POPULAR TRAIN COMPANY
Most passengers on trains to Venice will arrive at Venice Train Station, officially known as Venice Santa Lucia. This station is located in the Cannaregio district in the historic centre of downtown Venice. Venice itself is relatively small and geared toward pedestrian travel, so most destinations are walkable. That being said, there are also other forms of transport. The public water buses, or vaporetti, are an affordable option for getting around town. Line 1 can take you from the Venice trains at Santa Lucia station to the popular downtown areas of Rialto and San Marco. Service is affordable, frequent, and operates until late at night. If you have a lot of luggage, be prepared to pay a bit extra. You can buy single tickets or travel cards that range from one day to seven days. Another transport option are the private water taxis. Although they’re more expensive than the water buses, they can be faster and more customized.
For passengers with Venice train tickets who only have a few hours to explore the city, it’s possible to leave your luggage at Santa Lucia Train Station. Head to Platform 1 where you’ll find a privately run luggage storage service. It’s generally open seven days a week from early morning to late evening. Alternatively, if Venice trains bring you to the mainland Venice Mestre station, there are luggage services available there near Platform 1 as well. The operating hours and costs are similar at both stations.
The Santa Lucia Train Station is the most popular station for train passengers to Venice because it’s located in the historic centre of the island itself.

For questions regarding Venice train tickets, you may visit the ticket offices on the ground floor near the outer concourse. If you prefer to do it yourself, there are also plenty of self-service ticket kiosks with English language options. Alternatively, there is a travel agency that can provide assistance for an added fee.
Since Santa Lucia Train Station is mostly on one level, passengers with reduced mobility can access most services and amenities. This includes accessible restrooms, ticketing services, and dining options. Getting from the station to the public streets can be done through ramps to the right of the main steps or to the left of Platform 1. That being said, it’s advisable to contact Sala Blue offices ahead of your trip to double check on services. These offices deal with most accessibility services in Italy, and the offices at Santa Lucia station can be found near Platform 14. Opening hours are usually from early morning to evening. Staff at the office can provide passengers with wheelchairs, assist them on and off trains, and help them move around the station.
