Venezia Unica City Pass
Public transport and discounts in Venice
Anyone who is planning an extended visit to Venice and is intent on seeing as much as possible will not be able to get away without paying for various tickets. They are needed for the numerous ferries for trips in and around Venice or for coach services to Mestre. If you intend to make more than just a few single journeys, you should make sure you buy an hourly ticket for tourists. This allows you unlimited travel by public transport for the selected time period (12, 24, 36, 48, 72 or 168 hours). Prices range from 18 to 50 euros, making it a relatively reasonable solution.

For teenagers and young adults between 6 and 29, the Rolling Venice Card offers a very special discount. By filling out a form and presenting an official photo ID card they can apply for a Rolling Venice Card. The card itself costs 6 € and another 22 € for a 3-day ticket. This means that you can travel throughout Venice and the entire lagoon for 28 €, which is really quite cheap.

Silver, Gold & Platinum City Pass
The Venezia Unica City Pass is a little more expensive, but comes with additional discounts and free admission to major attractions. The card is available in three different versions: Silver City Pass, Gold City Pass and Platinum City Pass. The difference is, apart from the price, that the former only entitles you to free admission to certain sights, while the Gold and Platinum City Pass also offer free and unlimited transport in Venice. The city passes are available for 3 or 7 days – prices range from 21,90 to 140,90 €. The Venezia Unica City Pass can be obtained at several authorized points of sale in the city as well as online at www.veneziaunica.it.
All in all, it is a very attractive offer for those who want to take a closer look at Venice and who would like to visit more of the sights featured on ZAINOO and the many islands in the lagoon.
