Hotels near the cruise piers

People Mover station in Piazzale Roma

ABOVE: Cruise passengers wait for a People Mover tram at Piazzale Roma.

The Port of Venice has two pier areas:

Marittima is used by all large ships (and, sometimes, by smaller ships), while the satellite terminal of San Basilio and its adjacent pier of Santa Marta are used by small- to medium-sized ships, river vessels, and hydrofoil ferries to Croatia.

Marittima

If you're arriving or departing at Marittima, you have plenty of options. A People Mover automated tram runs between the Marittima cruise basin and Piazzale Roma, and airport boats of Alilaguna's Linea Blu stop at many locations in the districts of Dorsoduro, San Marco, and Castello.
