I have never experienced such an impolite place for left-luggage. The people working there are very rude and the price is far too high!! € 6,-- for each piece of luggage for 5 hours. Unfortunately there are no key-boxes at the station. You have to...More

Probably the cheapest cuppa in town. Pay at the kiosk in the middle then take the ticket to the baristas. Really nice sandwiches too. Lots of locals buying. I had an amazing caprese for only €4.50. Quite nice tables upstairs to see the grand canal....More

Vaporetto tickets can be purchased at the stop, just downstairs from the train station. However, you may want to consider Piazza San Marco (St Marks Square) can be accessed by foot too and the walk through the narrow... More
