Very straightforward and the cheapest way to get from Marco Polo airport to Piazale Roma. We then went the rest of the way by water ferry (vaporetto). Instructions for getting the coach were clear, QR code worked well & the coach was modern with air con and Wi-Fi. Thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting to get from the airport to Venice.
