We visited here on an overnight cruise stop and how lucky we were. It gave us the opportunity to take a vaporetto down the Grand Canal at sunset. The sights were magical, the atmosphere great and the cost amazing (7.5 Euros). Don't miss this one!

Not only is the Vaporetto (water bus), the least expensive means of water travel in Venice, it offers the most fantastic views of the historical Venetian building facades along the Grand Canal. While often overcrowded primarily with tourists, it is used by the locals as...More

Love the city bus. We had a great time cruising the Grand Canal. Great, fun way to get around Venice.

A best way to travel around Venice and its islands, one-day or multi-day ticket is recommendable. Don't expect luxury as those boats are often overcrowded, but it is not something you need. Check routes carefully. Enjoy!

Like most forms of transport in Italy it works efficiently. Locals, tourists alike use this form of transport. It gets very busy. We bought a day ticket for approx €20 so we could visit the islands of Murano and Burano which worked out well for...More

Buy a 2-day ticket for the Vaporetti - you will not regret it. Not only is it good fun, you will also see a side of Venice you otherwise would not be able to see. The Grand Canal is wider than I thought and the...More
