How to reach Lido di Venezia / Venice Lido and Villa Gabriella Bed and Breakfast
1) By airplane
From Venice Marco Polo airport to Venice-Piazzale Roma:
Solution 1) Take the water boat Alilaguna from the airport (follow the panels water bus/boat out of the sliding doors of the airport, 10 minutes walk to the boat station from the arrivals gate). Approximately 1 hour journey to the B&B.
Public Bus line 5 (time tables) (prices) ATVO BUS private line (time tables) (prices)
From Treviso Airport to Venice Piazzale Roma: Private Bus in correspondance with your flight to Venice Piazzale Roma (1 hour). Then take boat n. 5.1 to Lido (Prices) – the trip is approximately 35 minutes.
2) By car
If you arrive by car take the Ferry Boat to the Lido island from the Tronchetto Station at the end of “Ponte della Libertà” (this bridge that connects Mestre and Venice). You will see the street signs: “Ferry to Lido”. The Ferry Boat goes every 50 minutes and is an economical alternative instead of parking the car in the garage in Venice.
You can easily park your car on the road front Villa Gabriella, parking is always free, available and safe.
I suggest to pre-buy tickets for the entire duration of your stay for persons in the ACTV ticket center, 200 meters before the boarding peer of the ferry. In the boarding peer of the Ferry then you can ONLY buy tickets for your car.
