Hi, don't know exactly what is your idea for 'cheap' (unfortunately Venice can't be really so :) or how much is your budget/night.
Anyway, try this couple of addresses in Dorsoduro, prices for a clean double/bathroom are about 80 euro total:

You can also find many offers using www.venere.com and selecting 'Dorsoduro' area: they can give a complete view on any kind of accomodation and useful reliable users reviews.
Hope it helps, have a nice stay in Venice!

Doges palace columns

by paragianna75

There is a legend saying that when the noblemen wanted to convict someone they were sending him to pass a test that would prove his innocence or not.The test was to walk with success from one column to the next without losing the balance and stepping the ground just in front of the columns.But as you can notice in the pic, one of the last columns is built quite different than the others making that effort more than impossible sending all those poor men to prison or to death.

Fondamente della Missericordia

by sandysmith

Stroll along the Fondamente della Missericordia and degli Ormesini. It is behind, running parallel, to the Strada Nova but is worlds away from the tourist hustle and bustle - great place for a quiet stroll and to explore other little campo and calles off it. It has more of a local neighbourhod feel in this area and I wish we hadn't left it to the last day to discover it. There are many wine bars here alongside mexican and middle eastern restaurants - fairly popular in the evening I would image too.

Venetian food and drink

by in4ik

Venetian cuisine bears little trace of the city's past as Europe's trading crossroads, when spices from the East were among the most lucrative commodities sold in Venice's markets. Nowadays Venetian food is known for its simplicity, with plain pepper and salt as the principal means of gingering up a meal. Fish and seafood dominate the restaurant menus, the former being netted in the Adriatic and the rivers and lakes of the mainland, the latter coming from the lagoon and open sea. Prawns, squid and octopus are typical Venetian antipasti (usually served with a plain dressing of olive oil and lemon), as are Murano crabs and sarde in saor (marinated sardines). Dishes like eel cooked in Marsala wine, baccalà (salt cod) and seppioline nere (baby cuttlefish cooked in its own ink) are other Venetian staples, but the quintessential dish is the risotto, made with rice grown along the Po valley. Apart from the seafood variety (risotto bianco, risotto di mare or risotto dei pescatori), you'll come across risottos that incorporate some of the great range of vegetables grown in the Veneto, and others that draw on such diverse ingredients as snails, tripe, quails and sausages.

Venetian soups are as versatile as their risottos, with brodetto (mixed fish) and pasta e fasioi (pasta and beans) being the most popular kinds. Polenta is another recurrent feature of Venetian meals; made by slowly stirring maize flour into boiling salted water, it's served as an accompaniment to a number of dishes, in particular liver (fegato), a special favourite in Venice.

Pastries and sweets are also an area of Venetian expertise. Look out for the thin oval biscuits called baicoli, the ring-shaped cinnamon-flavoured bussolai (a speciality of Burano), and mandolato – a cross between nougat and toffee, made with almonds. The Austrian occupation has left its mark in the form of the ubiquitous strudel and the cream- or jam-filled krapfen (doughnuts).

PACK LIGHT

by wanderingbilly

TRY TO PACK YOUR CLOTHES IN A BACKPACK OR AT LEAST IN A SUITCASE WITH WHEELS AS YOU WILL HAVE QUITE A BIT OF WALKING TO DO AND YOU REALLY DONT WANT TO BE LUGGGING A LOT OF LUGGAGE AROUND THE NARROW STREETS OF VENICE..REMEMBER YOU WILL BE CARRYING IT ALL YOURSELF. LIGHT SUMMER CLOTHES LIKE T-SHIRTS FOR THE DAYS BUT A SHIRT OR SOMETHING WARM FOR THE EVENINGS WHEN IT GETS A BIT COOLER..{ WE WERE THERE IN LATE SEPTEMBER)
LOVELY WARM DAYS BUT COOLER IN THE EVENINGS. MUCH AS YOU WOULD ON ANY TRIP ..JUST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH OF EVERYTHING AS VENICE CAN BE EXPRNSIVE TO STOCK UP ON THINGS. BRING LOADS...YOU WILL TAKE LOADS OF PICS OF THIS WONDERFUL CITY.
AND REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CHARGER.
