In the sestiere of Santa Croce, the other Venice among secret gardens and animated courtyards, cherished in the oblivion of the most unique city in the world.Hotel Papadopoli stands on the Tolentini Canal, inside the Papadopoli Gardens, created in 1834 by Francesco Bagnara. It’s a truly enviable location: close to the Canal Grande and the Constitution bridge, an artwork by the famous architect Calatrava, that connects the hotel
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.

My wife and I spent two nights at the Papadopoli in Venice for the middle portion of our honeymoon. We exited the train station, went over the first two bridges on the main 'island' of Venice, and we were already at the hotel.
We spent three days here at the end of our Med. cruise. We were in room 528 on the top floor overlooking the canal. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony taking in the rooftops and views of Venice with the nice complimentary wine, fruit and...More

We arranged for taxi service, which took us by car to the boat dock and then by boat the rest of the way. We used Blitz. They took care of our bags and we drove in first class accommodations. It might be a little pricier than other options, but as I have traveled with my mother(also 75) before I know this is the easiest way and so worth the extra money to me. However, the train station is about a five minute walk from the hotel, but you must go over a bridge and pull your suitcase. Many people do it. Again, I recommend Blitz or another car service
