Full description
Starting at the Gallerie dell'Accademia you will start a unique walk through the Dorsoduro district. You will first head towards the Basilica della Salute, a fascinating example of Baroque architecture, and arrive at Punta della Dogana, the best panoramic spot in town overlooking the heart of the Venetian lagoon and S. Mark's Square. In the meantime, you will walk by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the beautiful secret corners of the city's most exclusive area. Enjoy walking along the side of the Giudecca Canal and stop for a coffee or ice cream before discovering where the gondolas – traditional Venetian black boats – are made by hand. Local Venetians absolutely adore this district because it maintains a human dimension with its 'campi,' the equivalent of small squares. University students roam around these squares, people shop at the local fruit and vegetable stalls, and families gather for wholesome activities.
