Reaching Venice from Tronchetto
The No. 2 vaporetto, or public water bus, connects the island of Tronchetto with other parts of Venice. It runs year-round in two directions:
(Note: If you've traveled to Venice previously, you may remember the No. 2 vaporetto as the old No. 82 water bus. The line number was changed in 2008.)
To buy vaporetto tickets, follow the "Actv" signs to the brick building on the waterfront; go through the opening to the pier, where you'll find a ticket office. (If the ticket office is closed, try the Tabacchi or newsstand/cigarette shop next to the toilets and bar.)
An automated airport-style "People Mover" between Tronchetto and the Piazzale Roma opened in 2010. It's quick and much cheaper than the water buses. See our Venice People Mover article for how-to information, photos, and videos.
If you prefer a water taxi, use only the licensed water taxis at the pier next to the Actv stop, and be prepared to pay handsomely for the convenience. (See our Venice water taxis article for more information.)
