Alilaguna from Airport to Hotel

We're staying one night pre-cruise in Venice next March.

Arrive Marco Polo 11.00 am and have booked one night in Best Western Hotel Olimpia Venezia which I'm told is just a few minutes from the cruise terminal - Piazzale Roma District?

From looking at this forum it seems Alilaguna is the best way to travel (we will have two large suitcases plus carry-ons) but can anyone advise where we should get off the boat? The hotel is fairly near the station and the address is S. Croce 395? Don;t mind wheeling our cases a little way but don't want to be climbing stepped bridges etc. Would we be better off getting a taxi (if in fact one could get to where we are staying).

Any info would be appreciated.

Kamloops, BC...

From your hotel's web site --


Ship / Airplane

The shuttle from cruise ships and those run by ATVO from Venice's "Marco Polo" airport and Treviso's "Canova" airport stop in Piazzale Roma, less than 100 meters from Hotel Olimpia. Alternatively, you can take a water taxi and land right at the hotel or, take the ACTV bus no. 5 from Venice's Airport to reach Piazzale Roma.


From Santa Lucia train station, it is a 10/15 minute walk to Piazzale Roma and Hotel Olimpia. The imminent opening of the new Ponte di Calatrava will make it possible to reach Piazzale Roma in just 5 minutes. If you have luggage, take vaporetto line 1 and get off at the Piazzale Roma stop. The hotel is visible from the squar

The Alilaguna ferry is not convenient for the Hotel Olympia by Piazzale Roma,, fromMarco Polo Airport your best option is the ATVO Bus, this is non stop cost €3, with plenty of luggage space, and terminates at Piazzale Roma,

The Piazzlale Roma is not walking distance to the Stazione Marittima, with luggage,check with your cruise line if they run a shuttle other ise there are Land Taxi's, ,

Thank you both so much for your very swift replies! ATVO bus looks our best bet - thanks again.
