This in-app audio tour with a city pass valid for 24 hr will guide you through top Venice's landmarks by public water bus known as Vaporetto. You may hop on and hop off the boat at each stop to walk around. (!) Convert your voucher on a regular ticket via ACTV AUTOMATIC TICKET MACHINES at Ferrovia C: enter your PNR personal booking code. Or present your PNR code at VENEZIA UNICA TICKET POINT. Then go to Ferrovia Compartimentale (ex F30) and take Line #1 of the water bus. Venice's wide boulevard of water, the Grand Canal, is a sight in itself, and the only way to see the magnificent palaces of the island city. Take this nautical joyride down the Canal as it snakes through the heart of Venice, and learn what makes this city so unique. The tour starts at the main station, Santa Lucia, where you will catch Vaporetto #1 and start cruising past the moody Riva de Biasio quarter, which gave us the English word "ghetto." Spot Venice's Casinò securing the story of the infamous Italian mafia as you pass by colorful facades of the city's palace-like houses. Get to the commercial Rialto district with its market, gondoliers, and iconic Rialto Bridge. On your way, you will learn the history of Venice and local life hacks on how to navigate through its cozy canals. Sailing through the San Marco district, you will see the art museums and hotels frequented by celebs, the fascinating La Salute church, and the pearl of the city, San Marco Square with the lacy pink Doge's Palace.
