Venice city guide

Visit the areas where our apartments are located

Venice is a unique city in the world so magical that it never fails to enchant all its visitors. Its streets, alleys and canals are a must-see and a photographer's paradise. The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site. Located in north-eastern Italy, it has 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by pretty bridges. The romantic 'City of Canals' is divided into six areas or 'Sestieres', located on each side of the Canal Grande. The following areas describe the major areas in which our apartments are situated in the city.

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.  It is the only district of Venice where there is a small zone where you can move around in a vehicle, albeit in a very limited area.

Santa Croce bordered to the south-east with the San Polo district, limited by the Rio di San Stae, the Rio Marin and the first part of the River Frescada, untill the parish of St. Pantalon. To the south it borders with the Dorsoduro district, while in the north it is bounded by the Grand Canal. It connects with the Cannareggio district via the Scalzi Bridge and the Bridge of the Constitution.

Among the churches in the Santa Croce district, there are San Giacomo dell’Orio, San Stae and the Temple of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino.

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. 

The nearest ferry boat stop is Piazzale Roma.
