Seeing Venice from the water is the best way to experience it, and being in Gianluca's topo was a delight! A gondola is lovely, but in the motorboat you can cover much more ground and see many different parts of the city. Would definitely do...More

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
