Città inverosimile che si deve avvicinare soltanto in barca e venendo da lontano.
It's better if you decide not to arrive to Venice by car but if you really want to - or maybe you ought to! - you must leave your car in one of the car parks near Venice, Piazzale Roma (the bus terminal) or Tronchetto and then you can continue by foot or by boat...
If you arrive in Venice by plane you can easily reach the historic centre with one of the many public transport services connecting Venice with its main airport, Marco Polo or with the Ryanair airport Canova - San Giuseppe.
You can always choose between a wide private transport service of car or water taxis.
The best way to reach Venice is by train because you arrive closer to the city centre.
Santa Lucia is Venice's only railway station, located near Piazzale Roma, the bus terminal.
If you are among those lucky tourists arriving in Venice by ship, from the port you can easily reach the very heart of Venice, Saint Mark's square, using the private waterbuses of Alilaguna or the public tranport ACTV.
Venice is unique in that the ‘roads’ are actually canals but don’t despair - there are footpaths. The two ways of getting around are either by foot or by boat.Read more
The best way to see the city, feel the atmosphere and discover the hidden corners is on foot. If, on the other hand, you want to see the palaces on the Grand Canal and are strapped for time, it is best to take a boat. The public boat service, run by the Actv, stops at all the main points of interest in the city and outlying islands.
The Actv runs bus lines in the islands of Lido and Pellestrina, (where cars and bus are authorised to run) and in the mainland. Bus lines also connect Venice proper with the mainland and various routes throughout the territory in Mestre and Marghera.
