If you are going to Santa Lucia, pay attention so that you don't get off too early at Mestre accidentally. Some trains stop at both Venice stations, while others stop at only Santa Lucia. Once at Santa Lucia, there's a vaporetto stop right outside the station on the Grand Canal.

Porta Nuova is Verona’s primary train station. It opens onto Piazzale 25 Aprile, which is also Verona’s main hub for city and regional buses. The train station isn’t right within the historic center, but there are frequent buses from the piazza into the center.
