You can plan your trip: transfer from the airport and back, buy tickets for public transport, to museums and churches, as well as choose special package offers. Everything is convenient, without markups, at official prices and on one site.

Let's take a look at the benefits of the Adult City Pass option for 80.90 euros.

Opposite each position, I provided links to the official websites of museums or organizations selling tickets, if you wish, you can repeat my mathematical calculations on my own. So, the price includes:

  1. Public transport ticket = 40 euros, you can use the vaporetto without restrictions for 72 hours!
  2. Doge's Palace, Museo Correr, National Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico Nazionale), Monumental Halls of the National Marchian Library = 21 euros.

  13. Querini Stampalia Foundation (Fondazione Querini Stampalia) = 14 euros.
  14. Chorus association churches, there are only 16 of them, a pass for everything costs 12 euros, and separately for each 3 euros.
Total total cost of tickets when buying separately will be: 40 + 21 + 10 + 8 + 5 + 10 + 10 + 5 + 8 + 8 + 14 + 12 = 151 euros, subtract 81, we get 70 euros savings per person. Even if you don’t visit some 3-4 museums and don’t enter the church, it’s still very profitable and convenient!

If you want to climb the tower or visit the Fortune Museum, you can save an additional 7 euros.

And also on the website you can buy a ticket to any museum separately or order a Museum Pass for 24 euros.

It is very convenient that you can order a transfer from Marco Polo airport, round trip for only 15 euros.

Where to get

Upon arrival in Venice, a card can be obtained at the points of issue right at the airport, at stations, as well as at any ACTV public transport ticket sales machine. Just show your PNR reservation code.

My advice

Buying a Venice pass is obviously a very profitable decision. Tourists coming to Venice for a day or more can save a lot. I recommend the Venezia Unica card to all readers of our site who want to immerse themselves in the culture and history of Venice.
