It was a bit out of the way, but we sure were glad we took the stroll and found this superior gelateria. The flavors were so very inventive! Between the four of us, we had fresh mint, ginger, chocolate, and watermelon, to name a few, but it was tough to choose from the intriguing offerings. The owner was so kind,... More

This is a fantastic place with a lovely owner - clearly some reviewers need better manners. The flavours range from classics to out-of-the-box, both in gelato and sorbetto (although I recommend the mint/ginger convo). We went back every day we were in Venice just because we fell in love with the gelato and the friendliness of the owner - we... More

We were recommended Alaska by our Airbnb host and we're not disappointed! The flavours are unique and fresh, we loved it so much we came back several times a day while we stayed in Venice. The owner is very lovely and generous and welcomed us each day. If you love great gelato you need to try Alaska!

We were both tired after exploring every ' corner' of Venice and just wanted to wander at our leisure around while enjoying a Gelati from the Alaska Gelateria in Santa Croca, 1159, 30135 Venezia, Italy. Before leaving home I had read a glowing report about Carlo's delicious Gelati & Fruit frappe's made from natural products. With the sun on our... More

We wanted to find a very good gelateria so we checked Tripadvisor for advice. The very different opinions about Gelateria Alaska made us curious and we decided to find out for ourselves which of the camps that were right. It was closed the first time we went there but the second time we were lucky and bought 4 gelato with... More

We went to lots of gelaterias in Venice. I would not eat at any that had artificial coloring in their product. This was all natural and no food dyes. The gelato was a little soft but that is what you get for all natural. I would go everyday to have it again! Yummy!!

Sought this establishment on the recommendation of lonely planet, on one of their walking tours with my wife. We were after particular flavours and after exchanging pleasantries with the owner, we said that although everything looked very nice, they're not the flavours we're after. We said goodbye and thank you but he then proceeded to chase us down the street... More

Dont waste your money there! The gelato is very bad, not tasty, very liquid, melting (and it was cold that day) I went to places around there a lot better!

This was neither outstandingly good or bad enough for me to usually write a review, but after reading the scathing criticism of some writers on both TripAdvisor and Yelp, I felt motivated to leap to the defence of 'Alaska'. I visited and chose the Pistachio and Stacciatella flavours. The gelato was nice - it tasted fresh and was clearly made... 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.
