    We stayed on the Giudecca at the Hilton, Molino Stuckey. We would take the shuttle boat from the hotel across the lagoon to the Zattere stop. It was a pleasant neighbor hood in the Dorsodura with plenty to see.

    This is a really beautiful canal, and you can take the vaporetto (water bus) there to see it. Very picturesque

    Along the northside of Venice, bordering the lagoon, is a 1 kilometer long quayside called Fondamente Nove. Fondamente is a Venetian word to mark a passage between a canal or waterway and buildings. Exceptional are the views from this quay provoking a sense of freedom after having walked through the many narrow alleys of the inner city.

    Ordinary life continues here as if there are no tourists, though there are some taking the vaporetto to Murano. Venetians take the boat to the cemetery of San Michele. There is a petrol station for boats and the main hospital from where ambulance boats transport patients.

    At the far eastern end you can turn right and left again to continue your walk along the lagoon all the way to the Arsenale, where the passage way is just a metal frame attached to the walls above the water.

    After walking through campo san barnaba, looking at the barge full of fruit etc you walk over the pugni bridge - where centuries ago fights took place with rival familes, you look down the long fondamenta squero, full of interesting different coloured houses and locals doing their daily shopping

    Very interesting area to visit.
