Marco Polo airport to Hotel Al Vivit in Mestre

First time to Venice and was advised to stay in Mestre and travel in every day (more cheaper) We travel a lot and don't mind train transport or bus.

Could anyone give us some pointers of how to get from Marco Polo Airport to Hotel Al Vivit in Mestre - cannot seem to make sense of the bus timetable or is it just me? Is there a shuttle airport bus which gets us somewhere near? Going April 2014 for 4 nights.

Thanks

Airport buses into Venice stop at Mestre station ("FS"). Your hotel's own website (http://www.hotelvivit.com/location.htm) tells you to take the Flybus and get off at the Piazza XXVII Ottobre stop, 200 m from the hotel.

I wouldn't bother with the timetable, just take the next bus after you get to the stop at the airport, you can't have too long to wait. The service runs from 6 am to midnight.

blackjet—Consider buying a Tourist Travel Card ACTV, which entitles you to unlimited use of the waterbuses (vaporetti) serving Venice and the islands of the lagoon, and to unlimited use of ACTV Mestre land bus service to and from Venice and in Mestre itself—and land buses on Lido.

ACTV Tourist Travel Cards, which can be purchased either on line, at the airport, in Mestre, or in Venice, are a tremendous bargain that will pay for themselves many times over during your visit to Venice. Although the on line discount is no longer available, the links below will provide information about cost and card selection, regardless of where you plan to make your purchase.

ACTV buses taken from the airport now cost €6—or €4 if purchased with the ACTV Tourist Travel Card.
