Great area to wander around. Lots of great window-shopping, restaurants, palazzos, galleries... Take the vaporetto across to Santa Maria della Salute and then walk up toward the Rialto, stopping for espresso or cold beer as needed.

This is a very special area of Venice and if you are lucky and leave the main tourist track you have the area all to yourself. Nice little restaurants.

Dorsoduro is the place in Venice where you will get a flavour of the ‘real Venice’ without the crowds of San Marco and for a fraction of the cost. You don’t have to venture far from San Marco to find quiet streets, locals’ haunts and...More

I enjoyed walking in Dorsoduro much more than in San Marco because it's so much quieter and more peaceful. I highly recommend taking the 2Euro boat from San Marco across Grand Canal and then walking towards Peggy Guggenheim museum and Accademia and going inside Ca'Rezzonico...More

We love this area - primarily because it has a slightly more artsy and bohemian atmosphere with its art galleries, shops and bars. It is the more student orientated district to, so tends to be a bit cheaper than the main tourist traps. The waterfront...More

It is a pleasant neighborhood, not as touristy as some, home of the university and the Accademia (art museum) and the Guggenheim, one of the n nicest parts of Venice

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

Dorsoduro is safe and very pleasant, but not the cheapest. I guess Castello or Giudecca are. They are less central. Venice is a safe place except for pickpocketing. The pickpockets are very skillful, especially on... More
