vaporetto in Venicefrom all the information I 've seen so far a single vaporetto ticket (valid for 1 hour on all central lines) is 7 €. Seems outrageous! Do the locals, the residents pay so much ? Our hotel is close to St. Lucia railway station, and going/coming to the hjgh-lites twice a day would sum up to 28 € per day and person. Sure there are alternatives. Please help! Thanks!

2There is a pass available (I think its for 3 days) if you don't like the idea of walking ;-)
When i go to Venice i walk though..unless i particularly need to go to a specific smaller island,in which case I buy a ticket just to go there.
Maybe someone else has more information on the vaporetto pass..Craig?

5In 2013 the single vaporetto fare is 7 euro (good for one hour from the time it's stamped) but if you plan to spend much time on the vaporetto system, it's wise to buy a travelcard that can be bought at any vaporetto ticket office or online through Venice Connected. Travelcards are good for both water and land transport in the Venice area (land services on the Lido and in Mestre). Here are prices as of May 2013:
•18 € - 12-hour travelcard
•20 € - 24-hour travelcard
•25 € - 36-hour travelcard
•30 € - 48-hour travelcard
•35 € - 72-hour travelcard
•50 € - 7 days
•18 € - 3-day youth card, ages 14 - 29

7Instead of a Vapereto, you can take a traghetto instead for 2 Euros as a tourist. A traghetto is a gondola 'ferry'. Or if you you're going to be in Venice a while you can buy a imob card, and pay the local rate of .70 Euro cents.
