This is the San Polo & Santa Croce chapter from Lonely Planet’s Venice & the Vene-to guidebook.

So this is how Venice lives when it’s not busy entertaining. These twin sestieri are a warren of winding lanes in which you can easily lose yourself for hours browsing artisan studios and neighbourhood churches, before emerging in sunny campi (squares).

  • see lightning strike indoors at lavish Scuola Grande di San Rocco, where Tintoretto’s streaky brushwork illuminated hope in a time of plague, death and despair
  • maps
  • watch Titian’s red-hot Madonna light up cavernous I Frari, lined with fanciful memorials to the city’s politicians and artists
  • transport
  • work up a serious appetite over lagoon surf and turf at gut-rumbling, produce-bursting Ri-alto Market
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping.
