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:
- No. 2 Piazzale Roma - Ferrovia - San Marco. This boat heads toward the
train station, then goes up the Grand Canal to the Piazza San Marco with
stops at the Rialto Bridge and a few other points along the way.
- No. 2 San Basilio - Zattere - Giudecca - San Zaccaria . This route takes
you up the Giudecca Canal, ending at San Zaccaria (just above the Piazza San
Marco). In high season, the boat continues on to the Lido.
(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
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.)
For more information about public transportation in Venice, see our articles on
vaporetto routes and
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.
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.)
