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.
Peggy Guggenheim's superb collection of early 20th century art including Picasso, Ernst, Picabia, Kandinsky, et al. The setting is lovely as is the sculpture garden. One of the most enjoyable museum's in the world of art. On the present visit I also experienced an enjoyable Mark Tobey exhibit.
We walked in to view the interior, there was an organist playing live during that time, it was great to just sit down and relax. A service was held right after the organist stopped playing. Modest attire still applies, but not enforced even though there's a staff standing at the door for donation to the church, and there's no cover...
You will be stunned the first glance on that spectacular ceiling. Trust me on this. Whatever frescos you have seen in Rome/Florence may be less attractive after you see this great piece of art.
Photos prohibited so please Google for relevant photos. It may take you only 1 hour or only 10 min inside but definitely worth it.
"Amazing paintings, as ever, plus (summer 2017) great Philip Guston exhibition"
reviewed 4 days ago by Ann J
The Accademia in Venice is always being worked on (unsurprisingly, given the constant need to shore up Venice's historic buildings) which can make it tricky to navigate. There are, of course, some amazing paintings here and the spaces are extraordinary but for me this visit was all about the Philip Guston and the Poets exhibition which was well worth a...
Came here for a light dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Lots of people eating out by the canal. Made for a very relaxed and enjoyable night out!

"Great location and food"
reviewed 1 week ago by daisytoronto
My wife and I enjoyed their 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings 3 weeks ago. We had a table next to the water on a beautiful night with a full moon. It doesn't get much better than that. The food was all very well prepared and we enjoyed all the wine pairings.
We just ate & found this place almost closing as we walked by near end of a day. So we quickly walked in to pick a few things to-go to eat later. The 4 things looked exactly the same at our hotel as when we picked them up from the store because it was very carefully packed...not to mentioned that...
The last stop on our holiday, we had pizza in Rome and Florence, unfortunately for Venice the top pizzas in Rome and Florence were in a different league to Pizza AL Volo.
Don't get me wrong there pizza is good but when compared it was just another pizza all be it with a great price.
We went to this little restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Thankfully we asked our hotel to book ahead and we got the last table.
We had 3 courses and a bottle of wine (recommended to us) and everything we had was exceptional. We are real foodies and were spoilt for choice with the...
Just returned from a short stay in Venice. The hotel assisted me in setting up a private water taxi - which was very convenient. We arrived early in the morning but were able to get into our room within 20 minutes of arrival. They anticipated that we were coming since they had arranged our transport.
Room was quiet and very...
Amazing service. Perfect room. Breakfast served whereever you fancy. Perfect place for you Venice stay! Just perfect. Grande canale 2 min walk 1 stop to San Marco. Restaurants around the corner. Dont miss out on this hotel. Awarded as worlds vest small boutiqe hotel 2016. Well deserved.
Great location between Accademia and Zattere (easy walk to Aliguna stop to airport). Close to major sights, but the area is not overly congested and crowded. The room was very comfortable, a/c worked well, and the bathroom was spacious. Check-in and check-out was pleasant, and front desk was always helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good, and it was nice...
We recently returned from our fourth stay at this charming and delightful hotel. It just keeps getting better!
The hotel is a quintessential Venetian palazzo and is kept up to date beautifully. It is expertly run and managed and has a fabulous location in Dorsoduro on the Grand Canal.
Hi to all. Its my first review on trip advisor just because we recently stayed at this great Hotel - PALAZZO VENEZIANO ! This was absolute highlight of the trip. The hotel is only 4 months old and has absolutely great features. First of all, we got a FREE UPGRADE to the great 2 story room with Jacuzzi and balcony,...
