find ticket counters staffed by clerks at the left end of the station hall,
but if you want to avoid standing in line, use the automated ticket-vending
machines in the station. (You'll see two types: green "Regionale" machines
for trains to Mestre and other locations near Venice, and red Trenitalia
machines for destinations throughout the country.)
signboards and screens show train departure times and tracks.
Be sure to validate your ticket at the entrance to the train platform before
boarding the train. (Look for machines on posts near the tracks.) If you
forget, you'll be subject to a large fine.
If your train is departing from platform 15 to 23, bear left as you leave
the station hall and go to the second train shed, which is through a passage
beyond the deposito bagagli or left-luggage office.
