People Mover to Marittima Cruise Port (2020)
The Venice People Mover offers a quick, inexpensive way to reach the Marittima cruise terminals from the Piazzale Roma, which is Venice's arrival and departure point for airport buses, taxis, and other wheeled traffic. (Venice's main Venezia Santa Lucia Railroad Station is just across a footbridge.)
The People Mover's automated trains shuttle back and forth between the Piazzale Roma and the Tronchetto parking island, with an intermediate stop at the Marittima cruise port. Travel time to Marittima is about one minute, and the modern stations are accessible to wheelchair users and passengers with heavy wheeled luggage.
We've been covering the Venice People Mover since April, 2010, when we shot videos during the People Mover's first day of operation.
In this article, we're doing something different: We're providing step-by-step illustrated instructions for cruise passengers who want to get from the Piazzale Roma to their ships at Marittima without hiring taxis, paying for expensive cruise transfers, or relying on shuttle buses (which aren't always available).
