Getting to Venice

Venice is splendid all year long, whatever the season! Strolling through the calli and campielli (alleys and squares), visiting the museums and enjoying the city’s magical atmosphere is an unforgettable experience.

Can’t wait to get to town?

Excellent, Venice is well connected with convenient public transport, including bus services. In fact, the lagoon city has a terminal for buses servicing national and international routes, located in Piazzale Roma. From there you can take a taxi boat or vaporetto along the lagoon’s beautiful canals and enjoy the artistic wonders.

Getting to Venice by bus from the province

Buses arriving in Venice stop at Piazzale Roma.

If you arrive by plane from Marco Polo or Treviso Canova airport, we recommend using the ATVO company.

ATVO offers the best express service from the airport to the city. You will soon find yourself immersed in the lagoon’s suggestive beauty. The bus drops you off in Piazzale Roma, which is the perfect starting point to begin an exploratory tour of Venice.

Getting to Venice by bus from Italy and Europe with low cost buses

ATVO is not the only company servicing the city. Other companies provide low cost transport services connecting Venice to the major cities of Eastern and Northern Europe.

Getting to Venice by vaporetto (waterbus)

If you choose the waterways to move quickly between Venice’s neighbourhoods, vaporetto is definitely the most comfortable way to experience the city.

The ACTV company offers a variety of routes between Piazzale Roma and all the main points of the lagoon city.

There’s no shortage of options when it comes to getting to and getting around Venice!
