Santa Croce

 

 

What to see…

  1. Campo San Giacomo da L’Orio, shaded by tree areas and speckled with typical red benches, this campo is lively and active. it’s a perfect place for children to play in and it’s also an oasis for relaxing in the hot summer mornings. This place won’t disappoint you if you’re looking for an authentic Venice!
  2. Museo di Storia Naturale is all the more striking because it is located in a beautiful palazzo known as Fontego dei Turchi. It comprises more than two million scientific pieces and the exhibition layout combines “old fashioned” halls with highly innovative and interactive galleries. Very appreciated by children!
  3. Chiesa di San Nicolò da Tolentino has a neoclassical façade and the school of architecture of the Università di Venezia is housed in the adjacent former monastery. The funeral monument fo Giovanni Francesco Morosini, the patriarch who died in 1678, is one of the grandest Baroque example in Venice.

 

Where to stop…

  1. Osteria Al Nono Risorto is characterized by a wonderful pergola where in summer  makes every meal a relaxing break.  Loved by Venetians its menu offers traditional Venetian dishes and a very good pizza.
  2. Osteria La Zucca, with its menu of seasonal vegetarian creations and classic meat dishes, this small cozy restaurant could be a great choice for an excellent alternative dinner. In summer book ahead for one of the few outside tables.
  3. Bacareto da Lele, close to Piazzale Roma, this  amazing little bàcaro is unique! You have to try it.
