Transportation from Venice Airport to Hotel Flora

What is the best mode of transportation ,excluding water taxi,s, to get from the Venice Airport to the Hotel Flora? I know that sometimes there is a difference between the bestway and the easiest way if that is the case please give me both ways.
Thankyou

Hi NJ,

There is a bus from VCE to Piazzale Roma.

There is the Alilaguna shuttle boat. http://www.alilaguna.com/

There are water taxis, about 80E for the taxi.

I suggest asking your hotel for directions.

NJA - The hotel website - http://www.hotelflora.it/en/location.htm
- gives you the best public transport options:

- Alilaguna to S. Marco (- hourly departures; € 10)
www.alilaguna.it/?lang=en

or

- Airport Shuttle bus to Piazzale Roma, then vaporetto to S Marco.

Hope this helps ...

Steve

It looks like the Alilaguna boat to San Marco would be best for Hotel Flora--one mode of transportation with a short walk.

Using my criteria of easiest and best, you've already excluded the easiest and best way.

In my opinion, next would be the Alilaguna boat and then walk to the hotel since it's pretty close to P. San Marco.

In case you have not taken a look at the hotel's site (cannot tell if you have done it or not from your post), it says :

From the Venice Marco Polo Airport
1. Take the Alilaguna shuttle service from the airport to St. Mark's Square, and continue on foot from there.
2. On land, you can take the shuttlebus service (ACTV or ATVO) to Piazzale Roma, and take vaporetto no. 1.until the San Marco stop, and then continue on foot for a few minutes' walk.

I would prefer 1. that requires only boat + walk vs 2. bus + boat + walk. If you do 2., that would be slightly cheaper and also you could get off at Giglio stop before San Marco too. The hotel is located somewhere in between.

The easiest way is water taxi but you excluded it.
