L’isola di Giudecca The Giudecca island, lying south of the historic centre of Venice, represents the largest island in Venice. It is actually made up of eight small islands interconnected by several bridges and bordered by the Giudecca channel. Located opposite to Piazza San Marco and the Dorsoduro district, this island is a quiet and relaxing working-class residential neighbourhood and it is not invaded by crowds of tourists. Visitors can get there easily by vaporetto from the Zattere promenade water-bus stop. Landing off at Sant’Eufemia waterstop you can admire the homonymous church, one of the oldest in Venice and the Molino Stucky complex, Venice’s first neogothic building. The most representative building is the “Chiesa del Redentore” (Church of the Redeemer) that hosts many Renaissance masters’ paintings. La Giudecca is also famous for the breathtaking views of Venice that you can enjoy from its waterfront.
