We did the back streets of the jewish ghotto and Igor arranged for a guide specializing in art history (Davide) to take us through the Doge's Palace and cathedral. We did an additional tour... More

Igor was recommended by my brother, a travel blogger for a blog called the Wright Route. He was fantastic. He showed us all the cool spots out of reach of tourists and knew so much of the history of Venice. His enthusiasm made it a pleasure to be in his company and walking around. He made things extra personal by... More

We were a family of three and we hired them for the Island tour of Morano, Burano and torchello. Our tour guide was Lorenzo, and he is one of the nicest people I've met in my life. A truly genuine, honest and warm person. Firstly, he was very organised and had complete knowledge about Venice. On the way to the... More

Brilliant walking tour . Our guide quickly assessed our physical capabilities , and interests and didn't hurry us .We were not pressured to buy at the wonderful artisan shops where we saw amazing skills demonstrated . We stopped en route for snacks and wine in a typical bar . The best excursion of our 14 day cruise .

Our tour guide, Lorenzo, made our three hours with him some of the most memorable experiences of our entire three weeks in Italy.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
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.
