HOW TO REACH VENICE
To get to Venice it is easy, independently from the means of transport you choose: car, train, bus, plane and even by bicycle! If you come by car, you arrive running across one of the various highways (A4 from Trieste and Torino, A27 from Belluno, A13 from Bologna) or roads (SS309 from the Adriatic coast, SS14 from Trieste, SS13 from Treviso, SS11 from Padua).
But there is only one way to move from the dry land to the ancient city on the lagoon: it is running across the "ponte della Liberta" that takes you at Piazzale Roma (Autorimessa Comunale, Garage S.Marco) or Tronchetto. This car park is just after the bridge on the right, before arriving at Piazzale Roma. We suggest you to park in the dry land (Mestre, Marghera, San Giuliano) when in Venice take place important events and then reach the city by bus or train.
The easiest way to get to Venice is by train. If your hotel is in Mestre you have to stop at Mestre railway station otherwise go on with your trip for no more than ten minutes till the Venice railway station named Santa Lucia. Both the railway stations are equipped with services for disabled people.
If you travel by plane you can arrive at Marco Polo airport of Venice or at the Airport Sant'Angelo in Treviso. If you arrive at Marco Polo, you can reach Venice easily by bus (12 kilometres from Venice) or motor-boat (10 kilometres). The airport of Treviso is almost 30 kilometres from Venice. A regular shuttle-service takes you straightforwardly to Venice and Mestre.
