The vaporetto is a good option to get to your hotel. Walking the streets with suitcases would be difficult and take forever. The boats are clean and punctual.

This is the local bus service in Venice. For a place you can walk most places, except the the islands, its a bit expensive. Takes a bit of working out which routes go where, but it gets you where you need to go. You will...More

The vaporettos are a great way to get around. Rates vary depending on the distance you’re traveling. My advice is to get the 24 or 48 hour card. 20 and 30 euro each. You can use the vaporettos as much as you want. We used...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
