Cruise ship to hotel

Friends disembarking from a criuise ship have a hotel down the Fonda. Zattere ai Gesuati. Would they board a Vap?? What stop would that be and can they buy a 48 hours pass at any Vap stop.?

Would this be line 51 or 2? Tthanks ...I wish it were me, but I am excited to give them as many suggestions as I can.

Their cruise line may provide a shuttle to Piazzale Roma. If not, they will need to take a land taxi to there. They then take vaporetto 51 from Piazzale Roma to Zattere.

The main vaporetto stops have ticket offices where your friends can buy a 48-hour pass. They can easily do this at Piazzale Roma. However, they can get a discount of they buy in advance from www.veniceconnected.com

Or they could get a 1 or 2 down the Grand canal and get off at Accademia. From there it is a flat walk through to the area where the hotels such as la Calcina are located on the Zattere. Much depends on which hotel.

For just a few cruise liners, they moor at a wharf actually ON the Giudecca canal and from there it is just walk over one bridge to the Zattere.

Both the No. 2 (anti clockwise) and the 51 do go to Zattere,
