Water and Land Bus Fare Tables

  • (Note: If you're going to be in Venice for a couple of weeks and intend to use public transportation frequently, or if you plan to return to Venice in the next five years, see our article on the Venezia Unica long-term stored-value card (formerly imob.venezia), which offers big savings over the ACTV's high tourist fares. This should not be confused with the Venezia Unica Tourist Pass (formerly Venice Connected).

Updated Fall, 2014

Venezia Unica Tourist Pass
This pass (formerly the Venice Connected card) offers an a la carte package of transportation, admissions, and other tourist services with a frustratingly byzantine pricing scheme.
See Venezia Unica Tourist Pass article
* For an additional €3 (one-way) or €6 (roundtrip), you can travel between Venice's Piazzale Roma and Marco Polo Airport on the ACTV's No. 5 Aerobus. (This bus is cheaper but less comfortable than the ATVO airport coach on the same route.)
