Venice for 2 days

Jump to last reply

In Venice from 10:00 AM Saturday - 7:00 PM Sunday. Have hotel (Domus Ciliota) in San Marco, 200 yds from San Samuele stop on Grand Canal. Although I'm a healthy 64 yr old I'm afraid of wearing myself out trying to do all the walking required to cover the sights I'm trying to squeeze into the 2 days. Since most of what I plan to visit is within 200 yards of the Grand Canal, wouldn't it make sense to purchase the 36-hour ACTV travelcard offered on //venice>connected for 21.85 euro? Do I need to get a vaporetti schedule? The guide books say they pull to the stops "frequently"---does that mean about 15 minutes or more like 45? None of the sites or guide books I've explored mention directionality. Can I board a vaporetto going in either direction at the stops, or is there a correct side of the Canal to be on in order to get a water bus going in the direction I want to go?
