Punta Della Dogana

For some contemporary art, check out the Biennale, Peggy Guggenheim and the Punta della Dogana Museums in Dorsoduro, the latter of which hosts pieces from François Pinault’s collection. Then just immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this artsy corner of the city, with its labyrinth of art galleries and artisan shops.

Scuola Grande di San Rocco

Head to San Polo to plunge into Renaissance and Baroque Venice. Pay a visit the majestic cycle of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco by Tintoretto and to the church of Santa Maria dei Frari, home to works by Titian, Bellini, Donatello and Sansovino, among others.

Castello District

For a relaxing interval, stroll through the residential neighbourhood of Castello all the way to the gardens of Sant’Elena. At the core of the gardens is a lovely café build inside a liberty greenhouse called Serra dei Giardini, especially convenient for a tea break and some rest after the hefty walk.

Rialto Market

The Rialto Market is one of the liveliest in Italy, and the fish stalls are particularly spectacular. Go early in the morning to secure the cream of the crop, then head swiftly to the Rialto Bridge and soak in the Grand Canal and its embroidered palazzi at golden hour.
