Ms Luciana was at the reception of this privately owned hotel as I reached that morning. She spoke very good English and for her age she still had that glint in her eyes and a warm welcoming smile on her face.

Response from gaffaro, Proprietario at Hotel Locanda GaffaroResponded 13 January 2018
Clean rooms and bathroom. Had good breakfast. Host was very kind (our check-in was really odd time). We have to pay city tax 2.5 euros per person per night in cash. It was a pleasant stay and hotel is near canal.
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.
