Travelling to Venice
There is a direct train from Munich central station to Venezia Santa Lucia (central station).
The train leaves Munich on Sunday, March 30 at 11:38 am and arrives in Venezia Santa Luzia at 18:30 pm.
For further details visit the Deutsche Bahn.
Several airlines offer flights to Marco Polo International Airport at Venice. From the airport you can either take a vaporetto (Alilaguna) or a bus to go to the centre of Venice.
The weather conditions for this time of the year sometimes predict "aqua alta", which means high tide. Be sure to bring water proof clothes and shoes!
The historic center of Venice is quite small so that you can walk to most of the interesting places from the hotels. In addition, you can take the waterbuses (called “Vaporetto”) across the famous Canal Grande or take other lines to travel to the small islands closeby. The transfer from the airport to the historic part of Venice is possible via bus or waterbus.
Once in Venice, you have to take the waterbus No. 20 to reach the conference venue on San Servolo. You can check the timetables via this website and buy tickets online (cheaper if bought several days before the conference).
You can buy waterbus tickets in Venice at the ACTV counters found at major waterbus/bus stations.
