Public transport pass - help needed!

Hi we are visiting Venice for three days in march, can anyone give me any advice on buying a public transport 72 hr pass and airport return ticket on line in advance please? Is it worth it at €82 for two? Are the tickets easy to collect at the airport? Our hotel is San cassiano. Any help would be appreciated thank you.

There is no advantage in buying these in advance. Once they gave a discount, but no longer. You can pick them up at the Veneziaunica desk at the airport, the same desk where you would have to pick them up anyway.

As to value, each single trip on the vaporetto is €7 so you would only have to take 6 trips on the vaporetto to break even. In three days that will more than pay for itself.

Just a minor clarification, but the 72h pass, unless you are between 14 and 29 years of age (inclusive) is €35, plus €4 each way for the Aerobus if you purchase the airport tickets together with the pass, so the total is €86 for two people.

It expires at 9:59am on Thursday, not Wednesday night. The pass is not "3 days" but 72 hours from the moment of its first validation
