The standard tourist fare here leaves out the substantial history of Venice as a libertine city of sorts, that was open-minded enough to allow women as well as men to indulge themselves. Venice has so much rich history related to issues of gender and sexuality....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
