Vaporetto or waterbuses are the way the masses travel in Venice, whilst they are not quite as romantic as a gondola they are a fraction of the cost and are a great way to get around and see Venice. The vaporetto network has some 22 lines (some of which run seasonally) including countless lines along the Canal Grande and connections with practically all of Venice’s surrounding islands such as Murano, famous for its blown glass.

Single use tickets start from €7 for 60 minutes, while tourist travel cards offer a much better value for most visitors, allowing unlimited travel for periods from 12 hours to 7 days.

Note: remember to stamp your ticket in the yellow machine before getting on the vaporetto.
