The district of Santa Croce owes its name to the church of Santa Croce, an important place of worship demolished after the suppression of Napoleon. As part of San Polo, this district belonged formerly to the area called Luprio, where there were numerous salt marshes. During the twentieth century this area, more than any other, has been the impact of the road link between Venice and the mainland, first with the construction of the port and then with the creation of the Piazzale Roma, the opening of the Rio Novo and the construction of the Tronchetto’s artificial island (the second car terminal), all direct consequences of the construction of the Ponte della Libertà/Liberty Bridge in 1933, which transformed the northern part of the district in the car terminal and in the bus station in of the lagoon city. This is the only district of Venice where there is a small area where you can move with the vehicles, albeit in a very limited way.

The apartment is therefore in a strategic location, being close to the main points of connection between the city and the mainland.

Among the churches in the Santa Croce district, there are San Giacomo dell’Orio, San Stae and the Temple of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino. We should also mention the ones consecrated to San Simeon: church of San Simeon Grando, or the Prophet, and church of San Simeon Piccolo. Contrary to what you might think, these adjectives simply reflect the importance of the saints whom they are dedicated and not the size of the buildings themselves: in fact, the church of San Simeon Grando is much smaller than the monumental one of San Simeon Piccolo.

The most valuable buildings are located along the Grand Canal. Among these, there is Ca' Pesaro, home to the Museum of Oriental Art and of the International Gallery of Modern Art, which exhibits significant works of great composers, including Gustav Klimt, Wassily Kandinsky and Matisse. Then there is the Fontego dei Turchi, which was once the warehouse where the Ottoman merchants could download their wares in Venice, today house of the Museum of Natural History, where you can see two complete skeletons of dinosaurs found during a scientific expedition funded by the Venetian businessman Giancarlo Ligabue.

The nearest ferry boat stop is Piazzale Roma.

Good location, convenient, clean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment in Venice. We found the location to be convenient, Short walk to the Grand Canal and transportation, short walk to restaurants and grocery store.. The apartment was basic, clean, comfortable and rather spacious, it fit our family of six well.

Only constructive criticism I would offer is that kitchen could have been better equipped. We ate dinner in two nights, limited pots and pans etc. The frypans provided did not work with the Induction cooktop. There are signs hanging on the wall threatening fines if you’re loud or if you mess with the thermostat but I could’ve used a sign in the kitchen instruct me how to use an induction cooktop (I never used one before).

The reservation office was about a 10 minute walk from the apartment, it was convenient to leave bags there prior to being able to check in. They do charge 4€/bag.

Elegant apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was very nicely done. The furnishings and decor were very elegant. The 8 person table was a great bonus. The kitchen looked brand new. The only negatives were that there was really only beds for 6, not 8. The L couch in the living room didn't pull out, so fitting 2 teenagers in our group on it was a challenge. Also, the recycling system was challenging to figure out. But, overall, it was a great location with good restaurants and a grocery store very close by.

The apartment is easily accessible from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia Station and will give you the opportunity to visit Venice at 360 °. It is located in Sestiere di Santa Croce, bordering south and east with the San Polo sestiere, having as limit the Rio of San Stae, Rio Marin and the first part of Rio de Frescada, to the parish of San Pantalon. To the south it is bordered by the Dorsoduro district while in the north it is bounded by the Grand Canal in Cannaregio and is connected via the Scalzi Bridge and the Bridge of the Constitution. The Santa Croce district owes its name to the church of Santa Croce, an important place of worship demolished after the suppression of Napoleon. As part of San Polo, this district once belonged to that Luprio area, where there were numerous saline. During the twentieth century this area, more than any other, has suffered the impact of the road link between Venice and the mainland, first with the construction of the port and then with the creation of the Piazzale Roma, the opening of the Rio Novo and the construction of the artificial island-parking Tronchetto, all direct consequences of the automobile bridge construction of Freedom in 1933, which transformed the northern part of the district in the car terminal and bus terminal in Venice. This is the only district of the lagoon city where there is a small area where you can move with the vehicles, albeit in a very limited way.

The apartment is therefore in a strategic location, being in the vicinity of the various points of connection between the city and the mainland.

Among the churches in the district, noteworthy are San Giacomo dell'Orio, San Stae and the temple of St. Nicholas of Tolentino. We should also mention the two consecrated in San Simeon: one is called the San Simeon Grando or Prophet, the other San Simeon Piccolo. Contrary to what one might think, these adjectives only reflect the size of its saints who are dedicated and not the size of the buildings themselves: in fact the San Simeon Grando church is much smaller than that, monumental, San Simeon Little.

The most valuable buildings are located along the Grand Canal. Among these most important of Ca 'Pesaro, which houses the Oriental Art Museum and the international modern art gallery which displays important works by great composers, including Gustav Klimt, Wassily Kandinsky and Matisse. Then there is the Fontego dei Turchi, once the store at which the Ottoman merchants were able to load their wares in Venice, nowadays seat of the Natural History Museum, where you can also see two complete skeletons of dinosaurs found during a scientific expedition financed by 'Venetian Giancarlo Ligabue entrepreneur.

The nearest water bus stop is Piazzale Roma.
