The San Polo and Santa Croce District, bordered by the Grand Canal, are among the smallest on the island of Venezia and both take their name from the churches present within them.

The San Polo and Santa Croce District

It seems that the first inhabitants settled on a group of islets, when in the eleventh century, there were born the first markets and the district became the commercial heart of Venezia.

The San Polo and Santa Croce District

San Polo is still today one of the most lively and characteristic districts (sestieri) of the city, in fact, among the many streets we find outdoor markets, shops, bacari (as the local pubs are called), as well as being also the center of the city's financial activities.
