We are staying a few extra days after a cruise terminating in Venice and are looking for methods of transportation from Venice Hotels to Marco Polo Airport for early morning(7AM)departure. Has anyone used transportatin for early morning departure from the Hotels to the Airport?

I was just recently in Venice and used the ATVO airport bus between the airport and Piazzale Roma (main bus station); it costs 5 euros if the ticket purchased in advance online. I chose a hotel right across the bridge, the Hotel Arlecchino, so it was very convenient. However, I just checked the bus schedule and the first bus is not until 5 am; it's about a 20 minute ride to the airport so that will probably not get you there in time.

You can get a regular land taxi from the bus station area as well; it runs about 35-40 euros. A water taxi runs about 100 euros which is way overpriced, but for many hotels the only method as they are directly on canals.

I was leary of staying near the bus station but it turned out to be wonderful. It had a quiet neighborhood feel and excellent helpful staff. All my transportation options were just a short walk away. When I visited Venice previously I stayed in the San Marco area which was crowded and overpriced. I found this following website very helpful for planning: http://europeforvisitors.com/venice/

Thanks for the information, very helpful.
