We needed to get over to the Cruise Terminal and used the Quickie Transport via People Mover as the mode of transportation - & it functioned just fine as well as being cost effective. Venice knows the details! Enjoy!

The People Mover is great for getting to your ship from Venice. The trains are clean, frequent and there is an elevator if you have large luggage. The People Mover is also easy to find at Piazzale Roma with a big visible sign.

You can buy tickets from automated vending machines at the entrances. There was an attendant helping people when I was there the other day, which was very helpful. The machines do not take larger bills, so it's best to plan ahead and make sure you...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

Hi Brendame, As far as I have seen from the shuttle it is walking only across the parking lot between the harbor and the station Marittima. Have a nice trip to Venice. Greetings, Hendrik_NL
