Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Giardino Papadopoli is a terraced garden filled with shade trees in the Venetian sestiere of Santa Croce, between the Venezia Santa Lucia train station and Piazzale Roma. Its area is about 8,800 sq. m.

The gardens occupy the lands of the demolished monastery of Santa Croce. The first park was laid out in 1834 by Francesco Bagnara for the owners of the Palazzo Foresti Papadopoli. In 1863, Niccolò and Angelo Papadopoli commissioned Marco Quignon to expand and modify the gardens. A third of its area was destroyed in 1933 when the Rio Novo canal was constructed.

  • In Venice you will not find lots of things that are suitable for small kids. This park is exception it has a small child playground.  more »
  • In a city with very few green spaces all should be appreciated. This is a nice park, surprisingly quiet and well maintained. If you need a corner for time out this is a good spot.  more »
  • Very peaceful place for kids and children. A great family area in the middle of busy Venice. You can relax here under the shades of trees if its very sunny. Atmosphere is friendly lots of police patrol makes u feel safer. We enjoyed the place. Many swings and playing areas for children and kids.
  • Nice sized rooms, great location. Excellent service. Good range of breakfast foods which meant allergies could be worked around.
