San Polo & Santa Croce
Campo San Polo and its church give the name to the district, the biggest open space after Saint Mark. It’s picturesque also for the presence of many house-warehouses typical of the glorious trading past that continues somehow today. The typical venetian taverns called bacari are waiting for you to chill out tasting their savory finger-food and relishing a good glass of wine. The Rialto area is well-known to be the most crowded of the district due to the daily fish and veggie market. It’s chaotic and hectic sometimes but this still reminds us the importance of the historical trading center it was and still remains one of the most characteristic area of the city. In Rialto area you can enjoy unleashing in shopping activities!!!!!
Santa Croce district is the less extended and owes its name to the eponymous demolished church. The district has undergone (during XXth century) the impact of the building of connecting constructions between Venice and the mainland; beginning with the Marine Station, then the area of Piazzale Roma and the building of the automotive bridge of Liberty in 1933. In Santa Croce there is the only city area where buses and cars can arrive, in a limited way. The most prestigious private mansions are on the Grand Canal; among them Ca’ Pesaro, museum of International Modern Art and Oriental Art, together with Fontego dei Turchi, the Natural History Museum.
