Venice Vaporetto Fares (2020)

The fares listed in the table below are for visitors to Venice and its suburbs. Prices for single boat trips are shockingly (some might say "obscenely") high, so consider buying a one- to seven-day Tourist Travel Card, a Venezia Unica pass for long-term visitors and residents if you'll be in the city for a while, or--less desirably--a Venice Connected pass for tourists.

For tips on where and how to obtain tickets, see our articles about Buying Vaporetto Tickets and ACTV Ticket Machines.


Money-saving tip:

Adult standard one-way fare
Biglietto di corsa semplice
(Good for 75 minutes after validation on all routes of the Venice transportation network except the Alilaguna, Fusina, and Clodia lines. You can use more than one line to reach your destination, but return trips during the 75 minutes are not allowed.)

Disabled fare
Valid for 75 minutes; limited to passengers in wheelchairs. A companion may travel free.
Roundtrip beach ticket (Lido di Venezia)
This return ticket is valid on Line 14. You can take the motonave (a large multi-deck waterbus) to the Lido SME station from either Venice San Zaccaria (above the Piazza San Marco) or Punta Sabbioni. Once you're on the Lido, you can use the ticket to ride local buses.

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
Venezia Unica Card for Regular Users
This stored-value card costs €100 for non-residents, but it's valid for five years and lets you buy vaporetto tickets at cheap residents' rates. (It also gives you a big discount on Alilaguna airport-boat fares.)
See Venezia Unica for regular users article
* For an additional €6 (one-way) or €12 (roundtrip), you can travel between Venice's Piazzale Roma and Marco Polo Airport on the ACTV's No. 5 Aerobus. (This bus is less comfortable than the ATVO airport coach on the same route.)
