By far a very picturesque and idyllic place to stay in Venice, a vast amount of fantastic restaurants to choose from. A short walk to many of the attractions Venice has to offer, highly recommend.

We really enjoyed this tour. What an interesting neighborhood. gondola building and many locals. Beautiful churches. This part of town is definitely for the walkers. Many bridges and about 5 miles to complete the tour.A different prospective .

We actually stayed in Dorsoduro at Hotel Tiziano. I believe the hotel choice may have tainted my view of this neighborhood. The hotel was horrible. (see review in hotel section. This neighborhood is about a 30 minute walk to St Mark's Squarre at a very...More

It's a quite place where only locals roam. Perfect for people not looking for the big places to visit, but who just want to have a peaceful time enjoying the spirit of the city. Also, the streets here are slim and it is very easy...More

A tranquil haven after the mania of Piazza San Marco and Rialto bridge with quite ginnells, wrought iron bridges and a few bars and restaurants, art studios and jewellers, not to mention Peggy Gugenhem Museum and the Chiesa di Salute with Titians and Tintorettos in...More

We found this area by signing up for a mask decorating workshop at Ca’ Macana, a first rate authentic mask making business. Four of us were at the shop for 2 hours. Really fun and educational. The Dorsoduro neighborhood is quaint with hidden shops everywhere....More

Really like Dorsoduro...near enough to all the attractions but far from the madding crowd. Lots of lovely little shops, café/bars and just get lost down all the little alleys and watch all the gondolas while standing on one of the many little bridges!

Depending on where you stay, dorsoduro is still close to San Marco and all the tourist stops but is much quieter and less crowded.

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

Dorsoduro is safe and very pleasant, but not the cheapest. I guess Castello or Giudecca are. They are less central. Venice is a safe place except for pickpocketing. The pickpockets are very skillful, especially on... More
