There is a range of options to get from the airport to the heart of Venice, including buses, water taxis and reliable passenger ferry links. A taxi ride to Venice’s Piazzale Roma (the end of the road in the pedestrianised historic centre) costs €40 to €50, but from there you'll still need to either walk or get a water bus or taxi the remainder of the way. Alilaguna boats are likely to get you much closer to your final destination at least as fast.
The main reseller of public transport tickets, HelloVenezia, has a desk in the arrivals hall, where ACTV travel and Venice Card products pre-ordered through the VèneziaUnica website (www.veneziaunica.it) can also be picked up.
The dock for water transfers to the historic centre is a 10-minute hike from the arrivals hall (exit left out of arrivals), largely beneath a covered walkway. Luggage trolleys (requiring a €1 deposit) can be taken to the dock.
