I think the weather played a huge role in our horrible experience. It was very hot-high 90's, very crowded & very chaotic. It seemed like it would be an easy process. We bought the ticket, then waited in line, waited in line, got on the...More

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.

The water taxi can be confusing to tourists, as there are multiple lines to take, all going indifferent directions - and most signs are in Italian. The tickets agents that we dealt with spoke limited English and I speak limited Italian, so communication was difficult...More

If you get a multi day pass which includes a trip to/from the airport note that the airport transportation is a land bus not the water bus/vaporetto. This is pretty unclear and a bit misleading - at least the way it was sold to us....More

Nope, it's not the most comfortable means of transport in Venice > it can get really busy. But it's cheap and reliable. If you make sure you get the right boat to your destination you can't miss the beautiful sights of Venice. And you won't...More

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!
