A few Venice questions, please help

Jump to last reply

We are arriving Marco Polo at 9:30 am on a Monday in May. I have a few things I'm still confused about and appreciate your help.

At the airport: we will be bring some Euro's with us ( still trying to decide how many ). Where is the best place to get more - Airport ATM or are there enough readily available locations elsewhere?

We will have a cell phone a friend purchased in Italy last year - we were told to go to airport kiosk and "buy minutes" . Is there a best location to do this?

We are staying at Hotel Paganelli. Hotel said to take Alilaguana to San Zaccaria stop - about one hour. We haven't been to Venice before and I like the idea of arriving by view of Grand Canal . Is this the "scenic" ( for lack of a better term ) route or not? Any other suggestions?

Our time is relatively short - we will be departing by train on Wednesday midday. Would you recommend vaporetto pass? Our main goal is to see some of the main highlights - Doge's, St. Mark's Basilica, Rialto, and simply "wander".

Thanks for your help
