Venice transportation Summary

by venice2009

Please give your opinion as to this plan:

1. After arrival into Venice, walk to P. Roma and take the water bus to P San Marco. Possibly take return or walk back.
2. The next morning, overnight on ship, take the Aliguna waterbus with luggage to P. San Marco and then on to our hotel.
3. The following day, take the Aliguna waterbus to the airport from P. San Marco.

1. You can easily walk from P Roma to P San Marco in around 25 minutes. The route is signed, although a map is extremely useful in Venice. So I'd waslk both ways, personally, taking a different route each time....... unless you have a burning desire to spend 6.50 euro each for one vaporetto (waterbus) trip.

Walking both ways that evening wil help you to get your bearings and thus maximise the rest of your time in the city.

2. With luggage, taking the vaporetto (not Alilaguna but ACTV: they run the vaporetti within the city) from your ship to San Marco makes sense.

3. If you are happy to take the Alilaguna waterbus to the airport, rather than take the ordinary land bus from P Roma, then yes....that's fine. The land bus means a walk with luggage or a vaporetto fare to P Roma from San Marco, so the waterbus fare is probably worthwhile.

The Alilaguna site is not functioning properly at the moment, so I can't find the fare for you. http://www.alilaguna.it/

I agree with Leics on points 1 and 2 - #1 taking the walk both ways when you arrive will help you get your bearings. #2 The Alilaguna fare from the port to San Marco is the same as the vaparetto, E6.50, but it goes via the Giudecca Canal rather than the Grand Canal. It's worthwhile to take the ride down the Grand Canal. Use line #2 as it make fewer stops than the #1 and is a little faster.

I had suggested the Alilaguna to the airport as being a good alternative, as using the vaparetto and bus is E9.50 while the Alilaguna is E13, only a little more expensive and eliminates the concern and time involved in making the connections. The ORO (gold) line is the most direct and fastest to the airport. You can see all this info on the veniceforvisitors site I mentioned yesterday. The link to the Alilaguna site is working there.

Tha Alilaguna site itself works, but its timetable/fare pages for indiviodual lines (e.g the d'oro) didn;t when I tried......so be warned.

No doubt they will be fixed soon enough, and if not the Venice tourist info people (P.Roma) will certainly be able to give you all the info you need.

Travel Tips for Venice

Laundry Day

by kenmerk

Tis true "real" people actually do live in Venice...

...and what is more romantic than being serenaded as you glide throught the ancient canals arm in arm with your darling...

Gazing up upon row after row of drying underwear....

Canal Grande tour

by Sjalen

Make it one of your priorities to go on a ride all along Canal Grande by vaporetti - especially if you have only a few hours in the city on your first visit. Not only will it show you many of the finest palaces in the city and give you a general sense of orientation, no the best thing with this is that you are hit by the sense of uniqueness that Venice is all about. Don't miss it! You can catch a vaporetti outside the St Lucia railway station and go all the way down to San Marco which in 2005 set you back five euros. In this picture from near Accademia Bridge, you can see Palazzo Franchetti Cavalli and Palazzo Barbaro (where a painting Monet was only one famous guest).

When the cupola of San Marco...

by naranja

When the cupola of San Marco was bathed in the warm light of a late afternoon, I just had to take, little caring, that it must be one of the most photographed sites in Venice.
The basilica has five enormous domes. This spectacular building has been the project of an unknown architect between 1063 - 94. The angels and other statues have been added in the beginning of the 15th century.

Venetian Carnival

by tini58de

The Venice Carnival lasts for 12 days, from the Saturday before carnival weekend until the following Sunday. The main events take place over carnival weekend itself, which usually is sometimes between mid February and early March.

At carnival time, Venice is packed with party-goers in costume and tourists who are eager to experience this fascinating event! During the day parades weave their way through the streets, and performers keep the crowds entertained for hours. There is a free ball in St Mark¹s Square, but there are also numerous other masked balls and private parties throughout the duration of carnival.

Venice has a carnival history of almost 1000 years: according to the earliest records, the Venice Carnival began in 1039, but only became popular in 1162 when grand celebrations were held after an important victory.

A compass!

by Rachael71

I laughed when my boyfriend told me he meant to bring a compass to Venice but that he had forgotten it. But actually, it would have been a very good idea! The streets are quite narrow and maze-like, and I found it very difficult to get my bearings. So, if you want to get from one place to another as quickly as possible, or if you want to try and follow a walking tour on a map, a compass might be useful. Otherwise, just give in and enjoy not quite knowing where you are as you wander around!
