUTSIDE in winter BUT HOT INSIDE THE HOTELS & TRANSPORT as most are heated.
In Countries like SOUTH AFRICA who do not use double glazing & much artificial heat you have to dress WARMLY INSIDE & OUT in the evening & early morning especially. In Venice the HOTELS are HOT inside so you will need to take off warm jackets.
