Santa Lucia Station Tours

4 reviews
If you are arriving in Venice by train from another Italian or European city, you will likely catch your first glimpse of La Serenissima from the Santa Lucia Station (Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia), the city’s main train station and principal transport hub located in the Cannaregio district. 

The Basics
The station’s mid-20th-century modernist building was designed by architects Angiolo Mazzoni and Virgilio Vallot, and is set directly on the north bank of the Grand Canal. If arriving for a day trip by high-speed train from Florence or Rome, you can catch the vaporetto (water bus) or a water taxi and float up the Grand Canal and under the Rialto Bridge to Piazza San Marco, where the city’s main sights are concentrated. Otherwise, you can also walk into the center of Venice either through Cannaregio—the largest and most populated of Venice’s six central districts (sestieri), and home to the historic Jewish ghetto and Ca' d'Oro Palace—or cross the Ponte degli Scalzi bridge into the Santa Croce district, where Palazzo Mocenigo, the Museum of Modern Art in Ca' Pesaro, and the San Stae church are located. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The train station has a baggage deposit, perfect if you are stopping in Venice for a day trip. 
  • The building is accessible for those with limited mobility, as are many of the city’s vaporetto water buses.
  • There are a number of small cafés and coffee bars in and around the station for a light meal or snack. 
  • The public restrooms are located on the main floor of the station.

How to Get There
High-speed trains from Florence, Rome, and Milan arrive at the Santa Lucia station, as do international trains from across Europe. All cross the Ponte della Libertà bridge from the mainland to the Venetian islands.

When to Get There
Day trips to Venice by train generally arrive in the early morning hours; if you are coming to the Floating City to stay for a few days, time your arrival after sunset for a spectacular first view of Venice’s Grand Canal by night.

Mestre: Venice’s Second Train Station
The Mestre Venezia train station is the city’s second rail hub, located on the mainland. To reach the Venetian islands from Mestre, visitors must take the bus to Piazzale Roma located across the lagoon near the Santa Lucia train station.
