From the historic center

Once you are in the historic center of Venice, the island of San Servolo can be reached either by public transportation (there are hourly boats running to and from the island from in front of the Londra Palace Hotel) or by private taxi. Taxis can cost from € 30 to € 75 one way. The public boats n. 20 to San Servolo leave from San Marco in front of the Londra Palace Hotel, Riva degli Schiavoni.

There are several services that run from the airport to
Venice:

 > Alilaguna waterbus service: this company offers a service that goes from the airport to Murano, the Lido, the Arsenale with a final stop at San Marco. Tickets can be purchased in the arrival hall of the airport or directly on board. Boats leave hourly. Take shuttle bus from terminal to dock.

 > ATVO buses: these blue buses run hourly from the airport to Piazzale Roma and they leave from in front of the entrance of the departure hall.

 > Water and land Taxis: you can take a private water taxi directly to your final destination (which is an expensive choice. From the airport to San Servolo it costs about € 75). Take shuttle bus from terminal to dock. Alternatively you can take a land taxi to Piazzale Roma, and from there catch a public boat, called a "vaporetto", to the stop closest to your final destination.
 


By car

If you bring a car to Venice, you will have to pay for a garage or parking space during your stay. The last stops in Venice where you can leave your car are called "Piazzale Roma" and "Tronchetto". Parking at "Piazzale Roma" in the parking lot run by the city costs between € 7.7 and € 12.90, and at the private Garage San Marco (next door) it costs between € 20.00 and € 24.00 for 24 hours, depending on the size of the car. To reach the privately run "Tronchetto" parking area, as you come into Venice, follow the signs and turn right before "Piazzale Roma". Warning: Do not be waylaid by illegal touts - often wearing fake uniforms - who may try to flag you down and offer to arrange parking and hotels. Instead, continue on until you reach the automatic ticket machines. Parking here costs around € 18.00 for 24 hours. (Do not leave valuables in the car. There is a luggage deposit office, open daily 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., next to the Pullman Bar on the ground floor of the municipal garage at "Piazzale Roma".) Another solution is to park your car in front of the train station in Mestre. Parking here costs much less (around € 4.15 per day), and there are frequent trains and buses between Mestre and Venice Piazzale Roma: see ACTV Home Page , schedule for Bus n. 2).
 


By train

Venice has rail connections with every major city in Italy and the rest of Europe. The main train station (Stazione F.S. Venezia S. Lucia) is on the Grand Canal in the northwest corner of the city. Some through trains do not terminate at Santa Lucia, stopping only at the Venezia-Mestre Station on the mainland. All trains traveling to and from Santa Lucia stop at Mestre, so to get from Venezia-Mestre to Santa Lucia, or vice versa (a 10-minute trip), take the first available train, remembering there is a supplemento (extra charge) for traveling on Intercity and Eurocity trains, and that if you do not pay it before boarding, you are liable for a fine. You can also check the European train schedule in case you are arriving by train from Europe or the Italian train schedule if you are getting to Venice from another Italian city.
