ACTV "Aerobus" to Piazzale Roma

ACTV is the public-transportation agency for Venice and its mainland suburbs. Its transit routes include the Linea 5 "Aerobus," which runs frequently between the airport and the city from about 4 a.m. until 1 a.m. and costs €8 one-way or €15 roundtrip. (See timetable in PDF format.)

Travel time from Marco Polo Airport to the Piazzale Roma is approximately 20 to 25 minutes, depending on traffic and how often the bus needs to stop for local passengers.

Because this bus costs more than  the faster and more comfortable ATVO bus, it may seem like a worse value. However, there are two reasons why it may be worth considering, especially if you don't have much luggage:

Where to buy tickets at the airport:

You can buy ACTV single-fare tickets at the public-transportation booth in the arrivals terminal, which also sells 12-hour to 7-day ACTV Tourist Travel Cards, ATVO coach tickets, etc.

Once you have your ticket, head for the sidewalk in front of the terminal and look for the ACTV stop. Wait for the No. 5 bus. (The route number and destination are shown on an LED display on the front of the bus.)

ACTV electronic ticket readerImmediately after boarding the bus, validate your ticket. (If you have the new card-shaped ACTV/Hellovenezia ticket, hold it up to the electronic card reader on the bus and wait for a green light; if you have a small old-style cardboard ticket, insert it in the yellow stamping machine.)

The No. 5 bus will stop a number of times on the 20-minute trip into Venice, so stay on board until you've crossed the causeway and reached the end of the line. For more information, visit the ACTV Web site.
