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. As part of San Polo, this district belonged formerly to the area called Luprio, where there were numerous salt marshes. During the twentieth century this area, more than any other, has been the impact of the road link between Venice and the mainland, first with the construction of the port and then with the creation of the Piazzale Roma, the opening of the Rio Novo and the construction of the Tronchetto’s artificial island (the second car terminal), all direct consequences of the construction of the Ponte della Libertà/Liberty Bridge in 1933, which transformed the northern part of the district in the car terminal and in the bus station in of the lagoon city. This is the only district of Venice where there is a small area where you can move with the vehicles, albeit in a very limited way.
The apartment is therefore in a strategic location, being close to the main points of connection between the city and the mainland.
Among the churches in the Santa Croce district, there are San Giacomo dell’Orio, San Stae and the Temple of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino. We should also mention the ones consecrated to San Simeon: church of San Simeon Grando, or the Prophet, and church of San Simeon Piccolo. Contrary to what you might think, these adjectives simply reflect the importance of the saints whom they are dedicated and not the size of the buildings themselves: in fact, the church of San Simeon Grando is much smaller than the monumental one of San Simeon Piccolo.
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. Then there is the Fontego dei Turchi, which was once the warehouse where the Ottoman merchants could download their wares in Venice, today house of the Museum of Natural History, where you can see two complete skeletons of dinosaurs found during a scientific expedition funded by the Venetian businessman Giancarlo Ligabue.
The nearest ferry boat stop is Piazzale Roma.
