What a wonderful place to stay! Daniella was the perfect host, giving us great directions and recommendations. It is an easy walk from the train station (if you can handle the stairs over the bridge), yet it is not in a very touristy area. Walking around the neighborhood, we felt we were surrounded by locals and not tourists. The bed... More

I stayed here in November, and loved it! Daniella was a superb, friendly host and her detailed map helped us to understand the ferries - and her restaurant recommendations were spot on (La Zucca is excellent!!). We loved the location as it was easy to get to from the Plaza Roma where the airport shuttles goes and also close to... More

You couldn't ask for a better hostess! We arrived and she had a map of the city and spent half an hour explaining the vaporetto system, pointing out her favorite restaurants, and giving us information about the main sightseeing spots. The room and bathroom were spotless, quiet, and private and breakfast the next morning was delicious- homemade cakes, jams, rolls... More

Our stay with Danielle was delightful. You couldn't ask for a better host. She was helpful, hospitable, and effervescent. She seemed to take delight in hosting travelers and we felt not only taken care of, but cared about. Her second floor home was clean, spacious, comfortable, and warmly decorated. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was ample and... More

We found this place online in a review of ANOTHER B&B. The reviewer was sent to Al Gallion for breakfast and said it was better than her B&B. So we booked Al Gallion instead of the other place. Glad we did. Exceptional value, service, location, etc. Newly remodeled, but shared baths in some rooms (the only negative). Hostess couldn't have... More

We only had a night with Daniela and I've not a lot of experience with B and B's, preferring the anonymity that comes with staying in a hotel; but really this B and B was perfect. As first-timers to Venice it was nice to get local advice about the city - in particular recommended restaurants. (In a way it reminded... More

The B&B is well located next to train and bus station, in a quiet area where you can easily reach on foot the main atractions. Daniela is an warm and friendly host, who prepares a useful map with indications and excellent breakfasts with homemade jam. I definetly recommend this place.

This was our second trip to Venice and we enjoyed staying at the Al Gallion B&B. The location was good, and I would recommend it for someone who is visiting Venice for a first time and enjoys walking through the city. It is in a quiet/residential feeling neighboorhood, but within a 15 minute walk from the train and bus stations.... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood identity.
