How do you travel from Airport to Mestre?

Home >  From Airport to Venice >  Airport to Mestre >

I can recommend you two options from Marco Polo Airport to Mestre. Thanks to a visitor on my site! She had booked the Mercure hotel in the suburb of Mestre, near Venice.

1.: Every half an hour an ATVO bus departures from Marco Polo Airport to the Mestre Railway Station. A total trip of 17 minutes and costs about EUR 8, - p.p...

Tip 1: Discover Venice by gondola and experience the magic of the city from the water. Through my partner we have tickets from EUR 32 , - Book here >

From Airport to Mestre with ATVO

To continue to reach the Mercure hotel you should take the ATVO bus to Mestre FS (railroad station), like I just wrote.

From here you have to walk for over a 30 minutes to arrive at the hotel. But, you can choose to take a taxi from the station in Mestre to the Mercure Hotel, at least this is what I would do…

2.: The other option is to take bus number 15 towards Mestre with the public transport from company ACTV.

These buses are orange. The bus stops at different places in Mestre and also near the Mercure Hotel. You can ask the bus driver who usually can indicate where to get off.

Buses ACTV and ATVO can be found outside the arrivals hall.

From Treviso Airport to Mestre there is only one best option. Take the ATVO-shuttle bus to Mestre-Venezia and continue the route from Mestre railway station. 

Buy a day-ticket for public transport

It is good to know that ACTV organizes the public transport in Mestre and around Venice, including the water bus (vaporetto) and buses on land in Mestre (also on Lido). With a Tourist Travel Card you are saving money if you use al lot of these transports. The bus fare is only € 1,50, but the vaporetto boat costs € 7,50 (valid 75 minutes and per person). 

Buying the Tourist Travel Card can be done at the airport at an ACTV counter or machine. But you cannot use them yet. The card cannot be automatically used by the ATVO shuttle buses nor ACTV buses that go to and from Marco Polo Airport. Additionally, you cannot use the Tourist Travel Card on the ferry Alilaguna lines.

Tourist Travel Card: 

1 Ticket to use the vaporetto boat € 7.50 (75 minutes).

The ticket machine you can find on Treviso Airport, Marco Polo Airport, in Mestre and in Venice!

·         20,00 € - 1 DAY TRAVELCARD

·         30,00 € - 2 DAYS TRAVELCARD

·         40,00 € - 3 DAYS TRAVELCARD

·         60,00 € - 7 DAYS TRAVELCARD

Airport to Mestre time

Therefore, it is better to buy the tourist travel card when you are in Venice. Remember that Venice is amazing beautiful, so you easily forget the planned museums.

It's romantic to stroll through the narrow streets and the small bridges. You will walk a lot. Maybe several times a vaporetto. And therefore, with the day card Tourist Travel Card it is convenient to travel in Mestre and in Venice.

From Airport to Mestre, but you are not yet in Venice...

Your hotel is in Mestre. This means you still have to get from Mestre to Venice. Many large hotels (including Mercure) own a shuttle bus. Several times a day they will bring their guests to Piazzale Roma in Venice. To be sure, you can ask it in advance by email to the hotel.

Piazzale Roma is the starting point of many tourists. It’s the place where people park their car, get out a bus or a tram. From this square you can continue your way into Venice with a water bus (vaporetto). You can use the Tourist Travel Card or buy a separate ticket (EUR 7.50). Please don’t forget to check-inn with your ticket before entering the vaporetto boat.

Since 2014 there is also a tram connecting Mestre and Venice.

Other options to reach Venice from Mestre is by using the train. Every 10 minutes there is a train from Mestre to Venice. From the Mercure hotel you can take bus no. 6 to Mestre train station. It's just one station to Venezia Santa Lucia and a train ticket is a few Euro. From the train station continue to walk to the Rialto Bridge or take a vaporetto boat outside the station. And start your tour on the Grand Canal.

Taking a boat on the Grand Canal is one of the first amazing things when you arrive in Venice. Consider it as your first sightseeing tour and enjoy, be curious and make pictures. When you get off the vaporetto boat, try to walk through the small streets, crossing squares and bridges… Buy a good map or guidebook! And get lost…
