Directions to B&B Santa Croce Sestiere
Map & Directions
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 .
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.
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.
