Want to experience a gondola ride but not pay 80 euros? This is a perfect alternative, albeit for 2 minutes only. I boarded from the Rialto stop, which you can find easily near the Rialto market and it brings me across to San Sofia, where...More
It's the same boat.
A traghetto, though, takes up to 14 people from one side of the grand canal directly across to the other side.
We used a traghetto during a walking wine and cicchetti tour. We sat on the sides of the boat, crossed...More
If you don’t have the €80 spare for a 30 minute gondola ride then this is the second best thing. We got a Traghetto across the Grand Canal, it’s just like a gondola although slightly bigger without all the frills a typical gondola has. It...More
There are only three of these services for crossing the Grand Canal. This was like a gondola that ferried passengers across the Grand Canal for a two euro fee. Given the absence of bridges and the cost of genuine gondola rides this was a bargain....More
We utilized this mode of transportation from Dorsoduro to San Marco. If you want a less expensive gondola ride, take the Traghetto, it wont be as long, but will save you €78. There are 7 Traghetto stations along the Grand Canal, not all are open...More

In order to cross the Grand Canal where there are no bridges, locals use Traghetti to cross instead. These are gondolas that go back and forth across the Grand Canal all day long.
Nothing to stop tourists using them. OK it's only a short ride...More
Do not take this tour. Extremely bad service. The host was rude to my family and physically pushed us out of the kiosk. He claimed that we were wasting his time when we simply asked where the route would take us and how long was...More
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
