Departing Early Morning for Venice Marco Polo Airport

Please advise what method of transportation is best to take from hotel in Dorsoduro to Venice Marco Polo Airport very early in the morning (around 4:00 or 4:15 AM) to catch flight at 6:15 AM.

Do I need to arrange for pickup from the hotel upon arrival in Venice or before leaving the USA? I will be in Venice for 4 days.

Thank you very much.

Do you wish to arrive at Marco Polo by 4/4.15 am or leve you Hotel around then?.

Public transport is hardly awake at that time of the morning. The Alilaguna ferry first leaves Zattere (on Dorsoduro) at around 4.20 a.m. but take c. 1 hour 15 minutes for the voyage to Marco Polo. Check precise current timetable on www.alilaguna.it

The ACTV service bus (No 5) leaves Piazzale Roma at around 4.40 a.m. and takes 35/40 minutes but you will still have to get from your Hotel in Dorsoduro to Piazzale Roma on one of the night ater buses. Check both services on www.actv.it

The ATVO fast coach service, again fom Piazzale Roma, starts around 5 a.m. and takes c. 25 minutes. Check on www.atvo.it.

You can hire private watr taxi, which will take 25/30 minutes, at any time of the day or night. Your Hotel will book you one at fairly short notice but may add a servcie charge to the already high price (80 euros +). Otherwise you can book one yourself on -www.veneziataxi.it



The offsetting advantage is the private water taxi will pick you up from the canalside closest to your Hotel and take you direct to the marco Polo landing stage where you have about a 400 yard walk to the Airport Terminal building - land taxis are available at Marco Polo.
