The Districts

Giudecca
Giudecca
United with Venice only once a year when a bridge built over boats is thrown across the Zattere, the wide canal which separates it from the city, a walk around Giudecca will reward you with a special world of fine churches and memories of the industrial past.
Cannaregio
Cannaregio
Despite the changes of the 19th century this district is pure Venice. Here the first Ghetto was established, but it was also an area where merchants from everywhere imaginable made their homes, the “Ormenians”, the Spanish, the French and the Germans, creating here a veritable Tower of Babel of languages and peoples.
San Polo
San Polo
The Rialto has always been at the commercial heart of Venice, also the area most frequented by the famous courtesans of Venice. The bridge links the quarters of San Marco and San Polo and offers a fine view of the Grand Canal.
Santa Croce
Santa Croce
The district first seen by those arriving from the mainland, anciently much involved in the wool trade and where buildings of great quality have arisen. Little-frequented alleys will lead to our discovery of wonderful spots like San Boldo or the Campo of San Giacomo dell' Orio.
Dorsoduro
Dorsoduro
There are a series of museums on Dorsoduro ranging from the Gallery of the Accademia to the Guggenheim and François Pinault foundations. The Zattere is also one of Venice's favoured spots for a stroll. Dorsoduro is truly a link with the past.
San Marco
San Marco
This district is the vibrant heart of the city, and a stroll through the Piazza and on amongst the campi, alleys, underpasses, stairways and theatres to the Rialto, the economic heart of the city, will echo the splendour of the Serene Republic, beginning with the Palazzo Ducale and the Basilica di San Marco.
Castello
Castello
The most eastern of the city's districts, with imposing structures and fine buildings ranging from the Arsenale to the great churches of San Giovanni e Paolo and San Zaccaria. Castello remains a district that preserves intact the charm of the past.
