If you come by bus from the airport you have to get off
at Piazzale Roma (here's where cars have to stop in Venice). From
here you may reach the guest house either on foot or by boat. On foot it
takes about half an hour so, unless you are very strong and resistant,
we do suggest you to take a ''vaporetto''. In this case you have
to look for Line 1 and get off at Salute stop (it is the
last stop on the right side of the Grand Canal, before Vallaresso
after Giglio) it takes about forty minutes, but you may rest while
enjoiyng the sight of the Grand Canal palaces.
Public transport is rather expensive in Venice (a
one hour ticket costs 6 euros).
On the other hand it is hard to move (expecially for crossing
the Grand Canal) only on foot.
We suggest the participants to make a monthly ticket:
the price is 26 euros for the monthly ticket, plus 8 euros una tantum for
You may get it at the ACTV ticket office in Piazzale
Roma (looking at the bridge you came from, it is a small building on your
right, between you and the Grand Canal). You have to bring
1) a passport size photo
2) a photocopy of your Identity Card.
You just have to fill an application form and you'll be
given a temporary card (the one that costs you 8 euros). With that card
you may purchase a monthly ticket for 26 euros.

Rich people may also take a watertaxi: the fare
depends on the number of people. The fare for two people from Piazzale
Roma to Campo di Santa Maria della Salute is about 40 euros, from
Venice airport about 100 euros.
