Salute and Dogana, Venice

Map of Venice's sestieri

For most visitors, Dorsoduro begins at the foot of the Accademia Bridge from San Marco.

However, the sestiere runs all the way from traditional working-class neighborhoods near the Piazzale Roma to the district's eastern tip of Dogana, where the Giudecca and Grand Canals meet on their way to St. Mark's Basin.

Dorsoduro also includes the island of La Giudecca with its Redentore Church.
