Booked 30 minute tour with serenade. It was a group of 6 boats with 6 passengers on each gondola and one singer for the 6 boats. 3rd couple in line so you thought that would have guaranteed the one good couple seat but no we...More
Prebooked Gondola tour for 1530. Arrived to a line of apx. 20 people. Due to wet weather, less Gondolas were operating (only 5) and they sit six customers. The staff spoke very little English and came across as rude and unsympathetic. When gondolas arrived, if...More

I called Agenzia Gondolieri Travel and booked a 60 minute Gondola ride for 6 people. The price was good. The ride was good too along the Grand Canal and into some small canals. The one complaint we had was that our Gondola Driver didn't stop...More

I booked a gondola serenade in advance before my trip. This place was a bit hard to get to, but would be easier for someone in that neighborhood. When we arrived there was a large line and it appeared everyone had reservations. When booking this...More
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 neighborhood identity.
