The pass was great. We bought this pass on the second day which included our bus to and from Venice along with the water boat trips to and from Lido, Burano & Murano all which are well worth visiting (recommend buying at least the 2 day pass if you wish to visit all three islands - 1 day at lido/1 day between Murano & Burano). You can also jump on and off the water buses throughout Venice if you wish however we only used the pass to get to and from the islands. Once you have bought the tickets you will just need to find a yellow ticket machine which you can find at the Venice bus station and a number of other place. You then scan the QR code and your tickets will be printed. keep these tickets and use them for all the transport. Pros - Very easy and convenient. One ticket covers all transport required. cons - If only using for the islands, may be cheaper to buy single tickets.

The pass was very cheap, especially compared to other transportation options in Venice. I was able to purchase a multi-day pass for a very reasonable price, which allowed me to ride as many times as I needed during my stay. This made it easy to hop on and off to different islands without worrying about the cost.

it was good, but you need to give clearer instructions on how to activate the pass from the QR code on a phone. Somebody ended up doing it for us, and gave us two tickets, which I assumed were for one trip and nearly threw away - thank goodness I didn't, as they were valid for the whole week. Once we'd sussed that, it was all very convenient
