This lagoon city’s main source of transportation is boats and there are no cars beyond the train station. Everyone knows this is a fantastic way to enjoy Venice is by water.

If you need or want to travel often by boat, then you can also choose to buy tickets for the ACTV water busses and see so much more of the city. You can really use the ticket to travel and see all corners of the city and get on and get off as you please. Most important is to scan the ticket every time you use it. The ticket is valid from the first scan until the time limit is used up. The water bus plans are easy to follow and each station has a large map and time schedules for the water busses that use it. To see most of the important Venice locations, the water bus number 1 is the best choice. Here you can find the information in English about the water busses and the cost of using their services: ACTV It is less expensive to purchase a time limited ticket, rather buying single tickets if you plan on making more trips. For example, the cost of a 48 hour ticket was 30 Euros as of February, 2017. A single ticket costed 7.50 Euros for 75 minutes. With 4 such trips, you already have invested the 30 Euros.

From the top of the tower at St. Mark’s square you can enjoy a remarkable 360° view of Venice. As of February 2017, the entrance fee costed 8 Euros per person. There is an elevator will bring you up to the top. Because it was February, there was no line on that particular Monday afternoon but the day before had a long queue waiting to go up.

Venice Carneval 12
Venice is already an attraction itself but when it is carneval time, it becomes even more worth to see. The best place to witness all of the beautiful people flaunting their fancy costumes and masks is also at St. Mark’s square. It was a wonderful feeling being there and the mood was cheerful and fun. This bella Donna was one of the many lovely people there on that particular day. More images of wonderfully costumed Venetians can be found here

From St. Mark’s Place you can walk towards the water and can walk along a pedestrian zone with many shops and restaurants. Here you will cross a few more bridges, including this one with a view to a leaning tower. Pisa is not the only city with such structures.

When walking through the city and its small streets, it is easy to lose your way. But you are never really lost. On many street corners you will find such yellow signs that will lead you in the main direction of larger well known locations. Here the sign at the San Antionio Bridge says “Per Rialto” which shows you the way to the Rialto Bridge.
