From Venice Marco Polo Airport, Venice’s Lido is easily reached by a combination of buses and vaporetto (water service):
Take the Aerobus Line 5 from Venice Marco Polo Airport to Piazzale Roma and then take the vaporetto (see details for reaching “By water”;).
The trip takes about 1 hour and the vaporetto stops at Lido Santa Maria Elisabetta (S.M.E.) and Lido Casinò (stop at the Casino Palace).

From the Arrivals area of the Venice Marco Polo Airport, look for the covered shelter on the left and follow the path for 7 minutes until you reach
the “Darsena”. From the airport dock there is a water service with links to Venice, the main islands and Venice Lido.
