Regarding your arrival from the train station SANTA LUCIA to DOMUS VENETIA, you may choose from the following three options:

Taking the boat

The first option is taking the boat, towards San Marco. Once you get out from the train station, you'll see that you are like in the center of Venice. Right in front of the train station there is a stop station on the Grand Canal for the vaporetti - public boats - named Ferrovia (there are also offices to buy the tickets: 7,00 Euros per person).
To reach us, you have to take the Vaporetto N.1 (Lido direction) and you have to get off at Giglio stop (45 min. journey).

During the crossing you can see the beautiful buildings surrounding the Grand Canal. This journey takes slightly longer than the second one but you can see all of Venice's beauty and you do not have to carry the luggage with you. The closest stop to my flat is Santa Maria del Giglio.

Water Taxi

The second option is a private Water Taxi: you can also take a taxi to reach the apartment from the train station.
Right next to the stop station for the vaporetti you can find some private water taxi (any of them is good) which can bring you to the water taxi station of Santa Maria del Giglio in about 15 minutes and for about 70 Euros, payable only by cash. I or one of my assistants will be waiting for you there (the flat is located in Campo San Maurizio, just 2 minutes far from the waterbus o watertaxi stop).

We would like also to mention that you don't need to book in advance any of these 2 services, so I suggest you to decide it on your arrival in front of the Grand Canal.


The third option, by use of a map, is walking towards San Tomà and then take a short Gondola ride across the Grand Canal and then walk for few minutes. This journey takes in all about 20 minutes and you have to carry the luggage with you.
