It was so quiet staying on Giudecca. We would take the Hilton shuttle to visit the busy Venice when we felt like it. The restaurants were lovely. There were beautiful quiet residential streets to stroll. There were a couple of boat repair/building shops that we enjoyed seeing.

Having traveled around the globe for almost 4 decades, I look for peaceful locations to make my home base. Giudecca allows me to live like and eat like a local. There are many options for lodging from ultra-lux (Cipriani Hotel), Luxury (Hilton) and hostels . We recently rented an apartment on a canal using Homeaway.Com. Restaurants and Trattorias located off... More

That's how they call the Giudecca island. This is because in winter the humidity and the cold wind is so strong that you really has to struggle to keep you warm. The little island is beautiful. there are some little places where you can have a Spritz (the traditional drink for young and older locals) and traditional delicacies. Walk inside... More

We stayed at the Hilton, so it was easy for us to explore the island. There are a number of small restaurants where the locals eat and Harry's Dolci Cipriani for fine dining as well as a couple of other options that are part of the high-end hotels at the east end of the island. You get a glimpse of... More

Just a short water taxi trip across the lagoon from Venice and you land the a peaceful beautiful La Giudecca. Nice restaurant's, attractions with history and generally a great place to stroll around away from the hectic Venice.

If you have Valporetto tickets, make sure you get off here, picture postcard view of Venice, St Marks and glistening water. Have lunch right in the waters edge at any one of the good value cafes and soak up the more relaxed atmosphere. Perfecto!

Staying in Giudecca

Neighborhood Profile
Giudecca
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.
