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.
Yes, if i could go to only one place in Venice, I would go here. And 20th Century art is not my favorite. Renting the audio guide is a must. It is very engaging and informative. In addition to better understanding the art, you will also learn more about Peggy Guggenheim and how she came to know some of the...
I visited this Basilica twice during my Venice visit. The architecture is just gorgeous - the view of this Basilica from either the Accademia bridge or San Marco is absolutely amazing. The interior isn't large - but the paintings are lovely as are the statues where the dome area is. What is great about this place is the space in...
This museum is covered by the Museum Pass, which I found to be a good deal while in Venice. I visited during a weekday in early December, and there were very few tourists. It's easy to get to as it has its own water bus stop, but I walked to it from my hotel in Dorsoduro and found it easily....

"Largest oil painting in the world"
reviewed 6 days ago by Russell99999
The ceiling painting by Fumiari took 24 years. Claimed as the largest oil on canvas painting in the world - at 25m x 50m it may well be true. The painter, it is said, fell off the scaffold and died in 1704. Look for the machine to turn the lights on.
Having walked over the Ponte Dell'Accademia we made our way to the Punta della Dogana. As well as the fantastic Damien Hirst exhibition currently within this fantastic building, you get a marvellous view of St. Marks from a different perspective.
I visited this place twice while in Venice. The food was fine - nothing to write home about but considering how pricey food is in Venice, this represents very good value. If I recall correctly, it is Euro 1.40 for your first piece of crostini. My favorite was the the one with goat cheese and a bit of balsamic. I'm...
I spend few hours in Venice so I visited Tripadvisor before, just to get the perfect pizza! Delicious and cheap. Love it! For sure I'll come back for another pizza next time! Also you can grab your pizza and go outside and find a bench on the square!
Staff friendly and very nice food. Small choice but food tasty and very nicely presented. Quite expensive and wine prices high.
It appears a number of hotels close by recommend this place. NB You can get 20% off if book through trip advisor
We stayed 3 nights at DD694 (Annex Building) in Dorsoduro. Our room was modern, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was excellent (the best we had during our Italy trip), especially the cook to order bacon and eggs, croissants, ham and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Silvia and Irene were very friendly and helpful. Lovely gesture of welcome drink to enjoy...
"A beautiful and cosy haven of tranquilty with fantastic service"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by Lawrence T
A superb find. All the luxury of a high end hotel but with a very intimate feel to it. We went our whole stay barely seeing any other guests despite the hotel being full. The staff are exceptionally friendly and attentive. The location is pleasantly quiet but only seconds from the boat stop and several galleries.We will definitely return!
Situated in a quiet part of Venice but close to ponte dell'Academia to cross the Grande Canal.
Asked about a good place to eat, hotel gave an excellent recommendation. Also have information about how to avoid crowds.
Room well appointed and clean.
My wife booked this hotel for my 50th birthday (mainly on the reviews here). I can honestly say that the good reviews are fully justified! The setting is excellent and within easy walk of all the beautiful highlights of Venice. In the summer I'd think that its location would be ideally just far enough from the main tourist areas to...
My husband and I had been on a pilgrimage tour, but our last two days of a wonderful vacation were spent in Venice at this lovely hotel. It is right on the Grand Canal, and the
view and ambiance are simply breath-taking. This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, and is within walking distance of everything you want or need...
