Transportation

We will be arriving in Venice by train. What would be the least expensive and best way to get to the Stucky Hilton? Also, we need to get from the Hilton to Satzione ve mestre to pick up a rental car.

Thanks

If you can change your car rental arrangements, it would be much easier to pick up from Piazzale Roma than from the Mestre train station.

You can take a vaporetto (water bus) direct to Piazzale Roma, and from there you drive straight onto the bridge linking Venice to the mainland. To get to Mestre station, you would have to take a vaporetto to the Venice train station, then a train to Mestre, and then figure out how to get from Mestre station onto a main road to wherever you are going.

For the Hilton, take the No 2 Vaporetto to Palanca (Giudecca), the Vaporetto stop is outside the Station,

Thank you everyone for the info. The Hilton site is not very helpful they do not have an email contact listed but the tripadvisor link is very useful. Sydneynick, we did want to pick the car up in Piazzale Roma but then we could not use Milan as a drop off so we need to use the car rental on the mainland. I was looking at the bus system to get back to the mainland. Any thoughts??

I do not understand this statement. Any of the major rental companies will allow you to pick up at Piazzale Roma and drop off in another city. I did exactly that last year with Hertz: pickup at Piazzale Roma, drop off at Rome FCO airport.
