"Traghetto" Traghetto Tip by cheapskate

Traghetto, Venice: 26 reviews and 41 photos


The traghetto is a gondola which helps people cross the grand canal. Great and cheap alternative to the 'real' gondola experience. Good if you are in between the reach of the bridges.. only 3 bridges for the whole grand canal.. This costs only 0.50euros.. but of coz you will have to stand and it lasts for less than 5mins.

This is a cheap way to get the experience of sitting a gondola.. but these little gondola stops are elusive and insignificant.. i tried so hard to find one.. but could did not get to see one until it was time for me to leave!!! arghz!
