Santa Croce is one of the six sestieri of Venice, northern Italy.GeographyIt occupies the north west part of the main islands, and can be divided into two areas: the eastern area being largely mediaeval, and the western - including the main port and the Tronchetto - mostly lying on land reclaimed in the 10th century.The district includes the Piazzale Roma, home to Venice's bus station and car parks, and around which is the only area of the city in which cars can travel. The tourist attractions lie mostly in the eastern part of the quarter, and include the churches of San Nicolo da Tolentino, San Giacomo dell'Orio, and San Zan Degola; the Fondaco dei Turchi; the Museum of the History of Fabric and Costume at Palazzo Mocenigo; the Patrician Palace; and Ca' Corner della Regina.HistoryThe area was once part of the Luprio swamp, but has been steadily reclaimed.It is the area of the city most affected by the opening of the lagoon road in April 1933.

  • While a first impression it seems to us that this sestiere is nothing particular, the truth is that it is a charming neighbourhood, just a few minutes both Piazzale Roma and the railway; We are also a convenient walk from 20 and 25 minutes from the bridge of Rialto and St. Mark's square, respectively. It is an area where we can stay and eat without paying the high prices of San Marcos and surrounding areas and without having to endure the hustle and bustle and crowd of those areas. Also houses many idyllic canals and a large monumental set, highlighting several palaces and churches, such as the Tolentini, San Giacomo dell'Orio or San Stae. Without a doubt, one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city.

  • District that usually crosses over the ponte degli Scalzi to go towards the Center. Less rich in art of others even if there are some beautiful churches and few building including what now houses the Museum of natural history. It is the only district where it circulates as it is here that has been extended part of links with the Mainland making the arrival of the automobile bridge in the 1930s.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
