    Getting around

    Public Transport

    The main mode of public transport is the vaporetto (public boat network). Operated by ACTV (tel: 041 2424;, the service is efficient and punctual running between 8am to 10pm. Lines 1 and 2 ply the Grand Canal. Tickets are purchased at booths at most landing stations and timed travel cards (from 12 hours up to 1 week) are much better value than single fare tickets. Swipe your card every time you board.


    Licensed water taxis (tel: 041 240 6711) are available at a premium price, although the cost is mitigated for large groups. Additional fees apply for hotel pick-ups and night trips. Tipping isn’t necessary.
