Santa Croce: Venice Hotel Accommodation Guide

Santa Croce

Hotels in Santa Croce West | Hotels in Santa Croce East

Santa Croce is in the north-east of the city and via Piazzale Roma it connects Venice to the mainland. All this area has been subject to many demolitions and transformations, starting in 1810 with the demolition of the church and monastery of of Santa Croce, which gave their name to the district. The Papadopoli Gardens were laid out in the area. These gardens were designed by Bagnara in the English style and they are now open to the public, but have been completely changed.

Like Dorsoduro, Santa Croce has many narrow streets and little channels and is very close to the main important Venice sights, and as San Polo’s sister sestiere is probably the least touristy one in Venice. As a result, it tends not to be so expensive as other areas. Try Campo San Giacomo dell’ Orio in the evening for a couple of great bars and one of the best (and most inexpensive) restaurants in Venice, La Zucca. There are plenty of great pizzerias in Santa Croce, too.
