Venice Transport


All the information you need on how to get around Venice: WATERBORNE and AUTOMOBILE ROUTES, ticket prices and how, when and where to buy them. All about Transports in Venice.

When you decide to take a holiday in Venice you’ll also need to give some thought as to whether you are going to tour the city on foot or using one of the convenient forms of transport that will allow you to get to every part of the city. If you want to visit the islands then you will have no choice but to take a public motoscafo or vaporetto water-bus unless, of course, you have your own boat.

Ticket prices for the vaporetto water-buses are not exactly cheap but there are many time-based alternatives that are more cost-effective. The Transport in Venice section has all the information you need about this.

It is also possible to buy an IMOB card for €10/30 (lasts for three years) that entitles you to purchase tickets at €1.30. If you’re a frequent visitor to the Lagoon this has to be the most convenient and cost-effective option.

Concessionary fares are available for young people and those with disabilities wanting to use the public transport system in Venice. For example: a wheelchair passenger pays €1.30 and the ticket is valid for 75 minutes. We’d also like to remind you that if you are a wheelchair user there are special routes (short but in the very centre of town) that provide ramps for accessing bridges with ease.
