How to reach Venice from Lignano
Are you in Lignano Sabbiadoro and are you planning to organize a day trip to Venice?
Surely it’s a great idea! Venice is located at only 100 km from Lignano Sabbiadoro and can be reached in just over an hour’s journey.
But there are several ways to get there and therefore in this article we will do our best to give you all the information you need to better organize your trip to Venice.
To reach Venice by car, simply take the Latisana motorway towards Venice, as far as the Venezia/Mestre/Porto exit.
However, this is a rather inconvenient solution, due to the often intense traffic. It is also necessary to pay the motorway toll and parking in Venice is quite expensive.
One of the cheapest parking places in Venice is the “Tronchetto Parking“, where parking for cars goes from € 3.00 per hour to € 21.00 per day.
The most convenient and economical way to reach Venice from Lignano Sabbiadoro is definitely the train. The nearest train station is in Latisana, less than 20 km from Lignano.
You can easily reach Latisana by car in about 20 minutes or with one of the many buses leaving from Lignano more or less every hour (for timetables click here).
Once you arrive in Latisana, we suggest you to park your car in the free parking lot near the bus station, right next to the train station.
Parking is generally secure, but we strongly recommend that you don’t leave valuables in the car.
From the train station it is possible to reach Venice by train in just over an hour, at a cost of around € 15.00 for return trip. The final destination to get off is Venice Santa Lucia, although it is likely that you will have to change trains in Venice Mestre. On the website www.trenitalia.com you can find all the information on train schedules and purchase your tickets online.
By bus + boat:
If you want an option a bit more romantic than the train, but you do not want to spend a lot on a boat trip, this is the right alternative for you: the ATVO offers a transport service that will take you by bus from Lignano Sabbiadoro up to the tourist port of Punta Sabbioni (Cavallino), then reach Venice by boat landing in the heart of Piazza San Marco.
All this for only € 25.80 return ticket (service available only from Monday to Friday).
If the idea of going by bus to Cavallino doesn’t excite you and you want to make the whole journey by boat, the Armonia Viaggi organizes from Monday to Thursday the daily cruises that leave directly from Bibione. The service, including bus transfer from Lignano and accompanying person for the duration of the trip, costs € 50.00 per person return (€ 26.00 for children under 12 years).
