By car: The Ponte della Libertà bridge connects the mainland to Venice, arriving at Piazzale Roma, the only car accessible area of the city. There are several car parks (indoor and outdoor) in Piazzale Roma that vary according to its fees. Cars can also be parked at the Tronchetto Car Park, turning right immediately at the end of the Ponte della Libertà bridge, just before Piazzale Roma. You can reach the city center from both Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto Car Park by vaporetto (water buses), water taxi, or walking.
By plane: You can reach Venice from the Marco Polo Airport by water taxi, by AliLaguna motor boat (Linea Blu), or by bus (ACTV number 5 or ATVO Air Terminal Shuttle, both to Piazzale Roma).
By train: The Santa Lucia Railway Station is located at the beginning of the Grand Canal in Santa Croce. You can reach the city center by taking the vaporetto from one of the decks opposite to the station, water taxi, or walking.
