For those arriving by plane at Marco Polo Airport which is located about 13 km from Venice the easiest way to reach Venice is by sea.

ALILAGUNA is a public water taxi company which offers a service that goes from the airport to Murano, the Lido with a final stop at "Calle Vallaresso", near Piazza San Marco,  which is at a walking distance from the Hotel Europa & Regina and from the "Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti". The ticket for this boat (Lancione) costs Euros 10,00 and can be purchased at the ALILAGUNA taxi stand at the end of the arrival hall (opening hours: from 8 am to 12 pm). The crossing takes abt. 1 hour 10 minutes. The Lancione connects more or less with all flights. The timetable is: departure from the Airport to Venice (Calle Vallaresso) every hour at 0:10 minute starting from 6:10 am to 00:10 am.; departure from Venice (Calle Vallaresso) to Airport: at 4:.35 am, at 5:35 am and every hour at 0:50 minutes starting from 6:50 am to 10:50 pm.

You can also take a private water taxi from the airport directly to your final destination (the cost is abt. Euros 80,00) or you can take a land taxi to Piazzale Roma (the cost is abt. Euros 27,00) and from there catch a public boat (Vaporetto) to the stop closest to your final destination (see details in the next paragraph).

For those arriving by train at the Railway Station or by car at the parking garage at Piazzale Roma there are several possibilities. To go directly to the "Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti" one can take the Vaporetto, Line 1 or Line 82 (every 10 minutes from 7:00 until 21:00; every 20/30 minutes afterwards) to the stop Accademia. From there one has to cross the "Ponte dell'Accademia" and walk more or less directly to Campo S.Stefano. To go to the Hotel Europa & Regina, on the other hand, one can also take the Vaporetto, Line 1 or Line 82, to the stop Calle Vallaresso, near Piazza San Marco. The Hotel is a five minute walk, more or less to the left, over "Ponte San Moisč". You can also take a private water taxi from the Railway Station to your final destination (the cost is abt. Euros 45,00).
