Have you planed to visit Venice, its museums and monuments? Starting from today, 1st June 2012 it ‘s easier to do it!!! Thanks to “Vaporetto dell’Arte”, a new waterbus line dedicated to tourists, you can discover the city without worries.
Leaving every 30 minutes from Santa Lucia Railway Station to San Giorgio Maggiore, Vaporetto dell’Arte runs every day from 9 am to 8 pm along the Grand Canal (on both sides) and stops close to the most interesting museums and monuments of the city. It can transport about 80 passengers and works like a sightseeing bus: you can hop on and off as you like all day long, but of course it is a boat not a bus!
Tickets are available at the main vaporetto stops or soon on line at www.veniceconnected.com (if you buy them on line, you will get a reduced price…).
- 22€ per person
- 10,00€ for owners of tourist travel card ACTV
- Children (0-5 years) travel free of charge.
Together with the ticket you will get also a city map, discount coupons and other information about cultural institutions, whilst on board audio and video tools will provide you information about the journey and cultural events of the day. Moreover it is also possible to buy group tickets (min. 20 persons) and a supplementary ticket at a special price allowing the use of all other Vaporetto lines.
Here you can check the Vaporetto dell’Arte stops and the museums or monuments located nearby them.
