Arriving in Venice by Ship

San Basilio photoMost cruise ships arrive at either the Marittima terminal buildings (see photo above) or the secondary San Basilio pier (inset photo), which caters mostly to smaller cruise ships and river vessels. From either pier, you can take a land taxi to the Piazzale Roma (with its vaporetto ticket office and boat landings) or to the airport. You can also walk to the Piazzale Roma from Marittima or--more conveniently--along the Zattere and into the historic center from San Basilio.

Occasionally, river boats and other very small ships will moor on the Riva or waterfront promenade next to Venice's public gardens above the Piazza San Marco. This is a great location, since you can easily walk along the water to the Piazza San Marco in about 15 minutes without getting lost.

Finally, if you're arriving by a Minoan Lines ferry from Greece or a Venezia Lines catamaran from Croatia or Slovenia, you'll disembark in the same general area of the port that's used by cruise ships. (Minoan's pier is between Marittima and the Tronchetto parking island; Venezia Lines uses San Basilio.)
