#ENJOY THE STUNNING PANORAMAS OF VENICE
The short cruise of 30 minutes to Lido is a worthy trip that offers an amazing view of the St. Mark Basin. If you want some panoramic pictures of Venice for your memories this trip will inspire your shots.
(In the picture above you can see the route of the ferryboat through the Canal of Giudecca and through St. Mark and St. George until Lido)
#FERRYBOAT AND TRAVELLERS TICKETS
Please notice that, when you arrive to "Tronchetto" you must buy the ticket at the pay toll, for the car and also for every person in the car including the driver (I know it sounds odd, you're probably thinking how the car can drive by itself. In Venice everything is on the water, and maybe the company is not familiar with the cars. We are still seaking a rational explanation for it).
The car ticket costs:
- 13€ for the cars shorter than 4m (or 13 ft).
- 21€ for the cars shorter than 4,50m. (or 14 ft)
- 26€ for the cars longer than 4,50m. (or 14 ft)
The ticket per person costs:
- - 7,50€ (valid for 75 minutes)

- - 30€ : (valid for 48 hours)
- - 40€ : (valid for 72 hours)

As you already know, Venice is on the water, formed by many islands, most of them connected by bridges, so to wander around the city you will need to take the boats (in venetian they are called: vaporetto)
All the tickets above, allow you for the whole validity to hop on every boat of the company "ACTV", which is the main public transportation.
They provide the connection between all the islands in the lagoon of Venice, and most of lines stop to Lido, where we are.
Please notice that the boat service operates 24/7.

#PARKING THE CAR IN TRONCHETTO
Leaving your car at the Tronchetto car parking, it is worth only if you stay for maximum 24 hours in the city. The parking fee is 21€ for 24 hours or part.
But if you overnight in Venice, it's more comfortable and more convenient for you to bring your car to the hotel so you don't have to carry your baggages on the boats.
