Our week here is up and the best deal we had was to get the weekly vaporetto ticket. They are reliable and go everywhere.

Venice offers a really simple transport system via water bus. Prices are reasonable 7.50 per trip. You can get passes which are vetter value for money. For us €15 each to the airport was excellent. The staff were great and the boats were on time....More

Get a multi pass for this , much better than €7.50 per sector! Can get very busy, beware of standing near the sides, especially during docking, you may get wet!

Water bus was excellent. Daily ticket was brilliant. Spent loads of time up and down canal. Lots of great buildings to view

The Vaporetto service (busses on water) are the best cost effective way to travel around Venice. The best option is to get a 1 day (Euro 20) or 3 days pass, this works out much cheaper than purchasing a single trip ticket (Euro 7.50)

If you need to get to many places in Venice, it is probably most economical to buy day pass. It runs regularly and is efficient!

But a ticket for the period you are here and then just hop on and hop off. They are busy and fast and they make you feel part of the city. Although it is great to walk and get lost and then find your bearings...More

The vaporetto is the most most affordable way to travel around. Sometimes it is easier just to walk. I did not like the overcrowded boat and having to stand for extended periods of time. They seem too be pretty worn out and very loud if...More

Easiest and cheapest way to see the city, hop on hop off. Buy a weekend pass which makes Vaporetto very cost effective. Essentially they are water busses with no frills but very handy.

This is the very handy water bus for Venice that will drop you at various points along the canal. It's also a nice way to see the sights between destinations. It's €7.50 a trip so opt for unlimited if you can/need to.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

We managed with two extra large hard shell suitcases & two smaller ones. Little ‘stressful‘ getting on and off but mainly because cases were so heavy. Vaporettos were busy but we had no problems.

As per other answer. You have not mentioned how long you are staying. You may want to consider an all day ticket as the ticket machines can get a bit busy out away from the station and you may be in a bit of a rush to board.
