My family of four stayed near the Accadamia. This area isn't as crowded as many parts of Venice, which is a good thing. We walked about 7 minutes and we were on the water getting a lovely breeze. We were very close to the Peggy...More

Dorsoduro is on the opposite bank to San Marco and is much quieter. The Guggenheim exhibition and the Accadamia are located on the promontory. Numerous bars and restaurants and little cichetti bars serving small morsels of food and glasses of passable wine to be eaten...More

Really nice area to walk around, away from madness of San Marco area... some nice art shops / exhibitions, great views across the canals to other islands, plenty of little cafes (as anywhere else) and awesome atmosphere.

This are is more residential and a quiet 'suburb' of bussling St. Mark's Square, but still very easily accessible either by walking or vaparetto. Easy walking with sights, great restaurants and shopping nearby.

The issue with Venice is that so many visitors stick to the main sights. Get off the beaten track and see all the back streets etc. You can also book a free walking tour in the Dorsoduro, that will show you some of back streets....More

Compared to San Marco there is a lot less tourists on the sidewalks. We went in the first week of august, very hot and I recommend to stay in the shadows and grab some nice icecream that they sell almost everywhere.

Although the Dorsoduro is on the route between the Piazza Roma and the Accademia it's quiet with a certain charm. Look carefully ande you'll find one of the remaining gondola boatyards.

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

Fly into Marco Polo Airport, the main airport in Venice. You can take a water bus but for €110 you can get your own private water taxi to Dorsoduro, probably the Academia bridge would be closest. Having travelled on both... More

No need for private taxis, unless you have mobility issues or you have tourist aversion (which makes sense with so many people). It is easy to use the Alilaguna pass for the vaporetti that will take you everywhere for as... More
