Venice Vaporetto Fares


Updated August, 2019.

Here’s a brief summary of the public transit fares for navigation (i.e., the vaporetto) posted by the ACTV.

Single Ticket

€7,50 – Single water bus fare may be purchased in advance or on board. This ticket is good for one 60-minute journey on the Venice network (does not include Alilaguna airport transport or the Fusina or Clodia lines). It can be purchased at any ticket booth or on board. Do let the attendent know you need one as you board, to avoid the possibility of a hefty fine.

Unlimited-Use Travel Passes includes one item of luggage per passenger. These passes are valid for a specified number of hours from the time it’s stamped. Good for land, lagoon, and Lido public transport as well.

  • 20 – 24 hours
  • 3048 hours
  • 4072 hours
  • €72 – 1 week
  • 20 – Three-day Youth card, issued only upon presentation of the Rolling Venice Card (€4, ages 14 – 29), for purchase once you arrive from any HelloVenezia vendor.

Conference Card, Student, and organized groups – special requests.

Discounts for groups of various types. Reserved in advance through the offices of HelloVenezia, +39 041 2424. Valid from 1 to 8 days.

VeneziaUnica City Pass

If you are a frequent visitor to Venice, you might consider the Venezia Unica City Pass. It’s a significant investment if you’re not a resident of Venice or the Veneto (€50), but you can save money in the long term. See the ACTV site for complete information (scroll down to VeneziaUnica City Pass).

For complete info on transportation and events, see this post, or contact Venezia Unica at +39 041 2424 from 8a to 8p daily (English spoken).

Keeping an eye on the Grand Canal

Check out ARGOS , the new system for keeping watch over the Grand Canal. It’s pretty self-explanatory, and quite fun. Just like any congestion map, colors on maps to indicate the amount of traffic and the speed, and the closed-circuit cameras provide expansive views up and down the length of the Canal…and a lot clearer than the available web cams. The new Ponte della Costituzione is specatacular viewed from above, in fact.

Whether or not we can get them to issue tickets to the boats over the speed limit, that’s another thing entirely…
