Looking out across Venice’s canals with feet dangling over stone quays is a daily pursuit in Dorsoduro/Accademia. Encompassing the Giudecca Canal and separated from San Marco and the heart of Venice by the Grand Canal, Dorsoduro stays busy without feeling overwhelming. Culture is key in this local-laden, unflashy neighborhood—Gothic style churches commingle with renowned art institutions like the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the art-school-turned-museum, Gallerie dell’Accademia.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
