What a wonderful place to stay! Daniella was the perfect host, giving us great directions and recommendations. It is an easy walk from the train station (if you can handle the stairs over the bridge), yet it is not in a very touristy area. Walking...More
I stayed here in November, and loved it! Daniella was a superb, friendly host and her detailed map helped us to understand the ferries - and her restaurant recommendations were spot on (La Zucca is excellent!!). We loved the location as it was easy to...More
You couldn't ask for a better hostess! We arrived and she had a map of the city and spent half an hour explaining the vaporetto system, pointing out her favorite restaurants, and giving us information about the main sightseeing spots. The room and bathroom were...More

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.
