If you're staying in a hotel in Mestre, don't use the ACTV buses to travel into Venice. Those buses are all crowded and full of pick-pockets. Take the train instead. It's safer and cheaper. Se hai preso una camera in un albergo a Mestre, non...More

We bought a 3 day ticket and it was the worst decision in Venice. These 1950s boats are not regulated by any maritime law, passengers are packed like sardines (there is no limit of passengers and people just keep on pushing in), they are improperly...More

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
