Chances are that you are sleeping in one of the newest hotels in Mestre and that after breakfast you are wondering how to get to Venice to start visiting this wonderful and unique town.
Or maybe, you have spent your whole day walking around in Venice and now you want to go back to your hotel in Mestre to have your well deserved relax.
Either for one reason or the other, there are several ways to go from Mestre to Venice and viceversa.
You could take the train (arrival point in Venice -> St. Lucia railway station), which fits especially well if you’re living in one of the Hotel in Mestre that are near the railway station. There are plenty of trains from Mestre to Venice and viceversa, about one every 5-10 minutes in medium-high traffic hours, 15-20 minutes in low traffic hours. And prices are cheap enough, 1,35€ for the most popular choices (Regionale and Regionale Veloce). The trip will take approximately 10-12 minutes.
Please consider that the train service won’t go on through the night. It will start at 5.05 am (6.05 sundays) and stop at 00.20 pm (0.35 am fridays and saturdays).
