Getting there and away

The city can be reached either by road or by water. Waterbuses take about an hour to reach San Marco and cost €10 one way. Private Water Taxis or Motoscafi can also be booked, but are far more pricey starting from around €90 for 4 people. A regular taxi would cost about €30 and take 15 minutes to reach Piazzale Roma near the Santa Lucia train station. Water taxis can be caught from there to the centre. Public buses are the cheapest option at €3 (including luggage) and leave every 30 minutes. They take about 20 minutes to reach Piazzale Roma. Regular buses by ACTV and ATVO bring passengers to the two Venice railway stations: Venice-Santa Lucia (from where you can reach the Piazzale Roma square in 10 minutes on foot acrossing the "Ponte della Costituzione" bridge), and Venice-Mestre (on the mainland, convenient for connections to Milan, Verona, and the rest of Italy).
