Passes in Venice

My husband and I will be in Venice for a week in May.

Any recommendations on passes to acquire there?
We like museums and churches and probably will get a Vaporetto pass for the week.

Thanks!

I can't see how it's possible to spend a holiday in Venice without a vaporetto pass. Unless you plan to spend your time on the beach at the Lido, I really think it's impossible NOT to use vaporetti so often as to get value for money.

On the other hand, we've never worked out how to get value from museum and church passes. If you really know, to the last Tintoretto, what you're going to visit, just do the sums.

We're averse to urban preplanning: in any decent city, what we do next is inevitably going to be influenced by what we've just seen ("there's another drawing by Gondoletto in Santa Maria della Responsibilita Permanente in the next Campo"). Even so, we've never used a Venice church or museum pass fully, or been dissuaded from a spontaneous visit by not having one.

Not that you asked but we are going back to Venice to pick up a cruise and taking gondola lessons and since you will be there for a week, that might be fun.

You could buy a Chorus Pass for 12 euro - valid for a whole year to visit 15 churches. Otherwise, it's 3 euro per church. You can buy the pass from any of the 15 churches.

Another vote for the vaporetto pass- so handy to jump on and off the vaporetti without having to buy tickets or worry about the cost of each individual ticket! Just buy the pass and you will feel so liberated.
