Vaporetto/Luggage question

Hi,

we will take a vapretto from Piazzale Roma to our hotel

and we each have a small suitecase and a small carry-on.

Do we have to pay for the luggage extra?

Thanks,

No. You can be charged for "excess luggage" on a vaporetto, but the amount you describe should be fine, I've certainly never been charged for this.

Incidentally "carry-on" - which I take to mean, "cabin baggage" on a plane, the size of which can vary from airline to airline - doesn't really describe anything: you will be carrying BOTH pieces of luggage onto any train, bus or boat!

You should have no problem if they are small,

Thanks for your informations. Both pieces are really small.

We do only have 6 kg allowed as "carry-on", so no way to bring a big

bag. :)

we too will be taking the vaparetto from piazzale roma to our hotel. Can we buy the vaparetto pass here for 24 hours? Where do we buy a Venice rolling pass for my son to get the discount for the vaparetto pass-at the airport?

You can get vaporetto passes and Rolling venice cards at the Hello Venezia stand at the arrivals hall at Marco Polo airport.
