Chioggia (VE) via Brondolo 13/A

The location we have chosen to conduct the “Quantum leap” training seminar is the Abrites Italy office – it has the capacity to accommodate us all and the vehicles we plan to perform the work and demonstrations to. It is in the beautiful Italian town of Chioggia, just south of Venice and has all the amenities needed for the purpose.

See you there!

Attending the European Automotive Expo in Chioggia, Italy, presents a fantastic opportunity to explore not only the latest in automotive innovations but also the charm of this coastal town in the Veneto region. Chioggia, often referred to as "Little Venice," is well-connected by various transportation methods, ensuring a smooth journey for visitors coming to the Expo. Here's how you can navigate your way to the event, including details about nearby transportation hubs:


By Air: Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE).

The closest major airport to Chioggia is Venice Marco Polo Airport, located approximately 50 kilometers north of the town. As a significant international hub, it offers a wide range of European and intercontinental flights. From the airport, you have several options to reach Chioggia: Bus and Vaporetto (Water Bus): A combination of bus services to Piazzale Roma in Venice and then a vaporetto to Chioggia. Rent a Car: Rental services are available at the airport, offering a direct and scenic drive to Chioggia via the SS309 road. Taxi or Private Transfer: For convenience, consider booking a taxi or a private transfer directly to your hotel or the Expo venue.


By Train: Rovigo and Padua Train Stations.

While Chioggia itself does not have a train station, the nearest major rail hubs are in Rovigo and Padua. Both cities are well-connected to the Italian railway network, with frequent services from major Italian cities and some neighboring countries. From Rovigo or Padua, you can take a bus or rent a car to reach Chioggia: Padua: About 45 kilometers west of Chioggia, with direct bus lines to Chioggia.
