Reaching Venice from Tronchetto

Water bus

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 2008.)

Actv signTo 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 vaporetto fares.

People Mover

Tronchetto People Mover signAn 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. 

Water taxis

Venice water taxiIf 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.)
