Thanks for cleaning it up!

The most recent renovations make this station much easier to deal with. It's cleaner, user friendlier.

The architecture of the building just reveals it is more than a station. It is a way of expressing art for a train station. As expected you get to see sculptors and carvings in every corner.

Just outside this station is a small plaza which fronts a number of waterbus/ferry terminals that will take you just about anywhere from here. Ticket stations are plentiful and easy to follow. The station is clean and appealing. A very good first impression of Venice

We traveled here from Florence on another Trenitalia service, and we found this station very well laid out with good facilities. We found the visitor centre (Venezia Unica) right in front of the platforms and on the way to the exit, and we bought our 3 day ACTV transport passes from here as did a number of other tourists.

As a train station this is one of Italy's smaller. It is well laid out and has everything in close proximity and some helpful staff. However, on arrival we were surprised at the price of the water taxis 70€ and the fact that vaporetto is not the same thing as a taxi (rookie error). This form of public transport was... More

Santa Lucia station's easy to find and get around inside - shops to the front, platforms at the rear. If you're looking for a cheap coffee before/after your travels, try Vyta Santa Margherita.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
