I am taking the Alilaguna boat from Venice Marco Airport to the island. Which line and stop do I take on the Alilaguna to get to San Polo or as close as possible?Thanks so much in advance!
You'll want the orange line, but which stop depends on where you want to go in San Polo. If you're way up in the northern corner, San Stae might make the most sense, simply because it's on the correct side of the Grand Canal. Your second option is to get off at Rialto and cross the canal using the Rialto Bridge. The third option, and the one that will get you closest to Campo San Polo, is to take the boat to Sant'Angelo and then pay €2 to catch a traghetto across the canal to San Tomà. This is best attempted when traveling light (with a small suitcase you can easily lift or a backpack), but that's the case for all of Venice, really.
There are a few other options for getting into the city as well, such as the ATVO and ACTV buses. The latter is super-cheap if you combine it with a day or multi-day vaporetto pass. However you end up getting to Venice, have an amazing time!
