From the city’s greatest art gallery to its most eccentric art patrons the Dorsoduro is refined, artistic and always charming.

  • Capture the beauty of Venice & the Grand Canal from the Accademia bridge
  • See the world through Venetian art – true masters of light, movement & colour.
  • Slip on a pair of furlane, the velvety Venetian slippers worn by gondoliers.

  • With flaming red hair and cat-green eyes hear tales of the most scandalous woman of her day.  Did we mention the pet cheetahs and nude servants?
