New in Venice: “Il vaporetto dell’arte”

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!
