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 .

He was so easy and pleasant to be with, very knowledgeable and sensitive to our tastes. He took us to places in Venice we would never have found on our own, not just the Jewish ghetto, which...

He worked with us in planning the best use of our time and went above and beyond with flexibility to ensure we could see as much of Venice as we could.

I signed up for Venice walking tour, a day trip to the Dolomites and also another day out to the countryside. Enjoyed the Venice walking tour the most because I had a fantastic guide - Lorenzo was very... More

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.
