Which lines to use to reach the main tourist attractions
Line 1 and Line 2 are also referred to as “city center lines” as they traverse the inner part of Venice’s historic center, navigating the Grand Canal.
The “giracittà” lines 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2, 6 instead follow a circular route along the outer perimeter of Venice, also connecting to the major and minor islands of the Venetian archipelago.
The “laguna” lines reach the outermost areas (Burano, Torcello, Sant’Erasmo, San Servolo, etc.) and the peripheral zones of Venice (Tessera/Airport, Treporti, Punta Sabbioni, Chioggia, Fusina).
Lastly, the night line (operating from 00:00 to 5:00) follows its route along the Grand Canal, essentially equivalent to the daytime Line 1.

All public transportation piers in Venice are accessible to people with disabilities. However, during very high tides, the access ramps may have a steep incline that can make it challenging to reach the platforms. It’s important to note that the ferries on lines 1 and 2, which travel along the Grand Canal, are capable of accommodating up to 4 wheelchairs simultaneously.
It is allowed to transport only one animal per person, and their transportation is free of charge. All dogs must wear a muzzle and be kept on a leash during the ferry journey in Venice. In addition to small dogs, other animals such as cats and birds are also permitted, provided they are housed in appropriate cages or containers during the trip.
Wheelchairs or strollers for children, when folded, can travel free of charge, limited to one per customer. The designated spaces for transporting individuals with motor disabilities in wheelchairs, if not occupied by them, can also be used for unfolded wheelchairs.
In case of high tide or fog, ACTV transportation may undergo modifications. These modifications may include limitations or route changes due to reduced visibility. For any doubts regarding the status of public transportation, please consult the official ACTV website.
Each traveler holding a valid ticket can carry up to three pieces of luggage or packages free of charge, as long as they do not exceed the dimensions of 150 centimeters. If you have luggage of a different type or exceed the allowed number, you must purchase an additional ticket at the passenger’s price, according to the current rates.
