In this chapter we talk about the small and pretty Dorsoduro District, set between the Giudecca Canal and the Grand Canal.

Together with the Rialto area, the surface of the Dorsoduro District was the first to be settled, thanks to its much more stable soil than that of other more marshy neighboring islets. At Dorsoduro we can say that there’s really everything from works of art to nightlife. It’s a rich and fascinating district.

Dorsoduro District

The eastern area, certainly more calm and gracious is characterized by shady squares, silent canals, views of the lagoon and picturesque residences of wealthy Venetians and foreigners.

The west part of the district, on the other hand, is more lively and has its main point of interest in the Santa Margherita Campo, a meeting place for young people, with several shops, restaurants and bars that also offer live music until late at night.

Dorsoduro District

Dorsoduro welcomes many large art collections, including the Accademia Galleries, the fascinating art of Salt Stores and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
