Guidecca is a great island to stay on, in particular in the Hilton Molino Stucky hotel which is a renevated mill. The building itself looks like an attraction! The island has various little bars, resturants and shops which are all reasonably priced. One morning as we went for a walk we passed an open door to see people making pasta in the kitchens which was great to watch.

I always thought that it's better to live across a nice ancient house than inside one. So it's better to walk in the quiet Giudecca, crossing with few people and basically locals, having a spritz in a quiet cafe and staring at the beatiful Venetian skyline. Best time its in midday and early afternoon when the canal street is shaded from the houses that are situated southwards. Exactly the time that you have to avoid Venice centre.

Palazzo dei tre Oci, the photography Center, is the ICP of Venice. We caught a terrific Elliot Erwitt exhibit. The space is perfect for photography and a nice stroll afterward make this
a great spot to get away from it all. Easy to reach via vapereto.

take the water bus and cross the river for some local food and a walk through where real Venetians live! peaceful & no cruise ship passengers in sight! was a lovely break from the crazy part of Venice

Guidecca is nice... having a drink at Cipriani's is awesome, but on the whole, our time was better spent in Venice proper.
