Walk out of Venice Marco Polo Airport and catch the No 15 Bus. Note not the airport bus (No 5) as this takes to Venice not the station.

Buses run every half an hour, xx15 and xx45.

Bus takes about half an hour from airport to station.

Need to buy ticket from machine before boarding the bus.

Choose Urban Routes, and select number of tickets required. Cost 1-30€ for single ticket.

Seats on the bus plastic bucket seats. Not as bad as they look.

It is about half an hour from the airport to the station.

The station is not obvious! No grand station building.

Look out for railway tracks on the right. Next stop, station.

A return ticket to Bassano del Grappa just under 10€.

Once purchased, you will need to validate the outward ticket in a machine.

Trains are around every hour.

A rather tedious journey through not very exciting countryside. Very flat.

Train overcrowded, hot, standing room only. Advantage of standing by door, cooler. Seats horrible plastic seats.

At Bassano del Grappa, catch a taxi to where staying.
