This was our second stay at this hotel. We had a room facing the Grand Canal. The view was very picturesque, and to be on the Grand Canal, not as crowded as spots closer to the Rialto bridge. Restaurants and shopping was nearby and we...More
This small but typically Venetian jewelry-box of a hotel is situated in Santa Croce, across the Grand Canal from Santa Lucia train station. Far from the maddening crowds it is still only a pleasant 20 minute stroll from Rialto bridge, with St Mark's square not...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.
