Good deal but getting a hold of the tickets took a bit of time. The machines where down and there were no instructions of what to do next. The office said to go back to the machine and try again as she could not issue the card. Then I found another couple that had the same issue and they had been told to go to the #1 line for the people movers He told me to go back to the office Catch 22 I finally told him forget it I'll buy another ticket and he took pity on me took my voucher and issued a new one. Thank you to that lovely man Great value used it to go everywhere Save me tons on tours that take you to the same places. But without the guide

They were on time and ran smoothly. Unfortunately, some people weren’t able to get on the boat as It was full. For this reason they should be running more boats and services. Families and people had to wait in hot temperatures with no shade for the next boat. Apart from this It was great!

Take plenty of time with you if the regata is taking place on the day of your arrival and you want to go to Piazza San Marco. Because then it's time to run. At this moment, better information would not be bad. In retrospect, you have already discovered this information
