Only (cost-effective) way to get around Venice (besides walking ).

#1 stops at all stops on the Venice island Grand Canal and goes to Lido;

#82 is the express that only stops at the main vaporetto stations (Accademia, Rialto, San Marco, etc.)

Another alternative if you just want to get across the Grand Canal are the traghetties (small gondola ferries) but you end up standing in a gondola.

Here's all the poop on the different Venice cards you can buy for vaporetto fares, some with bonus museum passes.

Here's the official VENICEcard homepage

I highly recommend the cards - super convenient.
