HOW TO MOVE AROUND VENICE AND ITS SURROUNDING GUIDE AND HINTS
When you arrive the first time in Venice is always difficult to understand how to move around. But also before you come it is hard to plan your arrival, especially if you need to get on a specific place with a big amount of luggages. And what about an excursion to the islands? And maybe planning a day trip to the close mainland towns and beauties.
BEFORE VENICE, PLANNING YOUR ARRIVAL
There’re 2 ways to reach your destination in Venice:
Let’s analyse both ways.
WHAT SHOULD YOU NOW ABOUT YOUR BOOKED TRANSFER
Since you’re taking a water taxi you’re travelling by boat through water canals. This is means that sometimes your boat transfer doesn’t reach the water gate of your hotel, maybe you need to walk few minutes and even to cross some bridges. Taking a view on GoogleMaps how far is your lodging place from the closest canal might be a good idea.
Moreover due to the too high or low tide the canal edging your hotel might be impassable, so sometimes you need to walk anyway to reach the entrance.
For this reason agencies provide tourist assistant to give you logistic and tourist info. If you need an assisted transfer contact us too.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU PLAN THE ARRIVAL BY YOURSELF
Here you have several options:
ACTV Vaporetto map
HOW TO MOVE IN VENICE TO VISIT THE CITY
The 124 islands are connected by around 400 bridges, so you can always walk. But for a faster and energy saver visit is better to use boats.
HOW TO GO TO MURANO BURANO AND TORCELLO
Here again you can use the public ACTV boat, in this case investing money on a water taxi option might be a better choice as taking a public water bus might take a very long time (from Venice to Burano more than 45 minutes) and often they are crowded, as there’re very few runs per hour.
