San Giobbe Campus
Venice School of Management is located in a very strategic position: the Economic Campus of Ca' Foscari University, at San Giobbe.
The campus is a 10-minutes walk from the train station, and 15 minutes from the parking lot of Piazzale Roma, where the bus station is located and all of the cars in Venice park. In addition, the School is very close to Strada Nova, a popular local shopping thoroughfare, with backstreets rich with shops selling crafts and vintage goods. Informal canal-side restaurants and bars line the nearby Fondamenta della Misericordia and Fondamenta dei Ormesini. The stately Ca’ d’Oro palace is in the neighborhood (just 15 minutes walk from the campus) and offers the chance to visit a unique collection of Renaissance art.
Venice School of Management is much more than a place of learning, it is a bridge between ideas and people, where you can embrace new experiences with those who share your innovation mindset. It will be the gateway to begin an exciting journey to explore your full potential.

The Venice factor
Built on the waters of the lagoon, Venice is made up of 119 islands connected to each other by 150 canals and more than 400 bridges. The best known area of Venice is the historic centre crossed by the Grand Canal, which divides it in half. Venice also includes a part of the mainland.
The connection between the city centre and the mainland is via a 4-kilometre-long bridge. Furthermore, Venice includes the islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello, and the Lido.
One of the first things you notice when arriving in Venice are the toponyms, which represent a very independent ecosystem. Here are some keywords that will come in handy for finding your way around the city:
Calle: long and narrow street
Campiello: small square
Fondamenta: street with one side facing a canal
Piazza: used only for Piazza San Marco
Rio Terà: road built over an underground canal
Sotoportego: part of the street that passes under buildings

Giudecca, the largest island in the Venetian lagoon, also belongs to this district.
