This guide to Giudecca is based on several visits. It’s important to check hospitality opening times because Giudecca is a tiny, mainly residential island and nowhere near as touristy as other parts of Venice. Places can suddenly close too. And a tiny ask: when you visit Venice, please try to avoid using AirBnB
I adore Guidecca (& am scouring the real estate listings on the island) I learned so much! Your descriptions of the market days is going to be so useful.
What a tragedy about your confiscated bay leaves 💔
The Giudecca Island is where I first lived in Venice and it still holds a special place in my heart. There's a quiet and intimacy there that you can hardly find in other spots. And just across the canal the whole world awaits you. Just perfect.
Thank you for this beautiful post Nic!
We always love exploring the quieter, more residential neighbourhoods of Venice and Guidecca is so lovely for that. Beautiful post, really enjoyed it!
I very much enjoyed this beautifully written guide to Giudecca. Youve made me want to visit there as soon as possible, and alos I felt ravenous after reading it!
I shall certainly use this article as a basis for a trip there......
