As a city pretty much devoted to tourism Dorsoduro is a fresh Sestiere, with great ambiance and less "touristic feel"
Have a nice gelato at Nico's Gelateria.

This area of Venice was on our doorstep, so to speak, for seven heavenly days. Most days we ventured further into Venice but on returning to Dorsudoru, we felt as though we were returning 'home'. to a more relaxed ambience.

Get away from the crowds and see the Dorsoduro. This is a great area with nice hotels, restaurants, galleries and shops. There is also the best bridge in Venice, the Accademia Bridge, with a great view of the Grand Canal and Santa Maria Salute. We have stayed in this neighborhood several times and we always stay here.

If you travel to Venice go stroll around Dorsoduro quarter. lots to see, major attractions close by, great restaurants and shops, street vendors...you find all. Sit in one of the cafes and have a Prosecco or a Spritz, indulge in the amazing Italian cuisine.

The Rialto quarter is the most ancient, but also the most cramped, with tiny alleys overcrowded by tourists. In Dorsoduro you can admire the centuries old palaces as you walk along the canal (the 'pavements' often run along the canals, which means there's more light, more air and more space to admire the 'real' Venice). Also, Dorsoduro is home to one of the most beautiful and lively square of Venice: CAmpo Santa Margherita. It has plenty of cafes and bars with outdoor tables, stalls where the locals buy their fresh vegetables and fish, kids playing around, colourful aperitifs and people chatting ameniably around.
