One of the unique aspects of Venice, Italy is that it is a city without cars, buses or cycles - you must get around either by foot or by boat!
The unique form of public transportation employed in Venice is known as the vaporetto ("little steamer" in Italian), a water bus that provides passage all throughout Venice and the islands of the Venetian lagoon. If you are visiting Venice on vacation, then it is worthwhile getting familiar with using the vaporetto water buses in advance as it will save you time, money and lots of potential confusion.
The vaporetto buses are easy to use once you understand how they work - and that's what this page is all about! Find out where you can go on the vaporetto, where to get tickets and how much they cost, as well as learn basic vaporetto "etiquette" so that you can share these boats happily with the local Venetians.
