The Heart of Venice

Did you know you can find art in Venice? Yeah, and apparently it’s pretty famous too… Sarcasm aside, the Dorsoduro district is a hotspot for some of the city’s best up-and-coming artists as well as a home to many museums containing art. And located on a peninsula between the Grand Canal, Giudecca, and Saint Mark’s basin, how could the artists of the city not be inspired. If you're not an artsy person, there are many small shops, as well as the oldest boatyard in Venice to explore. Dorsoduro also contains the University of Venice so you will be mixing with a young crowd that helps to keep the prices in the district low.

Utrip Tips

*Squero di San Trovaso: An amazing Venetian boatyard.
*Academia Bridge: Classic Venetian bridge with classic Venetian views.
*Venice Jazz Club: Jazz club, anyone?
*Ca' Macana: An awesome place to get your Venetian masks—or you can make your own, too!
*Campo Santa Barbara: A stunning square that's been in a few blockbuster movies.
