Good place to stay with a toddler?

Hi. We will be staying in Venice for 2 nights pre cruise in October (4 adults plus 1 toddler 17 months) and are looking for advice. We arrive at 7.30PM and would like somewhere easy to get to but that has good links to the city and the cruise port. Not discounting staying on the island, but it will have been a long day so easy access might be better. Thanks!

The cruise terminal (Stazione Marittima) is actually in the historic centre ('on the island', as you put it). It's reached by a tram known as the 'people mover' from Piazzale Roma. The vaporetti (water buses) call at Piazzale Roma, so if you stay anywhere in Venice proper you can hop on a vaporetto to Piazzale Roma and you're almost there!

If you arrive at the airport, Piazzale Roma is a relatively short bus ride away, 20-30 minutes. I'd stay near Piazzale Roma which is near the cruise port people mover.

Thank you. Trying to find somewhere reasonably cheap as we have blown the budget on the cruise!!
