  • Santa Croce unlike San Marco belongs to a greater extent than the Venetian. Here is considerably less prominent churches and palazzos, but wonderful Chamber of pedestrian streets, good restaurants and cafes. Be sure to stroll around Santa Croce!

  • Of course, tourists arriving in Venice for the first time, yes even on the few days, did not get to Santa Croce. It is a pity, because the architecture of almost equal the Center and far fewer tourists here and walk a lot calmer and nicer.

  • Santa Croce has a little more to offer than just the port. It run away from the port, but this area is hardly any tourists, although there are also nice little alley.
