Additional Tourist and Travel Information:
*If you are traveling to Venice by train you can take Trenitalia. From the Rome station Termini. The journey can take up to 5 hours and cost $28. Ticket prices are subject to change depending on when you book. I recommend bringing food with you.
*For travelers staying in Mestre 1 return trip by water taxi is€
14 or€7 one way. A 3 day pass for unlimited water taxi + bus is €35 and takes you all the way to Lido. I recommend taking water taxi #1 from Piazzale Roma all the way to Lido for a beautiful scenic cruise.
*Gondola rides are about€80 Euros for 40 minutes and can usually be shared by up to 4 people.
*You must remember to validate your tickets before boarding public transportation because random checks are performed. Even those with purchased tickets can be charged up to€59 if they are not validated. If you do not purchase a ticket and get caught the fine is up to €250.
