Famed for its many canals and stunning architecture, Venice is a floating city made up of over 100 tiny islands. As Piazza San Marco and the most famous sights can get very busy especially in the summer, it is worth the extra expense to buy line-skipping tickets to avoid long waiting times. Visitors can wander around the cobbled streets or take a water taxi to see Venice at their own pace and they may just discover something fascinating that is not featured in the guidebook.
Visitors can purchase a Vaporetto, or water bus, ticket for one, two, or three days for unlimited travel around Venice. This makes traveling around easier without having to repeatedly buy tickets and think about the route. This service runs 24 hours per day in the main areas around the Grand Canal and between 5 a.m. and midnight elsewhere.
