Hilton Molino Stucky Transportation
Getting to the cruise port from the Molino Stucky Hilton
If your ship is departing from the main Marittima cruise basin, you can take the Alilaguna airport boat's Linea Blu directly from the Hilton Molino Stucky to the port. The price was €8 the last time we checked. (See our Venice Airport Boats article for more information about Alilaguna.)
The San Basilio pier is used by small- to mid-size ships and river-cruising vessels. To reach it, take the Hilton Molino Stucky's free shuttle boat across the Giudecca Canal to (the boat's first stop). As you leave the boat dock, turn left and walk along the waterfront. In about 10 minutes, you'll reach the San Basilio cruise terminal. The walk requires crossing two bridges: One near the Zattere shuttle landing and another just before you reach the cruise pier.
Alternatively, you can spend €60 or so for a five-minute crossing to Marittima or San Basilio by private water taxi. (This is worth considering only if you're infirm, burdened with massive luggage, or traveling with a group.)
