FROM THE AIRPORT
There are several ways to get to the city center from the Venice airport Marco Polo:
WATER TAXI: speedboats docked just outside of the terminal can whisk up to five passengers and their luggage directly to Casa Artom for about 110 euros.
Call Casa Artom if you intend to arrive this way, as someone must unlock the Grand Canal entry way.
WATER BUS ALILAGUNA: a large boat that can accommodate around forty passengers. You must take the “blue line” which passes through the Lido and San Marco and costs 15 euros. In about one hour and twenty minutes, it takes you to the Zattere, about 10 minutes walk from Casa Artom. There is one every hour but check on the website, as the timetable could vary: http://www.alilaguna.it/
When you get off at the Zattere stop, ask for the Guggenheim Museum, as Casa Artom is next door.
GROUND TRANSPORT: you can get to Venice via taxi, city bus or airport blue bus. These take you to Piazzale Roma. From there you should take a “vaporetto”, Venice public transportation which ply the Grand Canal in either direction. Ask for “vaporetto” no. 1 direction ACCADEMIA. In about 25 minutes you need to get off at the Accademia vaporetto station, then ask for Guggenheim Museum, which is next door to Casa Artom. The Guggenheim has a distinctive wrought iron gate, which forms a right angle with No. 700, Wake Forest’s Casa Artom.
