Giudecca, Venice

4.5
#5 of 31 in Parks in Venice
Get away from the crowds and discover another side of Venice at Giudecca, the city's largest island. Once an area of opulent palaces and gardens frequented by nobles, the island became largely industrial during the 20th century. Nowadays, many factories and shipyards have given way to luxury hotels and apartments. Still, its palpable working-class vibe makes up much of the island's appeal, drawing visitors with its more laid-back, community atmosphere. Explore the small alleys, artist's studios, and local shops, then grab a meal at one of the waterfront restaurants--which are much more affordable than those on the mainland. Access the island by vaporetto. For Giudecca and beyond, use our Venice trip planner to get the most from your Venice vacation.

  • The city of Venice has now become too touristy, if you want to find some tranquility and genuineness you have to visit the island of Giudecca. Here you will find the Venetian doc who tries to live his life away from the 'casin' of the city center. Highly recommended!!!

  • Arriving in Venice on a cruise you can enjoy a great view of the whole city, so the Giudecca Canal stands out to tour the city in Vaporetto.

  • Quiet and relaxing place
  • More quiet and relaxed than the rest of Venice. Fairly spooky at night. I loved it.
