A wonderful way to explore Venice’s famous Grand Canal is by Vaporetto (a passenger transport boat). Although the canal is no longer filled with merchants and traders shipping their merchandise through Venice, but this is the best way, with a little imagination, to learn about and understand how Venice functions, the Grand Canal being the main thoroughfare.

On this boat ride you will see a lot of Venice’s historical sites and beautiful houses and buildings.

Vaporetto tickets can be purchased at most stops, at tabacchi (tobacconists), at Hellovenezia offices and onboard the Vaporetto (only single tickets).
