Water Transport

by hawkhead

And here's another potential silly question..... on the Grand Canal is there an "up" way and a "down" way? That is,for example, going "down" would one get off at Rialto Mercato and on the "up" way, get off at Rialto and cross the bridge? Or does the water transport zig-zig from side to side, calling at all stops? I feel I am over-thinking all this water transport (and I don't intend to use it much - too expensive, shoe leather is cheaper)but thought I would ask anyway!

They do the zig-zag that you described. There are at least 2 routes (41 and 42 if memory serves) that go either clockwise or counter clockwise around the island. And the way to know which stop you're at is by paying attention to the sign at the stop.

Thank you so much. Now I know!

If your stay on this webcam ( ) for a while, refreshing often, you will SEE how it works.
On the right there is the rialto waterbuses stops. Really, the floating stops are 2 (one for the way) but both on the same side of the canal. There is no need to build 2....

You might find the attached link useful - a map of the various routes and the stops (click on the route number for details of the stops):

Its easy enough once you get the hang of it, the Circular Lines 41 & 42 are good for going out to the islands, the DM line quick (direct) for Murano and for inital sightseeing the no 1 goes slowly along the length of the Grand Canal stopping at every stop.

Thank you all

Services zig-zag from one side of the canal to the other. All pontoons are served by vaporetti travelling in each direction.

Also suggest you buy a 24-hour ACTV rover ticket. Unlimited bus and vaporetto travel.

Offhand, I think the website is, but not sure without checking. Pump ACTV VENEZIA into Google, and see what you come up with!

Re: Water Transport

Many thanks. Unfortunately, (for economies of water travel) we are staying nearly five weeks so a 24/48/72 hour ticket isn't much use, especially as we will only use the water transport on the odd occasion. Still thinking about getting the "abbonamento" but not sure if we will actually use it enough to make it cost-effective.

It is actually quite an inexpensive and fun way of sightseeing: €12 return with the no. 41 waterbus all along the Canale Grande down and back up. One has a splendid view of all the palazzis along the canal.

May possibly do it the once.

Travel Tips for Venice


by flydoll

I loved going to Murano, Burano, and Torcello for the day. They are mellow and of course totally geared for the tourists...esp Murano & Burano. My fondest memory was spending a day on Torcello. It seemed to be standing still since the 15th century, There is an old church there, the roses grow up the side - they are an intense bright blood red. The feeling you get is of time standing still and there are places where the wild grass is a few feet tall.

I sat in the church - it was cool and very peaceful. Another time there was a service on and with media folks..don't know what. But it was great to observe a local ritual.

It is so serene and quiet. And then I had lunch at the cafe not far from the church. It was incredible. It was a simple zucchini ravioli with zucchini sauce and zucchini french fries sprinkled on top. I was amazed at the simplicity and yet quality.

If you get a chance and want to slow down and step back in time - go to Torcello!

Sometimes - when it gets really busy for me - I think of that day and invariably I smile and feel peaceful.

Venice is divided in 6...

by venusia

Venice is divided in 6 quarters called 'sestieri': CANNAREGIO, S.POLO, S.CROCE, S.MARCO, DORSODURO and CASTELLO.
The addresses of the places don't refer to the name of the streets ('calli'),but to the civic numbers in the quarters.

(Each quarter has got almost 5-6000 numbers.)


by croisbeauty

To the north-east of Venice, about 10km from Saint Mark's, four little islands make up Burano. Canals, narrow houses painted in pastel colours or decidely contrasting with the single shades of the lagoon, interweave with sails and fishing boats.
The island was already known in antiquity for the trade in fruit and vegetables which the people of Burano plied with the mainland, but what really brought fame to the island was the craft of lace-making.

The drink of Carnevale is "Bellini", a peach flavored sorbet. Tents are set up in San Marco which sell Bellini, and spiced wine, by the cup or bottle. (We chose bottle!).

Proper Clothes for Visiting Churches (I)

by Zvrlj

Visits of churches in Venice are things to do and there is dress code for that which is obliged. It is necessary to avoid mini skirts or pants, tops… everything that uncover shoulders and knees. Unless you are properly dressed you will not be allowed to enter a church.

In some churches there are paper covers which can be bought for several Euros, but it is unnecessary expense.
