Campo Santa Margherita 3116/a | Dorsoduro, 30123 Venice, Italy
Last month, my husband and I took a class at the Ist. Venezia. It was my third class there in the last several years and I highly recommend it as a casual, simple activity to pick up a local side of Venice. Every time, I've...More

I think the school has very good teachers. In my experience, conscientious, motivated and interested in the students and their learning. They work hard and put a lot into the process.
The students are from many countries and atmosphere in general good with the opportunity...More
I had the chance to participate some week courses a couple of times to improve my broken Italian. Each time I was put exactly to the right class, perfectly matching my then level, which I could significantly improve, thanks to the teachers' proficiency, the methodology...More

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.
