The September 2020 vaporetto network map for Venice shows all the city’s public ACTV water-bus routes and stops, as well as the Alilaguna lines from Marco Polo Airport and lines to the Lido and other islands. You can print or download the pdf map to your phone. The map is updated twice a year, so beware of older versions!
For a precise location of each vaporetto stop, take a look at the street map of Venice. For timetables and passes, see below.
How do I get from Marco Polo airport to my accommodation in Venice?
An easy way to work out the best public transport route from Marco Polo Airport to your hotel or apartment is to use our route finder. Enter your destination in the box and you’ll see details of public transport options by land and water as well as links to privately run airport shuttle buses.
An alternative to land and water buses is a water taxi all the way to – or close to – your destination in the city. Water taxis are expensive unless you’re travelling in a group, but a shared water taxi works out much cheaper. Shared water taxis need to be arranged in advance.
Timetables and further information
Here’s a link to vaporetto timetables. Further information about public transport on water and land in and near Venice is on the websites of actv.it and veneziaunica.it.
Public transport passes
Vaporetto tickets are very expensive for non-residents of Venice (7.50 Euros for a one-way ride in 2020). So a transport pass may save money if you plan to use water-buses a lot.
