Venice: Train and ship connections inside the city

Jump to last reply

After an overnight flight, my wife and I will arrive at VENICE Marco Polo Airport about 11 AM Venice time and will be staying at the Hotel Antiche Figure (S. Croce, 686 - Fond. S. Simeone, Santa Croce, Venice, 30135).

My thought was to take the ATVO coach bus from Marco Polo to Piazzale Roma. Weather and fatigue permitting, we would walk for 10 minutes with our wheeled luggage over two bridges the ~1/3 of a mile to the Hotel.

(1) My worry is that weather or fatigue might make walking a problem. What alternatives for such a short journey? We are about 70 years of age and far from feeble, but forethought is always good.

(2) After a few days elsewhere, we will be coming back to the VENICE S. Lucia station in the early afternoon and need to board a ship at to Stazione Marittima #107 around 2 PM. Again it's not very far. Is walking with wheeled luggage best?
