Venice Travel Guide

Getting Around Venice

As you might expect from a city famous for its canals, water is the main medium of transport in Venice. Water buses, known as , ply the Grand Canal and make scheduled stops. Instead of taxi cabs, visitors can hire a water taxi or a gondola, piloted by a stripe-shirted gondolier, who for an extra fee will serenade his passengers as he poles them through the waterways. Though an iconic experience of a Venetian holioday, the gondola option is exceedingly expensive. Once ashore the only way to explore is on foot, through the narrow alleys and lively squares; there are no cars at all in Venice.
