Venice is one of Italy’s most pedestrian-friendly cities, not least because there are no motorized vehicles on the streets. It’s also a deceptively small city (I say “deceptively” because it’s often so crowded you’d swear it was bigger). Still, visitors are often surprised at how long it takes to walk from one end of the city to the other.
So, yes – while you can walk everywhere in the canal city, it behooves you to learn about public transportation in Venice, too.
In most Italian cities, public transit options are plentiful. In Venice, they’re extremely limited. There are buses that only go as far as Piazzale Roma (near the train station), but otherwise you’re talking about different kinds of boats. I’ll go over each of them below.
