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 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. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
Beautiful experience - painted ceilings and walls, damask, art work, furniture, exhibitions and historical rooms. This is a gem of a grand house to spend 2+ hours to visit. Entrance fee is on the combined museum card. Cafe in the basement is a great place to rest your tired feet.

"Giovanni Antonio Fumiani"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by MapleLeafGirl123
There's a hidden treasure here. The San Pantalon looks simple from the outside. Most would pass this church unknowingly. But Fumiani dedicated 20 years of his life to paint the ceiling of this church during the Baroque period. It's especially memorable as the painting was on 44 canvas pieces that were installed into the ceiling. Apparently the largest oil on...
I had a glimpse of this beautiful wedge shaped view from Bell tower , the sights are amazing , we can see the vaporettos and the taxis, gondolas plying back and forth , this place offers some of the beautiful views of Venice at dusk . the cathedral is giant and with rich architectural masterpiece works is an important landmark...

"First Night of our Honeymoon (it didn't disappoint!)"
reviewed 3 days ago by sparkeroffice
We tried the full tasting menu with matching wines - frankly one of the best meals we have ever had - simply awesome.
When booking the restaurant the management make a point of expressing that this restaurant is all about the food not the view (but the view really is great as well).
A very special experience.
"Fantastic cicchetti (vege as well) but service could be nicer / pyszne jedzenie"
reviewed 6 days ago by ticketowa
Many fresh different cicchetti (with meat, vegies, seafood, cheese) - very delicious. You can eat in or take away (etaing in is sometimes impossibile cause there are a lots of people there every time). You can order aperol and other italian drinks as well. Prices max 2 EUR per one "sandwich". Cicchetti is really small so you have to order...
Super nice! We went with two young teenage girls and at first they felt a bit frowned on by other, “loved-up” clients, which might suggest this venue has more of a reputation for intimate, romantic evenings.
That said, the staff were charming and made the girls feel like Princesses :-)
The food was mostly delicious, smelled good, looked good and...
A small place with great selection of wines, small tapas/sandwiches which are sooo good, great wines and great prices. We were walking nearby this place and saw it, although we were after breakfast we couldn't resist their small sandwiches. A glass of pino nero was 1 euro. Nice authentic place with nice people. Highly recommended
The hotel has very nice and modern rooms. The staff, from the two receptionists to the super cute woman who does you your breakfast herself, are all lovely and super supportive.
Rooms are modern and have a great size. We got an upgrade on our second day, which meant way more work for them but they still offered it. Very...
As a special treat we spent 3 nights on a British Airways mini break 3 days before Christmas.AND what a treat this was to find Venice with fewer tourists ( even though we swelled the numbers by 4!,)
But the light was outstanding showing off the great buildings to perfection YES it was cold but wrapped up and always coffee...
I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
The location is very good indeed. The hotel is situated just a few metres from the water-bus (Academia stop) which is by far the cheapest and fun way to reach anywhere in the city from the main station. Being across the grand canal from St Mark's Square, the area feels a little less...
Where do I start this hotel was excellent the room was one of the nicest we have ever stayed in we had the spa suite it came with a huge round tub, sauna, steam, then upstairs was a huge 4 poster very comfortable bed & large bathroom! The Staff was so friendly & helpful, Julian on the front desk was...
Beautiful hotel in great location. Central and steps from a vapparetto stop but out of the Saint Marks Square fray. Gorgeous rooms and breakfast area. Super helpful and friendly staff with great food and touring recommendations. Would definitely stay again.
