Getting around Venice


Water public transportation

There are City Centre lines, that cross Venice mostly using the waterways of the Grand Canal (Canal Grande) and the Giudecca Canal. They leave from Tronchetto or from Piazzale Roma and go as far as the Lido (lines 1 and 2). There are also connections around the external lagoon perimeter of the city. City circle lines go as far as Murano and the Lido (lines- 3, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2, 6).
