Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We made the mistake of booking a small room (it was small!!)
Overall the room was just average, we would not choose this hotel again if back in Venice. It did not feel value for money.
Check in and out was a dream at the sister hotel Ca Nigra just a few metres away. Everything was ready and well organised. It was made clear to us that we were very welcome to use the bar / garden facilities of the sister...More
The hotel is close to the train station so it was very easily accessible. The room was smaller than what we are used in the US but still good enough - very close to the size of cruise room.
