Venice airport to Venice train station ??

Hello everyone,
I am taking the RS Best of Village Italy tour this summer. I will be flying into Venice and I need to get to Padova. Is the train station easily accessible from the airport? Do I need to buy a ticket in advance (here in the US) or can I just show up at the train station and get one for the train to Padova that same morning?

As always, thanks in advance for all the wonderful advice and tips that you can provide! :)

Gretchen, there is a bus from the Venezia-Marco Polo airport to Padova. Here's some info from

When exiting from the Arrivals, continue crossing the first lane. On the second one, search the exact stop turning on your right, the Padova stop is the last one at the right. Buy a ticket at the automatic machine as it costs 3,60€ instead of 5,00€ on the bus. You can select the ticket for Padova selecting other destinations in the menu.

There is a bus every 30 minutes on peak hours and one every hour in off-peak and it takes about 1 hour 10 minutes to get to Padova bus station (Autostazione – Piazzale Boschetti). You will arrive in Padova Bus station, from there you reach the railway station with buses number 9, 7, 19, 24 and then follow to your final destination (for the centre take the Tramway) or just reach by foot Corso Garibaldi crossing the Arena Gardens and from there you will find other bus routes.
