We had been to St Marks before but didn't remember much about it so decided to take Veneto's St Mark's Cathedral and the Cloister of St Apollonia tour. While the tour was only an hour, our guide Celine share so much information about the history of the building down to where some of the materials for the floors came from.... More

We had the most wonderful time with Miriam on our Prosecco tour. She even shipped 12 bottles of prosecco/wine we purchased throughout the day back to the US for us for a reasonable shipping rate. I would absolutely recommend this tour to all of my family and friends. It was a highlight of our trip to Italy.

My wife and I had a great day with Miriam guiding us on a Prosecco tour. We visited two top quality wineries staff was friendly and informative about the wines. Lunch was top quality at a restaurant featuring beautiful views. Miriam's knowledge of the area and the wines was excellent. This was an outstanding day and an outstanding experience.

Mirium picked us up at Piazalle Roma in a comfortable air conditioned sedan. Prosecco is about an hour drive from Venice. We visited a small family owned vineyard in the morning, touring the operations, and enjoyed a fabulous tasting of both sparkling and still wines. We stopped at a beautiful waterfall and historic flour mill on the way to lunch... More

Miriam was a disappointment on many levels. My husband had arranged this tour with Miriam many months before arriving in Venice. We were very specific about what we would like to see and had read extensively about Palladio. I have an MA in fine art and a minor in art history so this experience was to fulfill my interest in...

Miriam was incredibly accommodating to our vegan diet! She went out of her way to research and provide. She took us on a special hiking excursion through the Dolomites! She was super knowledgeable and made for easy conversation. We could not recommend her enough! Thank you, Miriam!

Miriam was excellent. My wife and I were in Venice and really wanted to go and see the Dolomites. Miriam came highly recommended, so we took the advice of the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Miriam was friendly, informative and took us on an all day tour of the Dolomites. If we're ever in Venice again, we'll definitely be looking to... More

Miriam's tour of wine country was one of our favorite activities in Europe. We visited a small Valpolicella winery where one of the brothers who owns it took us behind the scenes to his cellar and explained how his wine is made. Tasting was in a room filled with large windows overlooking the surrounding hills. For lunch had the best... More

In short, I want to give Miriam's Prosecco tour into the Veneto my highest rating. Our day in the Veneto was one of the high points in our week-long visit to Venice. Miriam picked us up right on time at the Piazzale Roma as planned and we drove off into the Veneto. We passed the country villas of the wealthy... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
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 universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
