Consider buying a Tourist Travel Card ACTV, which entitles you to unlimited use of the waterbuses (vaporetti) serving Venice and the islands of the lagoon, and to unlimited use of ACTV Mestre land bus service to and from Venice and in Mestre itself—and land buses on Lido.

ACTV Tourist Travel Cards, which can be purchased either on line, at the airport, in Mestre, or in Venice, are a tremendous bargain that will pay for themselves many times over during your visit to Venice. Although the on line discount is no longer available, the links below will provide information about cost and card selection, regardless of where you plan to make your purchase.



Buses taken from the airport now cost €6—or €4 if purchased with the ACTV Tourist Travel Card.

And check out "Arriving and Departing" top right, along with "Transport and Other Passes" which was updated by I heart Venice recently, so is bang up to date.

You can buy a Tourist Travel card as stated, but there are not on line discount ones anymore, if you buy on line it is the same as buying in Venice,
