During the past decades the Giudecca Island completely changed its appearance. It has been transformed from an ex-industrial, densely populated, low income area to one of the trendiest spots in Venice. International designers, artists and VIPs pay a premium price to open their contemporary art gallery or showcase their fashionable loft or studio on the Giudecca Island.


The island has a good infrasructure with bakeries, groceries, a super market, a fish shop, cafés and restaurants and many small, specialized shops. 

There is also a supermarket on the Giudecca called Coop.


At one end of the Giudecca you'll find the famous five-star Cipriani hotel with large private gardens and salt-water pool.

At the other end, the Molino Stucky has been converted into a luxury hotel and apartment complex.
