Such an easy way to get around the city and surrounding islands. I paid for the three day ticket before our visit, scanned the code on my phone at the vaporetto stop, and out popped the ticket!

The water bus was really a scenic and cheaper way of sightseeing the canals of Venice. The route covers almost the entire Venice circle.

Πολύ ωραία εκδρομή, είδαμε και τα τρία αξιοθέατα από 45’. Ήταν ότι πρέπει, δεν κουραστήκαμε καθόλου

The highlight was Burano… would have been more than happy to spend more time there.

Trip was really nice and guide very helpful with info
