This is how you get from Venice Marco Polo airport to Venice by boat ( vaporetto) or( water bus). Buy your boat ticket in the airport or outside. There are about 4-5 stops along the way, it takes a little over an hour to get to Piazza San Marco station. It took a little longer that day, due to the storm. Select your hotel as close to a water-bus station as possible, there are bridges with steps to cross and they don t have ramps for your luggage.
