Venice: Bus Tours
Queen of the Adriatic
Buses run to Venice from the mainland town of Mestre, from the city's two airports and from many nearby towns such as Treviso and Padua. There are many organized bus tours in and around Venice. Venice is an early-starting bus trip - with excursions from most companies leaving at around 06.00 and not returning until midnight. The trip down normally makes a couple of stops along the motorway in Italy. Some tour companies offer a private boat which will take visitors directly from the coach park (located on the outskirts of the island and some way from the centre) to St Mark's Square. A trip on the city's many water buses in Venice is a good way to cool off in the summer heat.
