Practicalities // Arriving in Venice
THE PORT OF VENICE
Venice Port (Venice Terminal Passeggeri) is located on the northern part of the city, within easy reach from Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto. The port is connected to the city centre by private watertaxies or regular shuttleboats to San Marco operated by "Alilaguna".

BY CAR
If you are driving to Venice, once you have crossed the causeway you reach Piazzale Roma, the car and bus terminal. Here you can find several options to park your car (public or private car parks) or you may proceed to the nearby Tronchetto car park. If you are staying on Lido, a public car ferry connects the island from Tronchetto. Both Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto are served by private water-taxies and public transportation.

BY TRAIN
If you arrive in Venice by train, wait until the train has crossed the causeway on the lagoon and reached the final stop "Venezia Santa Lucia". Venice Railway Station is situated right in the island city and as you leave the station you will be right on the Grand Canal. There you can easily make your way to a private watertaxi or the ACTV stops where you can take a "vaporetto" (the public waterbus).
