San Polo - Santa Croce

Enclose by the wide loop of the Grand Canal, San polo is Venice’s smallest sestiere but it includes the most lively part of Venice: Rialto.

According to the tradition Rialto, since remotest time, was one of the oldest centres of life in the Venetian islands, where the first inhabitants, having escaped from the mainland, availing themselves the firmer and higher soil –and therefore safe from floods – concentrate their trade.

Rialto was the most important centre of the new group of islands, and Rivo Altus, the ancient name, was indeed the name of the whole town until after the year 1000, when it eventually took the name of Venice. In the northwest of Venice it covers 94 acres.

It has two very distinct areas; the eastside is very old and typically Venetian; a walk down here takes away from crowds.

During the last two centuries some industrial complex have appeared near the old buildings, and in some cases have replaced them.

Nowadays is commercially important because it links Venice to the mainland, even if this is not very important for the inhabitants that feel good only by water and that think that beyond the Ponte della Libertà, the car bridge that brings to the mainland, there is only...countryside!
