T1 tram Mestre-Venice in Piazzale Roma

ABOVE: A T1 tram from Mestre arrives at Piazzale Roma, the gateway to Venice's historic center.

ACTV, Venice's transit authority, opened a new T1 tram line between Mestre and Venice's Piazzale Roma in September, 2015. (An older line, the T2, runs on a different route within Mestre and surrounding areas.)

A hotel along the T1 tram route is worth considering if you're traveling by car, because you can park your car in Mestre, jump on the tram, and reach Venice in 15 minutes or so. (Parking in Mestre is much cheaper than in Venice, and many of the hotels on this page offer free parking.)

If you've arriving or departing by air or rail, we suggest staying closer to the Venezia Mestre railroad station and its ATVO Fly Bus stop. (See our listings for Mestre hotels and Marghera hotels near the station.) Still, for air travelers, there is another option: Take the Venice airport bus from Marco Polo airport to Venice's Piazzale Roma, then catch a T1 tram to your hotel.

Please note:

  • Most of the hotels on this page are along the eastern half of the T1 tram line (the red line between Mestre Centro (Piazzale Caldini) and Venezia Piazzale Roma) on this map. You may need to walk two or three blocks from your hotel to the nearest stop.

  • Trams run about every ten minutes from early morning until late evening. ACTV has a timetable in PDF format that shows feriale (weekday) and festivo (Sunday and holiday) schedules. You can buy ACTV tram/bus tickets at tobacconists, newsstand, and most hotel reception desks. (Be sure to validate your ticket by holding it against the electronic reader after boarding.)
