better transportation from malpensa airport to santa lucia

by marijohn2

Hello I will arrive to Malpensa airport at November 2009. Which is the best way to go at the hotel I've booked, which is near Santa Lucia station? Should I take the water taxi or the train ? What are the rates for these two options?
Please help me.

You cannot take a water taxi from Milan Malpensa is nowhere near the Venetian canals (or Venice). I am not sure if you realise that Malpensa is so far from Venice.

Or do you mean Venice Marco Polo?

From Malpensa:

First, you must get from Malpensa to Milan itself, and to Milan Centrale station. The easiest way to do this is to take the airport bus, which stops at the station. Details of all public transport from Malpensa in English here:

Click 'connections' on the left-hand menu, then on 'by bus'.

Then take the train from Milan Centrale to Venice Santa Lucia station.

Train times, details and fares in English here:

Journey time is around 2.5 hours.

From Marco Polo:

If you are arriving at Venice Marco Polo, then your journey is very easy. Simply take the airport bus from directly outside arrivals (buses are frequent, buy tickets from the machine by the bus stop, one-way fare around 3 euro). Timetables here:

The bus will terminate in Piazzale Roma, in Venice. To get to Santa Lucia you simply walk across the new bridge..less than 5 minutes' walk.

No need to take water-taxis (which are extremely expensive) and no need at all to take the more expensive vaperetto boat from the airport.

Travel Tips for Venice



Venice is an incredable site in October on a sunny Sunday when people are out for their Sunday walk. If you decide to explore the streets of Venice on a cloudy day beware. To do this you need a very good map of the city , not just a tourist type map. You also have to pay attention to the street names and make sure you know where you are. Otherwise you can become lost in 15 minutes, and it may take you a few hours to get out. This happens to a lot of people.

One of the best experiences in...

by Deborah_Bagg

One of the best experiences in Venice is just walking around. I found this wonderful produce and seafood market near the Rialto Bridge. They have the best seafood I have ever seen. Wonderful textures and freshly caught marine delights!

If you like churches – get the Chorus pass

by Trekki

Again, depending on how long you will be in Venice and what you like to see, the Chorus Pass might be of interest for you. It costs only 8 Euro (as of May 2007) and allows you free entrance into 16 churches on Venice’s main islands (S.M. = Santa Maria):

Cannaregio: S.M. dei Miracoli, Madonna dell’Orto, Sant’Alvise, San Giobbe;
San Marco: S.M. del Giglio, Santo Stefano;
Castello: San Pietro di Castello, Santa Maria Formosa;
Giudecca: Santissimo Redentore;
San Polo: San Giovanni Elemosinario, San Polo, S.M. Gloriosa dei Frari;
Santa Croce: San Giacomo dall’Orio, San Stae;
Dorsoduro: S.M. del Rosario (Gesuati), San Sebastiano.

The pass is not including the following churches:
Basilica San Marco, Santa Maria della Salute, and San Giorgio de Maggiore (on Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore)

But if you want to visit more than 3 of the a.m. churches, the pass pays off already. Single entry for all these 16 churches is 2,50 Euro. However, if you intend to buy the Venice Card Orange (2 or 7 days), you won’t need the Chorus Pass, as these 16 churches are included in the Orange Card.
Again, this is a simple price calculation and consideration of interests. Who won’t spend too much time in museums but likes to visit churches, lives cheaper when buying the Blue Card and the Chorus Pass.
The Chorus Pass, by the way, is valid for 1 year. It can be purchased at every church with the red Chorus sign.

Discounts or special deals:
Students up to 29 (with ID card): 5 €;
Family pass (2 adults and children up to age of 18): 16 €;

Opening hours of the churches:
Monday to Saturday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Even in Venice...Just The Transport is Different

by tpal

I am sure you have been told that everything in Venice moves by boat and ultimately this probably is correct. But, not everything at every point along the way travels on the water. Case in point are these unfortunate but none the less indispensable necessities.

As we walked along a narrow calle in the eastern end of Cannaregio we began to pass the open doorways to many small woodworking workshops. Just ahead we were startled to see what appeared to be two unattended departed souls. With some relief we realized that the caskets were, in fact, new (and unused) and parked outside a local casket shop. No bronze sarcophagi these. These were finely crafted, hand made and wooden. Beautifully finished and ready for delivery...via hand cart.

Pack Lightly! I repeat...Pack Lightly!

by jemcat

Warning! Do not take a huge heavy suitcase like I did. Lugging a 50lb bag from the train to the bus stop over the bridges to your hotel isn't fun. Remember, you will have lots of stuff to take back too. Light & heavy clothing required. Good walking shoes. Bring your own washcloth.
