Venice Cruise Ship Port to Hotel Shuttle Service

Venice Cruise Ship Port to Hotel Shuttle Service

Enjoy the beauty of Venice from the moment you step off your cruise ship.

Access Venice the easy way!

Reach your Venice hotel without stress – take the shuttle transfer. A comfortable motor boat will take you and other passengers to your Venice hotel, directly from the “Marittima” Cruise Ship Terminal. This way, you won't have to carry your suitcase across bridges, onto the boat bus (vaporetto), or along little streets – and you can enjoy the beauty of Venice from the moment you step off your cruise ship.
