Very good to view the palazzo from the grand canal but it can be very crowded and a little expensive . However especially in the evening when the sun go down the colour are beautiful. Prime,view of the rialto . A must do once when...More
We took the vaporetto water bus from Piazzale Roma to St Mark's Square all along the Grand Canal and it did not disappoint.
You will find that most hotels will sell you the tickets which are priced at 7 euros 50 cents and they are...More
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
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.

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!
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.
