Venice is now Connected, ur-rah!

If this works, it could be a very good thing.

Active as of today, VeniceConnected.com guarantees you lower prices for a variety of venues and services (along with avoiding having to stand in line to buy them) if you book through their site. You must make your purchase at least 15 days in advance, but low, medium, and high visitation periods are colorfully indicated on the calendar you’ll use in the booking process, so you can determine when your savings will be greatest.

At the moment, you can  reserve parking, purchase public transport passes (from 12 hours to 7 days, good for ACTV vaporetto & land buses), Alilaguna airport transfers, museum passes, paid toilet services by the day or the week. Wi-fi access (city-wide availability due mid-year!) and Casinò entrance are included with any other purchases.

I’ve created a VeniceConnected article with more info, usage instructions, and some screen shots. If you use the site, do come back and post your experience with it.

    Hi Nan,
    I will be visiting Venice for 11 days (2/28-3/11) and because of your post was able to book my public transportation in advance at a disount. Thank you so much!

    I do have a question though (I tried to email you via the “contacts” on your site but there was an error.) Question- I am staying in the Dorsoduro area and can’t figure out if the wifi connection that comes with my transportation will work in this area. Do you know?

    Thank you!

    Audrey

    There are plans to expand Wi-Fi coverage, but there is no official schedule. I have a feeling once it’s city-wide, there’ll be a charge (although it might be worth it).

    St. Mark’s Square and the Park of San Giuliano are pretty big areas. How do you actually log on and where?
