The overhaul is long overdue. Piazzale Roma is Venice's entry point for visitors coming in by bus, car and now the People Mover. It needed a bit of updating. In this case, the changes are all good.
The bus stop locations have changed around a bit, so it's going to be confusing until we all get accustomed to the new spaces and numbering. But with a little patience, it will all sort itself out. On the plus side, the renovations are done. It was a bit of a nightmare having to deal with the buses being located out on Tronchetto for several weeks, and not knowing exactly what was where. I wondered why this all had to be done in August, the busiest and hottest time of the year!
The grand re-opening ceremony has taken place. Even Mayor Orsoni got in on some ribbon cutting. Piazzale Roma is looking brand new.
Next renovation project: Accademia Bridge. Stay tuned for updates.
