How to go to Venice?

This post was created especially at the request of my readers, as many asked me the same questions: “How do I go to Venice?” or “How to get to Venice?” and also “What is the most economical transport to get to Venice?” and finally “How do I get around in Venice?”. Quickly, I will try to answer all your questions in this post, if you have any question just leave a comment that I will answer soon 🙂 Let’s learn now: how to go to Venice? But first, a brief summary of what Venice is.  Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

The city of Venice is a small but famous city of 260,000 inhabitants located in northeastern Italy. Contrary to what many people think, Venice is not an island, it is, rather, a group of more than 100 small islands that are surrounded by its famous canals and connected by charming bridges. The so-called Serenissima is the type of city that invites us to want to stay there forever, so be sure to visit this beautiful city, O.K.? Basically we can reach Venice in 4 ways. Find out here How to get to the islands of Venice? and What is “high water” in Venice?

1) How to go to Venice? BY TRAIN

By train you will arrive at Venezia Santa Lucia Railway Station, which is at the entrance to Venice. From the station you can go: walking, but be prepared to go up and down numerous steps; use the vaporetto (public transport in Venice), which work like a water bus or with a private taxi. Read this special post “How do I get from Venezia Santa Lucia Station to my hotel in Venice?” and get to know all the options in detail.

Another detail worth mentioning: get ready because, generally, the regional railway trains are very bad and sometimes very dirty, so don’t raise high expectations! If you use the train, always choose the high speed train to avoid this type of problem. OK.? To understand the differences in trains, see this post: What is the difference between trains in Italy?

Tip

2) How to go to Venice? BY CAR

Arriving in Venice we will have to drop you off at Piazzale Roma which is located 5 minutes from Venezia Santa Lucia Train Station (just across a bridge). Piazzale Roma is the gateway (land) of Venice, so if you arrive with a taxi, car or bus, you will always reach Piazzale Roma, and from there you will have to move on foot or with a water transport (vaporetto or private transport that will take you very close to your hotel).

Tip

  • Parking at Piazzale Roma costs an average of 30 Euros a day, I always advise leaving the car in Venezia Mestre, a city next to Venice, and from there take a bus that usually passes every 20 minutes and will take you to Piazzale Rome (ticket costs 2 Euros on average). Do that if you want to save, obviously with this scheme you end up wasting time, so you must evaluate if it is worth it.

Traveling by car in Italy

3) How to go to Venice? BY SHIP

The port is also located close to Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia Station and from there we have water transport that runs throughout Venice or land transport that always takes you to Piazzale Roma.

4) How to go to Venice? BY AIRPLANE

The airport is Marco Polo. Arriving at Marco Polo Airport you will have several options to go to the Center of Venice. Read here “How to get from Marco Polo Airport to Venice Center?” and get know all the options of means of transport.

Hotels I recommend in the San Marco area

San Marco is the most famous neighborhoods of Venice and, at some times of the year, it is difficult to walk around, because the city is crowded.

Hotels I recommend in Castello Area

Castello is the largest of all the “sestieri” (neighborhoods) and has an incredible waterside for good walks, in addition to being full of cafes, bars and shops. They are not cheap places to stay, but it facilitates access to the most famous tourist spots and, with that, saves on transportation, as it is possible to do everything on foot!

Hotels I recommend in Cannaregio or Dorsoduro Area

Hotels I recommend in the San Polo Area

San Polo is ideal if you want something comfortable, close to some sights, but more modest. I think this neighborhood is a great position so I recommend it a lot.

Hotels I recommend in the Santa Croce Area

Don’t want to stay on the island? No problems! Search for Mestre, Campalto or Favaro Veneto, which are the mainland cities of Venice and offer excellent accommodation options. A little further from Piazzale Roma, about 20 minutes by water transport, they do not have magnificent views from the bedroom windows, but it is ideal for those who want to save on accommodation.

Tips

  • The tip to save A LOT is to book your hotel in advance.
  • As we also mentioned: beware of excess baggage! It is very complicated to get around with large volumes in Venice because of the bridges, stairs and narrow streets.
