Giudecca, Venice

4.5
#5 of 32 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.

  • At the end of the Giudecca Canal, south of Venice, the island of Giudecca. The island has some religious architecture, among them, the Church of the Redeemer of the Palladium.

  • Access by Vaporetto, which leaves the station San Zaccaria/San Marco and arrives in 15 min. Use the 24-hour pass to take advantage of several islands. It has a beautiful view of the island of Venice. Enjoy the sunset sitting on the waterfront. There are dining tables on the waterfront. Very quiet. (in April 2018)
