The most common way to get around Venice is walking. The city is very pedestrian friendly, full of foot-bridges over the canals. That said, there are also different kinds of boats you can take to help with transport.
A vaporetto is a large, motorized boat that is like a bus on the water, with regular routes up and down the Grand Canal. A single ticket costs 7,50 euros, or you can buy a multi-use vaporetto pass at a reduced price.
A traghetto is a small ferry in which a few passengers at a time are rowed directly across the Grand Canal at various points. These trips average about 1 euro.
A gondola is the traditional boat most people associate with Venice, in which a gondolier in a striped shirt sings to you as you casually cruise down canals. These rides are more about sight-seeing than transportation, and are very expensive: On average, a 40-minute gondola ride costs about 80 euros.
And finally, the city is full of private taxi acquei (water taxis), which cost a base-charge of 13 euros, plus an additional 1,80 euros for each minute of travel. You can take a taxi acquei to the airport or train station, but the fare will be mind-numbingly expensive. We recommend you avoid these except as a last resort.
