La Giudecca, Venice

4.3
#5 of 32 in Parks in Venice
Get away from the crowds and discover another side of Venice at La 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 La Giudecca and beyond, use our Venice trip planner to get the most from your Venice vacation.

  • Here is a small program for a good day away from the tourist crowds. To the left on the island, quite impressive, the Redentore Chiesa who gives himself airs of Basilica, she really deserves a visit, calm and serenity. Then the long dock on the lagoon or we can drink a spritz before go eat at the restaurant Altanella, calle delle Erbe in a very quiet street, on a canal, one of the best and most enjoyable restaurants in Venice, Mitterrand was habits, then a long walk along the lagoon with the magnificent view on the great monuments of Venice to reach the end of the island with the Hilton hotel, huge, installed in the old mills of Venice where you can get a drink on the terrace with the view on any the lagoon and take the hotel shuttle will bring back you on Venise.En course of ballad go in small streets towards the inner island in quiet and stop you at the Fortuny before arriving at the Church of Santa Eufemia, factory store you y find the most beautiful fabrics to old Venise.Ils have a Museum in San Angelo.Le return to Venice on the side of St Marc or the Accademia does funny.
