Far more affordable than a traditional gondola—and traveling the same scenic canals—is a ride via motorized Venice vaporetto. Think of it as public city bus on wheels, but with a far better view. Follow us on social network search for "muoversivenezia"

Overpriced and very ordinary boat trips. The daily run-around for the locals. Nothing to envy! Bumpy and stinking of diesel fuel. Rarely you might get to hear directions over the public announcements which would really help as one has to struggle to get accustomed to...More

These water taxi's are great because they go up and down the canal just like a bus service , you can get on and off when ever you like , so visiting lot's of places up and down the canal is a must

at 20 euros a day or 7.5 for a single trip this has to be one of the worlds most expensive 'metro' systems, but then the view is better than the london underground! the 20 euro ticket lasts 24hrs and that may well be the...More

A straightforward, reliable service. Easy to navigate and reasonably priced. €7.50 for 75 minutes of travel but 1/2/3 day tickets are also available.

If you are there buy yourself a travel card so that you can hop on and off to your hearts content as paying per trip is shockingly expensive. no 1 route takes you down the Grand Canal and there are other routes that will take...More

Loved the vaporetto, we stayed in the lido and the service was great. Efficient (not a word I expected to use to describe Italian public transport) clean enough and good fun too. Get the travel card and ride as much as you want. When our...More

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
