The Dorsoduro area is a characteristic street in Venice. The College Bridge is in this area. Compared to other popular attractions, there are fewer people here.More
This lovely neighborhood is home to the Guggenheim and has lovely views of San Marco from across the water.
Dorsoduro is the first sestieri I stayed in on my first visit to Venice. It was explained to me as the "young people's" district and the one where all the night life is. Venice, in my experience, doesn't have a crazy night life scene, but if you are going to find one, much of it will be here.
