How to get to Venice from Jesolo

Find out how to reach Venice and its islands by car or by public transport.

By car

Venice, being connected to the mainland, can be reached by car by crossing the Ponte della Libertà (Liberty Bridge), which stretches for 4 kilometres between Mestre and the terminal at Piazzale Roma. This bridge allows the transit of cars heading towards the lagoon but once you arrive you will need to park your vehicle as transit beyond the terminal is not permitted.

Alternatively, you can choose to drive to the nearby resorts of Punta Sabbioni or Treporti, from where you can take a direct vaporetto to Venice.

From here you can choose the shortest route to Venice. Crossing the picturesque Lido, you will finally arrive at the S. Zaccaria stop, which is a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square.

Also starting from Treporti, Venice can also be reached via the famous islands of S. Francesco del Deserto, Burano, Torcello and Murano. From the latter, you can change to a vaporetto and quickly reach St Mark’s Square.

By bus

A convenient option is to take the ATVO bus shuttle from Jesolo to Venice (Piazzale Roma). Once there, using the vaporetto, you can choose from several scenic routes to reach the famous St Mark’s Square.

By motorboat

For an atmospheric experience instead, you can reach Venice directly on board the motorboats that depart from Punta Sabbioni, a location that can be easily reached by car and is organised with special paid parking facilities. Thanks to these motor ships, it is possible to explore Venice and its islands through sensational tours.
