Venice is known for its network of alleyways and canals. With most of its medieval structures still standing tall, there are no roads that can accommodate vehicular traffic in Venice. The best way to get around Venice is by foot. The labyrinthine alleys allow you to get lost and explore the lesser-known parts of the city. Apart from foot, you can also use water taxis, Gondolas, Traghettos, and water buses.
The Alilaguna shuttle service takes you from Marco Polo airport to Venice city or vice versa. If you book the shuttle service online, you have your travel arrangements sorted out when you land at the airport.
Traghetti are large public Gondolas on the Grand Canal. They are useful to get from one end of the canal to the other. Unlike the touristy Gondolas, Traghetti are cheap and are also used by locals for commuting.
Venice is closed to all kinds of vehicular traffic since most of its streets are narrow. Moreover, the winding alleyways in the city are ideal for exploring the city on foot.
You may however use buses to visit places like Mestre. The Venice bus station is situated at Piazzale Roma.
Venice is a walkable city and is completely closed for vehicular traffic. However, if you want to rent a car for traveling outside Venice you can do it in car rental offices in Piazzale Roma.
The Alilaguna Shuttle service can transport you from the Marco Polo Airport to Venice at rates starting from €15. There are 3 lines that can take you from the airport to the Cruise terminal. However, all 3 lines go through different parts of the city.
The Blue line passes through San Marco, the Red line passes through Murano and San Marco and the orange line passes through Rialto and S.Maria del Giglio.
The Treviso airport is connected to Venice by road. There are many buses plying between the airport and Venice. The buses cost you €10 to €13 and take about 1 hour to reach. Alternatively, you can also take airport taxis. While taxis can be the fastest way to travel between Treviso and Venice, the cheapest option is the ATVO or Barzi shuttle bus services. Keep in mind that all motorized transport must stop at the Piazzale Roma terminal or the parking island of Tronchetto. From there you can take a water taxi or the Vaporetto ferry.
Google maps can sometimes show only a few sponsored places or may even leave out some narrow alleyways. Moreover, Google maps require internet connectivity. With Ulmon Venice travel guide, you can roam around the narrow alleyways with much ease. Furthermore, the map is available offline. Here’s a tip: When you’re using the map, try to look for landmarks instead of using your GPS coordinates. Since the streets are narrow and close by, GPS coordinates can be wrong.
This is a free official app developed to help both locals and tourists to locate ferry points and water labels at various parts of the city. The app also gives you updates on flooding levels in a few locations. This can come in handy, especially in the rainy season. The app is developed in collaboration with the ICPSM- Venice’s premiere forecasting organization.
CheBateo helps in planning your Vaporetto routes around Venice. The app provides easy-to-view ACTV timetables. You can also favorite your routes so that you don’t have to type them every time you go in them. Furthermore, the app also tells you the Vaporetto routes that pass through and stop at a particular stop.
