Hotels in Santa Croce


View Larger Map

If you're arriving or departing at the Santa Lucia Railroad Station, the Piazzale Roma (airport buses and taxis), the Marittima cruise basin, or the Tronchetto parking garage, there's a good chance that you'll stay (or should at least consider staying) at a hotel in Venice's sestiere of Santa Croce.

The satellite image above shows why: Santa Croce starts just below or to the right of the Piazzale Roma (lower left corner of photo), then follows the curve of the Grand Canal almost to the Calle dei Botteri (right side). From either the traffic hub of Piazzale Roma or the train station, it's a fairly short walk to most hotels in Santa Croce. A few are on the Piazzale Roma or almost directly across the Grand Canal from the railroad station via the Scalzi Bridge.

The sestiere of Santa Croce has a varied urban landscape, from the 19th or early 20th residential districts across from the station to tiny, ancient neighborhood squares and grandiose palazzi facing the Grand Canal.

In the navigation tables below, we've placed the sestiere's hotels in three groups:

  • Piazzale Roma refers to hotels that are on or next to Venice's main point of entry for buses, taxis, and the People Mover tram from Tronchetto.

  • Grand Canal includes waterfront hotels along the canale's curve from just east of the Piazzale Roma to the border of San Polo.

  • Slightly inland describes hotels that are tucked into the district's streets and back alleys away from the water, but still within easy walking distance of the Piazzale Roma and the train station.
