Because cruise terminals are such LARGE facilities, often covering several square miles, it is often difficult to pinpoint an EXACT address which you can put into your GPS.

Thus, the addresses we’ve provided below will at least get you within EYESIGHT of your cruise ship.
However, any parking garage you sign up with will provide you with an exact address on their site.

*Parking/transfer prices are estimates given by the cruise lines and garages. Prices are per person/per vehicle, one way and are subject to change.

Hotels

Hotels in Venice proper are very expensive. Many military spouses recommend nearby Mestre instead. If you stay in a hotel in Venice, be prepared to drag your suitcases many blocks and up stairs and over bridges to get to your hotel, as cars are not allowed. It’s called the ‘Venice Bag Drag’ and it’s a horrible experience if you’re a family with lots of luggage.

Hotel Antiche Figure - right across street from train station and cruise terminal in Venice, so least amount of DRAG required!

Best Western Bologna in Mestre, right next to train station, so it’s very convenient if you’re arriving by train, and very convenient for taking the train into Venice where cruise terminal is located.  Just a 10 minute ride!

Hotel Tritone in Mestre - very affordable, right next to train station, great breakfast, cappuccino, good wifi connection
