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.

"Wonderful ceiling - incredible place"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by QSMPEK
Very low-key exterior but a fabulous interior. The ceiling is just unbelievable. Once again, I wish I had read more about it and the painter before I arrived. No queues and very few people. Not so very simple to find but well worth it when you do.
This spot is an amazing lookout point. My husband and I watched the sunset here and shared a bottle of wine. The sun set on the opposite side so we didn't actually see it go down but the lighting was beautiful and it was nice and relaxing to just watch the view and the boats pass by.

"Superb Fine Dining On The Waterfront "
reviewed 5 days ago by GazK68
Dined here in the evening and wasn't disappointed. The staff were fantastic and the owner came and spoke to us when arrived and again when we had finished. We decided on the 7 course taster menu with the matching wine option. The food was fantastic with not one of the courses falling below the extremely high standard set by the...
If you make the effort to find this bakery you will be rewarded with wonderful pastries, biscuits and cakes plus very good coffee.
Old bakery towards the railway station on St Marco side. They serve coffee in beautiful old porcelain cups.
Ladies are very friendly and will help you if you cannot speak Italian.

We came to This restaurant expecting great things. It has brilliant reviews and the price was more expensive than other restaurants we visited.
We only really have a main course in a restaurant due to the fact that we generally snack all day.
I ordered battered fish and vegetables which was quite nice to start with but soon got a...
"Delicious Gelato! Convenient! Good price! Out if this world gelato!"
reviewed 5 days ago by ChagSham
In our 4 days in Venice, this gelato was out of this world!! Got the banana and dark chocolate (with chocolate shavings within!)Omg. I tried same flavors near San Marco Square...tasty but not as creamy and much more expensive.
Drawbacks: cash only. English isn't really spoken but they try!
If I wasn't leaving Venice tomorrow, I'd surely return!
I can’t give the Charming House and, specifically Sylvia, enough accolades. This was our first trip to Italy and navigating Venice was made so much easier by the water taxi and then having Sylvia waiting at the drop off point and personally walking us to the hotel and our rooms followed by a cold bottle of prosseco.
We had two...
We arrived in the hotel about lunchtime and were greeted very friendly by the hotel reception. We immediately got our keys and got to our rooms. Our room was amazing. Such a comfortable place to be, which made us feel like we're at home.
Our bathroom looked super modern and had a nice view onto the city.
The hotel service...
The perfect spot to enjoy the wonders of Venice. Grand Canal Elegance without the crowds. great service. Beautiful rooms and bar patio overlooking Grand CanL. We loved everything about the stay. Highly recommended.
First time to Venice, we picked this hotel based on simply location. Although the front of the hotel has a scaffolding because it is being renovated, the interior of the hotel is compact yet clean and modern. The rooms were in excellent condition and everything was clean and upto our standards. The AC worked very well (despite having read a...
