Bought tickets at the airport. Big mistake. Return ticket for 2 from Airport to San Angelo and 3 day pass (which was shown as giving access to museums - it didn't - we were just laughed at) €135. No information leaflet with tickets, not even a timetable. Waited over 1 hour at airport in a very long queue with nowhere... More

I booked my family's tickets in getyourguide.com for the Venice Boat Trip: Murano, Burano, Torcelli. Apparently, the tour operator used Alilaguna Transport which I later found out, is a public transport service. You wouldn't really know what kind of boat company you are getting until you have already paid and seen the voucher. That said, do not expect a good... More

Alilaguna runs scheduled boat services - this review focuses on service from and to Marco Polo airport and various stops in Venice. Check their web site for maps, stops, schedules and fares. Takes more than an hour but gives you a good appreciation for the lagoon before turning into the Grand Canal. The alternatives involve buses, local boats and changes... More

I pre-purchased a voucher online for Alilaguna service from the Marco Polo Airport to Venice. The directions were clear to go directly to the Alilaguna desk at the dock at the airport. What they don't tell you is the near marathon it is to get there. Be prepared to walk and walk and walk. Once I arrived at the desk,... More

I am sorry but paying good money to be packed in like a sardine is not my idea of fun, forget the views I was more interested in protecting my property from any pick pockets, they really should not pack people in due to health and safety. We decided that we would walk back to our destination.

We have used this public transport service several times while here in Venice. We took their tour to the islands and to the airport. It was good in all cases. Staff are very willing to answer questions.

We decided to use Alilaguna airport shuttle service at the end of our vacation in Venice. The cost was reasonable 15E per person including 2 large suitcases and 2 carry-ons. We got on at Zaterre and the shuttle was empty but by the time we got to the Marco Polo airport it was filled to the max (with stops taking... More

Having taken a private water taxi from the airport and used the waterbuses all weekend we decided to take orange line along the Grand Canal to the airport. Boarded at Gigli stop. 40 mins. Very happy with service.

Easiest way to get from airport to the lido. One direct route, it takes about 40 minutes. The water does get very choppy, with the speed boats which go by, so remember this is you suffer with travel sickness.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
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 universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
