Travelling to Venice

By train

There is a direct train from Munich central station to Venezia Santa Lucia (central station).

For further details visit the web page of Deutsche Bahn.


By plane

Several airlines offer flights to Marco Polo International Airport at Venice.


Local transportation

The historic center of Venice is quite small so that you can walk to most of the interesting places from the hotels. In addition, you can take the waterbuses (called “Vaporetto”) across the famous Canal Grande or take other lines to travel to the small islands close by.


The transfer from the airport to the historic part of Venice is possible via bus or waterbus. You can check the time tables here

You may buy the tickets at any ACTV counters or online
