Unlike other reviewers didn't find it at all difficult to find. The map was very clear and we found it first time but maybe this is because we've been to venice before so had some idea about the geography from the bus station.
We recently stayed at B&B Ca' Del Gallo for one night in October. Firstly, the place is extremely difficult to find and this was never mentioned. We spent close to an hour trying to find the place and even locals did not know where it...More

Excellent place. I don't know if this is really how Venetians live but it sure feels authentic.

Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
