transportation to cruise pier

by Naunie5x

Does anyone have any information on getting from Rialto to the cruise ship pier for a reasonable amount of money?

Re: transportation to cruise pier

You will need to find out exactly where your ship is berthed. Use the search facility (in English) here:

For Marittima, the vaporetto 1 or 2 direct to Piazzale Roma, then walk or take a (land) taxi from there (P. Roma is where the road ends in Venice). It's a shortish walk (say, 15 minutes) or drive (a couple of minutes). There may be a free shuttle bus in operation, or bus 6 stops at the port entrance.

There is also a direct Alilaguna boat but it goes from San Marcoso may not be worthwhile.

Vaporetto timetable and fares in English here:

For San Basilio dock: vaporetto line 2

Alternatively, you could take an expensive water-taxi all the way to either...but it will be expensive.

When we were there (April 2008), there was a water bus route from St. Marks to the cruise ship dock. We had to pay cash for it as they didn't take credit cards, but I think it was only about 11€ each round trip.

We did walk from the ship to Pz Roma where our hotel was and it wasn't a long walk, but with luggage it took a longer time. I stopped to rest several times and what should have been maybe a 20 minute walk took me 45 minutes.

The boat from San Marco to Marittima (Linea M) is operated by Alilaguna rather than ACTV, who operate the vaporetti. It does not run all year round, so best to check timetables etc here (in English):

Travel Tips for Venice

Put away the map and go.............

by sgny

Once you see the standards....... Rialto Bridge, Grand Canal, St. Marks Square and its museums, churches etc., put your map away and just explore. I've read this tip several times on this site and could not agree more. Walk and discover. Just remember where your hotel is. Miss it all.

Palazzo Cavalli & Santa Maria della Salute

by danmcf

Here's the view looking down the Grand Canal from atop the Accademia bridge.
The closest structure is the Palazzo Franchetti Cavalli. It once belonged to Archduke Frederick of Austria, who died here in 1836.
Next in line is the Palazzo Barbaro where Monet & Whistler once painted and Henry James wrote 'The Aspern Papers'.
Off in the distance on the Dorsoduro side of the canal is Santa Maria della Salute. This church was built to commemorate the end of the 1630 plague.

a part from the usual piazza...

by utttz

a part from the usual piazza S.Marco, canal grande, ponte di rialto, ponte dei sospiri and the other usual destinations, the great in venice is just to walk around... and in this way you can also enjoy the greatness of venice. living in a fantastic apartment near fondamenta nuove while reharsing a show for the biennale...


by DAO

Looking a complete idiot in Venice seems to be a full time occupation for some tourists. Please think about what, or is some cases who you look like. There could be a VT member there with a camera, fighting to hold it steady as they laugh out loud. Besides, big hair went out in the 1960’s!

An Alternative to a Gondola

by keeweechic

A cheap (and more entertaining) alternative to the traditional gondola ride is to hop on a traghetto or traghetti (meaning ferry). For a reasonable amount you can take a cruise across the Grand Canal as the locals do. This is the only place they are used.
