Water Buses in Venice

There are no typical cars, taxis, or trains in Venice, but that may be because there are no roads on which the vehicles can drive. Venice is completely surrounded by canals and the Adriatic sea. So in response to all this water, Venice has water buses (known as the vaporetti), water taxis, gondolas, and ferries as some of the main modes of transportation. The vaporetti are the most common and most affordable way to get around the city. Although you can take a public gondola to cross over the Grand Canal for only .50 euro, which is a great way to experience the gondolas. All of these modes of transportation are a great way to get away from the usual cars, buses, and taxis.
