Find out about Venice Italy Port Marittima, consisting of five terminals used by cruise ships and ferries (to Greece).
If you’re coming to Venice via one of the larger cruise ships, your cruiseliner will anchor at either…
- Terminal 103,
- Terminal 107/108,
- Terminal 117, or at
- Terminal Isonzo 1-2.
Terminal 123, meanwhile, is the terminal you will use to get to one of theferries departing to Greece.
To move between central Venice and the Marittima terminals, you have several options.
The most popular option is to take “People Mover” land funicular, which travels the route:
Port Marittima (Cruise Terminal) – Piazzale Roma – Tronchetto
People Mover station is located just outside of the Venice Italy Port Marittima entrance, and using the system, you’ll be at Piazzale Roma / S. Lucia train station in 3 minutes.
If your cruiseliner has made anchor at one of the terminals a bit further away from the People Mover terminal, you can use an internal shuttle service (operated by Azienda Servizi Mobilità) to get here.
In addition to the People Mover, you can take a water shuttle, operated by Alilaguna.
Their water shuttles, departing every 20 minutes, travel the route:
Port Marittima (Cruise Terminal) – St. Mark’s Square
If you are coming to the terminal with your own car, the Marittima Cruise Terminal has (reservable) parking available for up to 2084 cars and 40 buses.
One of the most important services is the Passenger Information Desk, located in the arrival and departure areas.
At these points, you can get up-to-date information about…
- Things to do in Venice (including today’s events and exhibitions), and
- transportation options.
At the least, you should grab a copy of the free Venice map that is available at these points, but you can also make different types of reservations, including reservations for transfers.
If you need cash, there is an ATM located on the first floor of the Terminal 107/108, just in front of the terminal’s café.
For using some of that cash, there are several ‘Duty Free’ shops at the terminals (for departing passengers) 103, 107/108, 117, Terminal 1 Isonzo, Terminal 2 Isonzo, and S. Basilio.
Other services include:
- newstands (arrivals hall at Terminal 107 & outside the arrival hall at Isonzo 1)
- bars and vending machines (arrivals and departures areas),
- public phones, and
- luggage storage (plus lost & found) deposits (ground floor of Terminal 103, 107, 117, Terminal 1 Isonzo, Terminal 2 Isonzo and S. Basilio).
You can also use a porter service (www.portabagaglidelporto.it), to get your stuff transferred…
- to Port (Marittima Cruise Terminals, St. Basilio Cruise & Hydrophoil Terminal),
- to St. Lucia Railway Station, or
- to hotels throughout Venice.
