Travel to Venice by rail


Venezia Santa Lucia, as seen from the water

The island of Venice is connected by rail via the Venice Santa Lucia railway station and the rail bridge which connects Venice to the shore. Around 450 trains arrive here each day. The public transport system in its vicinity consists solely of “vaporetto” boat-transport lines along the Grand Canal, while the urban and extra-urban road transport lines are concentrated in Piazzale Roma. From the station square you can get a marvellous view on the new bridge by the Arch. Santiago Calatrava, inaugurated on the evening of sept. 11 2008. The 94 metre long bridge, built with Istria stone details and steel and glass structures, connects Piazzale Roma with Santa Lucia station, and is crossed every day by thousands of tourists and citizens.
