This is a mostly residential neighborhood with real stores for residents. Tucked away are some delightful restaurants. About a 10 minute walk from Piazza San Marco

Not the charming neighborhoods you can find in other areas, but good for first trips to Venice because it's the site of the Academia Bridge, one of the few bridges over the Grand Canal. Area contains the Peggy Gugenheim Museum and the Academia Museum.

As a day tripper, most tourists will not have the time to wander over to Dorsoduro. However, if you have the chance to stay longer than a day, take the bridge or the water taxi to this amazing district of Venice. Walk the streets, cross...More

In spite of its being a favourite with many it is not crowded nor touristy. Round every corner another lovely view. Lots of wonderful shops, markets, bars and restaurants.

The Dorsoduro with its lively Campo Santo Marghareta, Campo San Banaba, its numerous osterias, the Venice University buildings, the formidable Fondamenta Zattere is for me often THE highlight on a visit to Venice.

There is no ugly part of Venice (well, maybe Tronchetto and its bus and parking sections), and Dorsoduro is no exception. You'll have plenty of tourist company around the Accademia and along the Grand Canal, and at the Guggenheim Collection, and at the stunningly gorgeous...More

This Sestiere is very different from others. A lot of maufacturing stores, artistic essays and tiny streets. At the very ending you can enjoy a complete view of canal grande's ending and Doge's Palace. Very beautiful for a romantic walk

It's a sad fact that the San Marco/Doges Palace/Rialto part of Venice has now become a kind of theme-park 'Venice World'. It's incredibly crowded; incredibly expensive; and about as authentic an experience as a banana pizza. On the other hand, a step over the Accademia...More

As it soo expensive around San Maro why not walk over here and enjoy selecting from a huge range of good value and exciting eating places. You will need to walk around as they are hidden around every corner!

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

Hi again, another thought for you. The water taxi is VERY fast so if you don't like boat rides, think twice as the ride is quite a 'thrill'!
