Bus Stop S.Marcuola 50-100 m
Venice lies on the major A4 autostrada that runs east-west across Northern Italy though the Po Valley, from Turin past Milan, Brescia, Lake Garda, Verona, Vicenza, and Padova to Venice (and on to Trieste).
Exit the A4 at Venezia-Mestre, and follow signs for Venezia - Centro Storico (or simply ones that say 'Venezia' with that little black-and-white bulls eye symbol, which is international for 'city center').
You'll end up on Via della Liberta' in Mestre. If you keep following signs for 'Venezia' and centro storico, Via della Liberta' becomes a causeway over the lagoon called Ponte della Liberta'.
On the other side of the causeway, you'll arrive at a large square called Piazzale Roma, which serves as a bus terminus and turn-around spot, because this is the only bit of Venice accessible by car crazy local artists like Sr. De Marchi, up on the left there in one of his floating wooden cars, notwithstanding. (See the map on the right for details; the big blue 'i' with a P under it marks the parking lot on Piazzale Roma.)
How to get to downtown Venice from Piazzale Roma
On Piazzale Roma there is a vaporetto (water bus) stop for the Grand Canal Lines 1 (commuter), 2 (express; the old Line 82) and N (night).
Follow signs marked with 'Actv' and make sure you get on the boat headed to the left to steam down the Grand Canal toward the center and Piazza San Marco.
