The Dorsoduro district, called in this way because it is located in a very little swamp area, is the southernmost district of the city.
Very popular with young people and tourists, it hosts the Campo Santa Margherita, an ideal place to meet up and have a chat while sipping a spritz and enjoying the “cicchetti”, typical of the city.
However, in the Dorsoduro there are also many attractions, including churches, museums and monuments that are worth a visit.
One of the most important museums in this area is the Accademia Gallery, where you can find Venetian and Venetian works of art, with paintings by Tiziano, Tintoretto, Canaletto and Bellini; the second stop not to be missed is the modern art collection by Peggy Guggenheim, located inside the Venier dei Leoni palace, a charming 18th century building, which overlooks the Grand Canal and has a lovely little garden.
Among the churches, it is worth taking a look at the Church of the Gesuati with works by Tiepolo and Tintoretto, the Church of San Sebastiano in Renaissance style, with decorations by Paolo Veronese and the Church of San Trovaso, near the which is a construction site where the gondolas are built.
Last but not least, the Fondamenta delle Zattere, a walk along the coast, which follows the course of the Giudecca canal for about 1 km, is an opportunity to admire the view in absolute tranquility.
At the end of the walk, come and visit us!
