Nice tour with Nadia, our very friendly guide, especially with children. Learned few facts about how Venice used to be and went on small little streets without tourists. Happy we did it.

We had one afternoon to explore Venice and Nadia’s tour was superb. She took us off the beaten path to explore the history, the people and the culture of her remarkable city. We would have blithely walked by facades of buildings without understanding their significance...More

Santa Croce
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
