Carta Venezia - any tips please?

Jump to last reply

We’re visiting Venice later this year (November to January for seven weeks). I’m thinking of buying Lou and I a CartaVenezia, which costs 40 Euro each, and gives one access to cheap vaporetto tickets – one Euro instead of the present six Euro for a two hour vap pass. It would pay for itself after half a dozen vaporetto rides, and is issued by ACTV, who operate the ferries and buses.

The CartaVenezia has a three year validity – Venetians can get it free, Veneto people get it for about ten Euro, and we foreigners pay 40 Euro. It’s not the same thing as the Venice card, which is good for a shorter period and is aimed at tourists.

Has anyone bought one of these passes? Was it a hassle to get? Any tips? Is it easy to use?
