Venice Public Transportation: The public boats called vaporetti and motoscafi run almost constantly, and you'll seldom have to wait more than a few minutes for one to come along. The standard waterbus or autobus fare is a rather steep € 6,00 for the popular lines on the Grand Canal. However, you can save money with a 1-, 3-, or 7-day ticket.

Venice Vaporettos and Public Motoscafi

Public Motoschafi ou can buy the ACTV tickets at the ticket booths at the docks or the VE.LA. ticket offices. You can also buy tickets from one of the many authorised sellers (tobacconists’, newspaper stores and some cafés): remember to stamp your ticket in the yellow machine before getting on the vaporetto. Tickets are not sold on board the boats. If you find yourself on board without a ticket, inform the ACTV crew immediately so as to avoid paying a fine.

At the boat stop there are maps depicting the directions all boats stopping there are going: the vaporetto is an easy way to admire all the mansions and buildings that overlook the Grand Canal and the lagoon The Travel Cards are the most economical solution for people who want to get around Venice and its surroundings on Actv’s land and water services.
