Arriving by cruise ship. How to get to Hotel

by evvelde

3 couples are arriving in Vienna by cruise ship and staying at Hotel Sant" Elena. How do we get there and are there good reasonable priced restaurants near there? Thanks in advance for your replies. Carol

Water-taxis are available of course, and expensive.

Water-buses (vaporetti) are efficient, frequent and easily available.

The hotel website has a map and directions:

http://www.hotelsantelena.com/directions.htm

There are two cruise ship terminals in Venice. From Marritima you can walk to Piazzale Roma and take a vaporetto from there, following the hotel's directions. From San Basilio you can take vaporetto 2 or 61/2 (the 61 goes to your hotel's stop) and either get to Piazzale Roma or to your hotel (possibly with a change of vaporetto).

http://europeforvisitors.com/venice/articles/venice-cruise-terminal.htm gives info on both cruise terminals.

http://www.actv.it/english/navigazione.php?pagina=tariffe_vaporetto will give you vaporetto fares and timetables.

Anyway, Leics... they are 6 people with luggages (i guess): waterbus 39 euros (for six). Water taxi, something between 50 and 80 (my guess) straight or close to the hotel. I would think twice before discharging the taxi....

Ciao

Agreed.

All depends on a)how much luggage they have b) what time they arrive c) how tired they are and d)how much they have in their budget.

Can we get a regular Auto taxi to take us to the hotel? we are older and will have luggage.

Re: Arriving by cruise ship. How to get to Hotel

You mean a car with wheels? To Sant'Elena? I'm sorry, no. Search for a taxi-boat, and be sure to bargain the price before boarding, and to be sure it will land you at the hotel (if on a canal) or in the closer point to it

I am assuming the Hotel Sant'Elena is on the San'Elena island, of course.... South east part of Venice.

Carol: the thing about Venice is that it is a city built with a network of canals, which have always functioned as 'roads'. There is no road transport within the city because there are no suiitable roads. All 'auto' traffic stops at the end of the causeway from the mainland, at Piazzale Roma.

In Venice, one can either walk (it is a small and very walkable city), or take the public vaporetti (water-buses, not particularly cheap for visitors), take a private water-taxi (expensive) or a gondola (even more expensive...50 euro for 30 minutes when I visited out of season in early 2008).

Walking is by far the best way to explore Venice. With luggage, your choice is between vaporetti and water-taxi.

Travel Tips for Venice

Stinky Water and Amazing history

by Rude_boy22

Stumbling upon an empty square surrounded by Venice's ancient architecture. Walking around late at night, seeing the Italians in the tourist industry relaxing after work. A drunken gondola operator going down the canal singing loudly with a boombox playing Pink Floyd.

Murano Glass Shop...

by coceng

...I was in the excursion group so I had the chance too see HOW a piece of glass was blown to a beautiful glass horse !...

I didn't have the chance to capture the guy blowing the glass because it was so fast, like a few minutes blowing & turning, blowing & turning...he's a pro ! Everybody's looking were amazed...
... but I could capture the beautiful glass horse....(the finished thing).

Venice - water bus ride

by Martin_S.

This was our water bus as it pulled into the station, I was hoping the other boat would pull out before we clobbered it. If you have never boarded a boat before, it can be in interesting test of balance and timing. As the station sways to the pace of the waves hitting it, the boat also rocks to its own rythm, one is going up and down and a little back and forth, while the other is to and fro with a little down and sideways. At this point you need to step from one to the other, well good luck...I think they will fish you out of the Grand Canal if you "miss" that first step ^O^

Agua Alta / high Water

by elpariente

Por una combinación entre las mareas , los vientos , la presión atmosférica y las corrientes del Adriático se produce el fenómeno llamado "Acqua Alta" , que no es más que la inundación de las partes más bajas de la ciudad como la plaza San Marcos .
Es curioso que el agua no entra en principio porque se desborde el Gran Canal , sino porque el agua sale del subsuelo por las alcantarillas
Hace años , este fenómeno ocurría no más de diez veces al año , pero actualmente se puede repetir más de sesenta veces , lo que ha obligado al Comune de Venecia a tener preparado un sistema de plataformas que se colocan cuando aumenta el nivel para que pueda pasar la gente , a elevar los marcos de las puertas y acometer el gran proyecto Moses ( Moises : Salvado de las aguas ) para buscar una solución más definitiva a este problema


Due to a combination of tide, wind, atmospheric pressure and flows of Adriatic Sea , it is originated the phenomenon called "Acqua Alta" (High Water), which floods the lowest parts of the city , as St. Mark's Square.
It is curious that water does not come in principle because of the Grand Canal overflowing , but because the water comes out from underground sewers
Years ago, this phenomenon occurred not more than ten times a year, but now it can be repeated more than sixty times, forcing at the Venice´s Comune to develop a system of platforms that are placed when the level rises ,so that people can pass, to raise the door frames and undertake the great project Moses (Moses, "Saved from the waters) to seek a more definitive solution to this problem

Flooding!

by Matravel

If you are Ok w/checking bags and are coming early january....bring a quite big bag...with ONLY the necessary stuff since sales (SALDI) are really (really) espectacular (specially if you do the whole Tax Free stuff and if the dollar is strong..at least from my point of view). If you find yourself deep in the water it is always useful to forget style, get over it and buy those green plastic boots...trust me, you're never going to regret it! Just be sure to waer socks, otherwise be ready to get painful and hedious blisters. It is always easy to fins anything in Venice, La Standa for instance carries a lot of nice european hair treatments. The last time I was there I forgot to bring mosturizer but got a nice "CERA DI CUPRA" at a local pharmacy. Be aware that almost evry store is closed on sundays, so get everything you need either in the train station, airport or a day ahead.
