Marina Sant’Elena is the new marina in central Venice, the only one within walking distance of Piazza San Marco. It is a product of the long experience of the Marina Fiorita in the northern lagoon. As everyone knows, the City of Venice is a car-free archipelago and Sant’Elena can only be reached by boat. Marina Fiorita is on the mainland of Cavallino-Treporti peninsula. If you arrive by car, you can park at Marina Fiorita and travel to Sant’Elena by shuttle.
