PLEASE look! Change in Hellovenezia web site

I just tried to look up prices for the Venice Blue and/or Orange cards and it appears that the web site has completely changed and they are not selling them that way any more. They have added a 3 day option to include transportation and FREE museum entry for 46.90.Am I going crazy??? Am I reading it wrong??

Have I missed something in understanding the web site???

I agree the site has changed, and seems somewhat confusing, but a straightforward 3 day vaporetto pass is still cheaper, €31 against €37.50 ( slightly cheaper on line)

They now have a 7 day transportation pass that is 47.90

which is cheaper than buying 2 of the 3 day passes. They have dropped the price on it from 53.90 down to 47.90(buying on line) which makes it almost affordable.

I never expect prices to go down so I was very surprised by this change.

Thank you for posting this. Great news! I'm so glad to see that better 7-day transport only price. Will almost definitely purchase a pass online before my trip next spring. Let's hope the site works and isn't too buggy. If you or someone else purchases passes from the site, would love to read about your experience from an online purchase perspective.

I pre-reserved our 7 day pass last November and paid upon arrival at the airport (cash only). It was still a discount price and was just a couple of euros more than pre-paying.

The reason I didn't pre-pay was because we had originally booked our trip for September and had to postpone due to illness so when we rescheduled for November I was a little cautious about pre-paying anything again.
