Venice passes....confusing as heck!

Jump to last reply

Ok, we (family of four, kids 16 and 18) are to be in Venice for 5 days (120 hours). Overall, depending upon the weather, don't plan to spend excess time in museums. THINK I would like transportation passes...don't think the Chorus pass (churches) are too big an interest as we are headed to Rome and will get plenty there!

We WILL do St. Marks, Doges Palace, Secret Itineraries (booking directly to save a few bucks, opinions?) Correr Museum, more?

SO, I can buy passes, or pay as I go.

Transportations passes: Two ROLLING VENICE passes for kids (18 each) that gives them a 72 hour transit pass, 2 adult 72 hour at 35 euros....so 106 euros for 72 hours transportation.

PLUS

Museum passes: 20 euros each for the "Museum pass", for 80 euros total (although I see they offer a family discount)

TOTALS: 106 + 80 = 186 euros

OR PAY AS I GO, at 7x4=28 for a vaporetto trip, this adds up fast...and I guess you get to skip some lines, or get in faster, shorter lines with these passes? Not to mention museum entrances...

OK, so best to pick it up there at the train station? Buy it in advance?

Your thoughts? Is this Rolling Pass redundant with the museum passes? Thanks for any tips or thoughts.
