There is a 12 euro shuttle (per room) from the airport to the hotel or you can take the local bus that stops in front of the hotel. From the hotel to Venice, you can take the public bus...Welcome...
Airport bus with luggage space cost 4.50 euros per person and takes just 20mins. This is what we plan to take to Venice. Public bus from Mestre to Venice is just 1 euro (I read), and very short distance (3mins) across the bridge based on google map. FYI.
We did consider staying at Mestre as well but decided not to as we will only arrive after 2pm on June 2 and wanted to get to Venice asap since we only have half a day. Also a bit concern with having to take public transport back to Mestre at night. We wanted the flexibility of walking around Venice without worrying about the transport schedule.
