Venice - Luggage on the Vaporetto

Recommended Posts

The official word seems to be one piece of luggage up to 50cm on the Vaporetto.

 

My question is do they enforce this? We will have a case and a bag each which we can both deal with. Will we get away with the Vaporetto?

I believe the size limitation is 150 cm (width x height x depth). In theory, at least, you are correct that the ticket entitles you to one pice of luggage no larger than the above mentioned. You are supposed to buy a ticket for additional luggage.

 

I have no idea if this is enforced some of the time or all the time.

This is a different twist.

I hadn't thought that extra bags might be a cost item. I had thought they just didn't want bags along.

Thanks.

We never used the vaporetto because it always looked so jammed packed with people and luggage! We just found a private water taxi and bargained with the driver. It was so pleasant and didn't cost much more than the public water taxi!

I did it with two suitcases each... and no one said anything. Maybe I just got lucky. I then took the free shuttle to the cruise ship. That was a mad house.

 

I have to say that the water taxi is the way to go... but only if they will take you to the ship (and they wouldn't the last time I went). If a water taxi won't take you to the ship and you have to hassle with a free shuttle or taxi at the bus terminal, might as well as the vaparetto.
