Parking and transportation to Westin Hotel Europa

by aarkof

Can anybody please recommend a parking place in Venice with the following transportation to Westin Hotel Europa (located on Grand Canal)?

Thanks in advance

You can park at the Garage Communale on the right hand side of "Piazzala Roma"
Then take a water taxi to the hotel.

Or a cheaper option would be to take a vaporetto from the parking to the stop nearest to your hotel. Provided you don't have mounds of luggage, you should be able to transport it okay. Haven't looked to see which stop is the closest.....

From Piazzale Roma you travel to your hotel either by Water Taxi (expensive option) or Vaporetto. You can also park at Tronchetto, but you would have to change vaporetto to get to your destination (Not difficult, but a bit more hassle)I've not driven to Venice, so I'm afraid I can't comment on which is the better option for parking (prices/convenience/security etc)

Vaporetto #1 and #2 take you to San Marco Vallaresso stop.(They are circular routes), Check the station is the appropiate one, or you'll be going 'the long way round' Route and direction is shown on the outside of the landing stage, and on maps, and an electronic display board indicates the number and direction of the next vaporetto to arrive, with its expected time of arrival here.

Purchase your ticket (6.50 Euros single journey with one piece of luggage, or you can purchase tickets valid for 12-72 hours)from the kiosk and validate it at the machine near the entrance. You also get a free map of the vaporetto routes here-If you aren't given one, ask.

From the vaporetta stop, you have a short walk to your hotel-the entrance is off the Grand Canal on Core Barozzi.

If you decide to travel by Water Taxi, I'm sure that the hotel could arrange this for you. I'm not sure how near the taxi can get to your hotel-(There is a canal that flows by the end of Core Barozzi) the drivers aren't allowed to transfer your luggage to the hotel (They can't leave their vehicle- but they'll transfer your luggage off the taxi. Again, your hotel can arrange a porter to assist with transporting luggage to the hotel.

The water taxis charge supplements for extra luggage/ time of day, if you call the taxi by phone etc.

If the hotel is arranging the Water Taxi-check the price first, because some taxi firms add a 'mark up'

In January, 10 of us travelled from Marco Polo airport to our hotel near Ferrovia (train station) we booked this in advance on line with www.motoscafivenezia.it (a Co-operative group)and got 10% discount. I was very satisfied with their help in arranging our transfer etc. They have a landing stage at Piazzale Roma.

From Marco Polo to our hotel it cost 270 Euros return. (but this was divided by 10 of us!)Obviously it will be cheaper to travel from P. Roma to San Marco - I think basic fares start at around 35 Euros

Have A Great trip, and please feel free to contact me for more info.

Travel Tips for Venice

Piazza San Marco

by draguza

St. Mark's Square is really the heart of Venice, mostly because of its location on the banks of the grand canal, and because of the great number of beautiful, historical monuments located there. Politically and culturally, St. Mark's Square has always been a very important and strategical area in Venice.

The piazza St. Marco, is the only square that is called a Piazza, the others are simply called "campo". It's much more than a simple city square, it's a symbol. The square is now "covered" with tourists and its famous pigeons which are a very integral part of the site. The square is lined with the buildings called the Procuratia, which housed the offices and apartments of high placed officials in the Venetian government. The "procuratie vecchie" date back to the 9th century, and were rebuilt in the 16th century

Palazzo Barbano and Palazzo Dario

by Fam.Rauca

Palazzo Barbano is an edifice in Gothic style.
It was built middle of the fifteenth century.

Palazzo Dario was built in the year 1487.
It was a building for Giovanni Dario, secretary of the republic in Constantinople.
The original construction was shaped in Gothic style.
Later, Pietro Lombardo created a renaissance fa├žade to the palace.

More Great Architecture

by Goner

This magnificent piece of architecture dates back to 1420. It ws built by a wealthy patrician who hoped it would be the most outstanding palace of Venice. This gothic structure was adorned with gold leaf, vermillion and ultramarine. At one time it was left derelict, but was rescued Franchetti a patron of the arts and it was he who filled this palace with the beautiful art you can see today.

Looking up

by sim1


And don't forget to look up in this city as well! There are so many things to see in this city, but you would miss a lot if you don't take your time to look up once in a while as well. On top of towers, churches and houses you can see many beautiful detailed ornaments.

Living Statues

by msbrandysue

Around St. Mark's Square you will see many living statues. They are available to pose with, but they will expect a tip of any amount when you want to take a picture with them. No more than a few coins, though.

You will see a variety of men, women, and children posing in all sorts of costumes. Some have masks, some are painted faces. They stand on their own platform and have a change box in front of them.
