If you have one eye on the wallet considering a hotel in Mestre rather than Venice itself is well worth considering.


Mestre as a hotel base could mean reasonable cash savings; in addition it will probably also mean a lot less stressful final leg to your hotel check-in.

You win on several fronts by selecting Mestre as your base when visiting Venice:


1 - Hotels in Mestre are much cheaper than in Venice and offer better value for money for a similar class hotel.


2 - Hotels in Venice are not near any road, so unless you invest in an expensive water taxi and your hotel has a landing stage for boats you face an awkward walk dragging your luggage through crowded alleys on a surface not condusive to rolling luggage.


At Mestre you have a choice of great value hotels directly opposite Mestre train station. Mestre station has dedicated airport buses to both Venice and Treviso airports and all the trains out of Venice Station stop at Mestre.


3 - The Travelcards most visitors use to get around Venice by water bus, also covers the buses between Mestre and Venice at no extra charge. Its only ten minutes by bus or train between Mestre and Venice across the causeway that connects both.


4 - Fast high speed trains run from Mestre to all the main cities of Italy including Rome, Venice, Naples and Florence. Airport buses connect Mestre station with both Venice and Treviso Airport at least as frequently as the airport buses from Venice.

These cards are not valid for the water bus services that connect Venice and Venice Marco Polo Airport. However you can pay a supplement which will then cover the airport bus between Venice Airport and Piazzale Roma Bus Station in Venice.


You can buy tickets for 1, 2, 3 or 7 day durations. The tickets become valid on your first journey where you have to stamp your ticket in the machines provided just like most other Itailan city public transport systems.
