A must see when in Venice

So much history, so many human interest stories, a must see. You need a guide, or good guide book to hear the stories and get the full effect.

There is food available. There are citizens living their lives. There are not too many tourists. Thank Dog.

Perhaps easier to reach from the bus at the Accademia rather than the back doubles of from the Rialto this square has a hubbub and price to suit younger travellers wanting to people watch with drinks and food in the evenings without stretching the budget overmuch. The cafes on the west side of the square are friendly an welcoming with... More

Came across this campo by accident. Huge open square, beautiful shady trees and lots of benches to rest on. So many places to eat and drink. Really loved this lovely campo. Found an art shop too, which made my day. Will certainly return next time I visit.

We were lucky enough to be staying in a flat immediately off Campo Santa Margherita. Noisy because it is a popular place for college kids to hang out, but otherwise a lovely place to be. The location is fairly convenient to most things (Venice is very walkable) and there are cafes and restaurants on the square and nearby.

Just returned from a short city break, and stayed at the Hotel Pausania in the Dorsodura district in the City. The hotel is located about 2 minutes walk from Campo Santa Margherita, with a number of restaurants located there, including the Al Sportivi. We found this restaurant on the first night in the city, and ate there for each of... More

This is such a great place! We had a really good time shopping here and prices were very reasonable. We stayed in a place very close, so it was not only good during the day, but there is also some bars, where we could sit and relax at night.

This is a lovely area for a quiet stroll to get away from the crowds around St. Marks Square. Stopped and enjoyed a coffee in one of the cafes in the square.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
