How to reach us
Via Orlanda is quite long, so navigator systems can be asked for "Via Orlanda near/crossing Via Flaminia". Also, some navigators recognize our road as SS14 / SR14; Mestre may not be recognized as a city on your navigator, since it is just the mainland part of Venezia.
From the highways
Coming from highways (or from "Romea" road, "E55"/"SS309"), looking for "VENEZIA" road signs you enter in the toll-free “Tangenziale di Mestre” (A57). In order to avoid the center of Mestre (mostly off-limits for cars), look for the exit “Mestre Terraglio-Ospedale-Treviso-SS13”: it's the first exit coming from North, after the A4/A27 junction, while it's the fifth exit, after "CASTELLANA" one, coming from South. If coming from Austria or Slovenia, the exit is "Venezia/Treviso/Triestina/aeroporto".Then, at the first roundabout, second exit, go on following the signs "VENEZIA": you'll pass one trafic light, then an underpass, then 2 more trafic lights. The road will bifurcate with a roundabout on the left, but go right and you will see Hotel Primavera on your right, a sand-coloured three storey bulding: the entrance is 100 m ahead, on the right, after the looping road will have brought you a little backwards.
You basically have to go out at the right motorway exit, then the second roundabout exit, then just always go straight on, always following the road signs towards "Venezia".
If you are coming from Marco Polo Airport, you just have to go straight towards Venice: after 11 Km, passing through the hamlets of Tessera and Campalto, you can find Hotel Primavera right after the end of the latter, after a roundabout
By bus, basic information
On Venice city lines ACTV the ticket is 1,50 € (8,00 € if departing from, or reaching, Marco Polo airport). You can buy the ticket in most newspaper or tabac shop, 'cause they are not sold on board on every line during daylight hours. Tickets must be validated when getting on board: just keep them, for half a second, in front of the white-greyish "IMOB" machine at the bus entrances; you'll hear a beep and a green light will briefly turn on. Done, the ticket is valid.
Onboard fare --tickets available only on Sundays or after 20.00-- is 3,00 €, but it's 8,00 € on "5"/"AEROBUS" line, and always available there. The "Tratta Aeroporto-Venezia" 8,00 € ticket will allow you to reach Venice too before it expires.
