Hi. We are travelling to Venice and will be landing at the Marco Polo Airport at 9am on the 6th of May 2014. We stay at the Palazzo Giovanelli Gran Canal and will be boarding a cruise ship the next day. I've read about the different means of transportation and want to know what the best option is:
Can we use a vaporetto from the airport (seems like line 1?) to San Stae directly? It appears from their website that the hotel is adjacent to the stop next to San Stae Church.
Because we have the whole day to spend in Venice, we want to make the best of the time that we are there. Would it be better to purchase a Travel Card to use during the day (and next day).
I've read about a Peoplemover that takes you to the pier. Where would this be in relation to our hotel?
It seems that the busiest time to use the vaporetto is between 8 and 10am. Would it be better to first visit the mainland or Rome and only go to our hotel later (we can only book in @ 2pm).
Thank you in advance for any help!! :)
