“Excellent, relaxed way to tour the Grand Canal”

Vaporetto dell'Arte Canal Grande
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

We bought the 72 hour Vaporetto pass with the add-on of the Vaporetto dell'Arte for an extra €10. A couple of times it was half full, a couple of times almost empty, and once we had the whole boat to ourselves. Excellent value for money when compared against the overcrowded normal vaporettos. I wanted to shout to people at the vaporetto stops when they had disappointed looks on their faces when they could not board, to go buy a ticket and take advantage of the facility - but I resisted the urge.

Amazing...and well worth the money. We are visiting Venice September and the crowds are unbelievable .... shoulder to shoulder in certain places, therefore the public actv water buses are full and you often have to wait for 2 or 3 water buses before you can get on. After a tiring day walking, the dell'arte water bus was a welcome respite and finished off our day beautifully. Comfortable chairs, guided audio tour, free book, and what feel like sheer luxury when you consider the alternative!

Fabulous, leasurely way to see all of the wonderful buildings along the Grande Canal. Commuters take the cheaper regular Vaporetto which are always crowded. Pay a little more for the dell'Arte Vaporetto and you get a seat with commentary on the attractions.

This boat comparing to public transport Vaporetto is much more free and comfortable than totally overcrowded Vaporetto especially in high season! In Vaporetto d Arte there are only few people inside! Great tour if you wanna explore Grand canal and surrounded areas! 36 hours ticket cost around 30€.
