Getting to the cruise port from the Molino Stucky Hilton

  • Tip: Our Google aerial photo map (page 4 of this article) shows both the Molino Stucky Hilton and the cruise basins. You can zoom in and move around on the map for more detail.

Marittima terminals:  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.)

  • Tip: Alilaguna's routes and schedules vary by season, and they sometimes change without warning, so check the Linea Blu timetable ahead of time. (You might also want to confirm departure times with the hotel's concierge or reception desk.)

San Basilio terminal: 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 Zattere (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.)
