Getting to the Hilton Molino Stucky from the airport
Hilton Molino Stucky is tucked away in a former
industrial quarter on Giudecca, you can reach it easily from Venice Marco Polo
Airport. The two main transportation options are:
This will cost you €110 or more, but the trip is quick (half
an hour or less) and is worth considering if you're traveling with several other
people and are laden with heavy baggage. You can hire a water taxi from the
Consorzio Motoscafi Venezia counter on the airport's arrivals level, immediately
after leaving the baggage area. For more information, see our two-page
Water Taxis article.
Alilaguna airport boat.
Water buses of Alilaguna's Linea Blu (Blue Line) normally stop at the Hilton
Molino Stucky on their way to the Marittima cruise terminal. These boats are
far cheaper than water taxis, but the trip from the airport to the hotel is
much slower (about an hour and a half). See our
Venice Airport Boats article for advice on
Tip 1: Double-check
the current Linea Blu
timetable before purchasing tickets. (Alilaguna sometimes changes its
timetables and even its boat routes without warning.)
Tip 2: In the
off-season, you may be required to change to a smaller Alilaguna water bus
at the San Marco Giardinetti stop. This isn't a huge inconvenience, but it
does mean hauling your luggage off one boat and onto another.
Other (but less direct) ways to reach the Hilton Molino Stucky
from the airport include:
Take the ATVO airport bus
or a land taxi to the Piazzale Roma and
transferring to an ACTV vaporetto
or public water bus. Catch the westbound No. 2 or 41 vaporetto and get off
at Palanca (the fifth
stop after Piazzale Roma). Turn right as you exit the ACTV station, then
walk along the waterfront for about 10 minutes or so along the waterfront to
the Hilton Molino Stucky. The walk is mostly level, with a small footbridge
just before you reach the hotel. (Zoom in on our
Google aerial photo map
to see the route.)
Alilaguna airport boat and shuttle: Take the Alilaguna Blue
Line to Zattere (one stop beyond San Marco) and transfer to
the Hilton Molino Stucky's free shuttle boat.
