is bordered to the north by the districts of Santa Croce and San Polo, by Rio Ca’ Foscari and Rio Malcanton, to the east by the Grand Canal and to the south it includes the Giudecca Canal and the island of the same name that is considered part of the same district for administrative purposes, although it has its own street numbers. It is linked to the district of San Marco by the Accademia Bridge. The eastern part of the district is made up of Mendigola Island, which was one of the first areas of the city to be colonised, several centuries before the Rialto became the lively heart of Venice. An important church was built on the site of this island - San Nicoḷ dei Mendicoli - dating back to the 11th century. The nearby islands were colonised later, reaching Punta della Dogana, which takes its name from the fact that it was the site of Venice’s Customs House. After San Marco, Dorsoduro is the Venetian district with the most important museums, including the Gallerie dell’Accademia.
