Slightly off the beaten tourist track of the more well known galleries and the cathedral this is a real gem. Take the 10 minute walk south east from the cathedral to find a wonderful set of frescos, tributes to Galileo and Michelangelo, stunning Renaissance works...More

One of the 6 areas of Venice and once away from the mass transport hub that is Piazzale Roma, it is one of the quieter areas in Venice, home to numerous churches and quiet back streets. If you just want to get lost and explore...More

The sculptures in the church are amazing, a true testimony to the accomplishments of many of the people buried here and of the respect they earned. Of course, the most spectacular, at least to me, is the sculpture marking the grave of Michelangelo. However, others...More

Santa Croce is a laid-back area in Venice with a strong local vibe. It is not "proliferated" with tourists and this square is home to casual eateries serving local and global cuisine. On the Grand Canal, the imposing Fondaco dei Turchi features exhibits on natural...More

Santa Croce is a beautiful neighborhood only a few blocks from Piazza Roma. The neighborhood has less traffic. It is one of my favorite areas to stay in.

This 'Pantheon of Italian Greats' was amazing. While not as large as St Peter's Basilica in Rome or St. John Lateran, of course, it was huge and impressive. It preserves the memory of greats like Dante, Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Rossini and even Marconi. The statues,...More

With the bus and train station close by you just can't miss with this neighborhood. Much slower pace than the tourist types and a lot more local feeling . This is where I'd stay because it's always easy to find and get back too ....More

This has to be my favorite area in Venice. It's far away from the crowded streets and silly shops (near Rialto and San Marco). It's close to the train station and Piazalle Roma but if you walk a few minutes over the bridge it's very...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

We took the airport express bus. Bought a return ticket so was already there for the way back and caught the bus just outside the main entrance of the airports.
