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.
|Area||8,800 square metres (2.2 acres)|
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.
