We came upon this place when we strolled around our hotel to find something to eat. It was already dark - around 9 pm. We came through a small street and our eyes opened wide when we saw a big square filled with bars and...More
This is a very large piazza in the Dorsoduro district. Very buzzy spot being close to the university and student life. Full of bars so obviously a popular night spot. Large demonstrations on when I visited.
Great place to mix with locals and tourists away from the maddening crowds
This is the main residential area of Dorsoduro, and one of Venice's liveliest squares, popular with students from the neighbouring university.
It is an extremely large open space with plenty of benches,...More
We stayed in an apartment at this square (campo). Lots of restaurants but not too
crowded. There is a small shpermarket and a nice gelatto place there as well. A little bit far from the main attraction though.
We absolutely loved this area of Venice. We had no idea how wonderful it would be. We had tickets to an opera and ballet concert immediately next to the campo. It was a fabulous evening. Next time that we go to Venice, we plan to...More
This is a really nice area of venice to stop for an afternoon drink. The square is the student social center of Venice. It can get a bit rowdy at night though not anything scary when I have passed through. Definitely noisy on weekend evenings...More
This is a larger than usual campo, surrounded by restaurants (so much choice) and bars and frequented by a variety of people including academics from nearby universities and colleges. A lovely place to walk around and eat lunch or dinner
Having read up where was good for lunch we decided to go for this square and it was as good as mentioned. A nice lively square with cheaper restaurants and a good selection of options. There are fancier more expensive restaurants on the canalside down...More
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.
