Venice Vaporetto Waterbus Stops & Lines – A Tagged Map

When in Venice, unless you go on foot through the maze of calli, the public transport service waterbus vaporetto is the way to go. Here is a Venice vaporetto map showing the vaporetto lines an boarding stations of the vaporetto waterbus. We have started by entering information on vaporetto waterbus stops located at Venice’s two main gateways: the central bus station and car terminal of Piazzale Roma and the railway station / train station of Venezia Santa Lucia / S.Lucia; each placemark for the vaporetto stops by the two terminals lists the lines that you can board and the sequence of stops.

– To cruise along the Grand Canal, you can choose between two lines: Line 1, which stops more frequently (longer travel time) or Line 2, which stops less frequently (shorter travel time).

– If your destination is Piazza San Marco, the closest stops are those that read like SAN MARCO or S. MARCO and those that read S. ZACCARIA DANIELI (SAN ZACCARIA DANIELI) or S. ZACCARIA JOLANDA (SAN ZACCARIA JOLANDA). If you look at the map, you’ll see that all the other SAN ZACCARIA stops are relatively close to Piazza San Marco.

– If you arrive by car and park at the Tronchetto, Line 2 is the fastest connection to Piazza San Marco that also provides a Grand Canal cruise.

– If you are going to visit any of the Biennale exhibitions, get off at the GIARDINI (BIENNALE) stop for the main exhibit area, and at the ARSENALE stop to visit the Corderie and Arsenale exhibit area.

– For on-request stops (e.g. CERTOSA), when on board, ask one of the crew members to stop there. If you are at one of the on-request stops, dial the free-of-charge number 800845065 and ask for the boat to stop.

– As you can see, some lines run back and forth, some others run on a circular route, clockwise/counter-clockwise.

BOLD = mainland terminal stop

GREEN = Biennale stops

If you are interested in discovering curious stories  about the Grand Canal and its beautiful palaces, we recommend this book:

Alberto Toso Fei’s The Secrets of the Grand Canal

which provides little-known, interesting stories and legends on many of the most remarkable palaces and places along Venice’s Grand Canal, on the people who built them and called them home. Concise but well-documented. Also provides a map of the Grand Canal with reference.

If you are interested in curious itineraries and good eat-outs to explore when in Venice, we highly recommend

The secret Venice of Corto Maltese by Lele Vianello and Guido Fuga:

Following the imaginary footsteps of the world-renown comics character Corto Maltese, and the real likes and promenades of his creator, Hugo Pratt, this book suggests seven itineraries, seven doors  that provide access to some of the most intimate places, venues, and eateries in Venice.  The itineraries are pivoted on good places where you can eat true Venetian food and the text is interspersed with historical and literary information, providing anecdotes about curious artifacts, ancient relics from Venice distant past that have survived to this day and have an interesting story to tell, and which you would never imagine existed unless you are a local.

Venice Weather Radar – So You’re in Venice and See SLCs (scary-looking clouds) on the Horizon…

Stormy weather today… if you are in Venice and would like to know whether a storm is heading to the city, we recommend you look at the almost real-time doppler radar animation provided by Meteo Veneto Ultima Ora. Just click on the animazione immagini button and you’ll get something that is somewhat similar to a NWS weather radar animation. The time shown is GMT, so you need to add one hour during the winter and two hours during daylight-saving time…

Names of the Palaces of the Grand Canal in Venice. A Tagged Map

While riding the vaporetto water-bus along the Canal Grande, Venice’s Grand Canal, have you ever wondered what the names of those marvelous palaces are?

We provide two maps of the palaces of the Grand Canal in Bing maps. The two maps show the West bank and the East bank of the Grand Canal, respectively: Palaces of the Grand Canal 1 – West Bank    Palaces of the Grand Canal 2 – East Bank. Zoom in until you can see the front of the palaces (from the waterfront).

Also, a map with the names of the palaces on the Grand Canal   in Bing Maps  for both banks

Most Venetian palace names begin with the word Ca’ which simply means “house” or casa, in Italian, which is shortened into ca’  and followed by the name of the original owners of the homestead – e.g. Ca’ Marcello would be the ancestral dwelling of the Marcello family.

Churches of Venice – A Tagged Map

We are building a tagged map showing the location of (almost) all the churches in Venice, with some basic information on what to see and how-when it is possible to access them.

While doing some research on the subject, we have stumbled onto this great web site, The Churches of Venice that provides concise but interesting information on the churches.

Enjoy!

Palaces of the Grand Canal in Venice – A Tagged Map

While riding the vaporetto water-bus along the Canal Grande, Venice’s Grand Canal, have you ever wondered what the names of those marvelous palaces are? Here is a  a map with the names of the palaces on the Grand Canal   in Bing Maps – select the satellite view and zoom in until you can see the front of the palaces (a feature Google Maps does not offer any longer – bummer). Names of people may be shown, they are the architects who designed the palace. Most Venetian palace names begin with the word Ca’ which simply means “house” or casa, in Italian, which is shortened into ca’  and followed by the name of the original owners of the homestead – e.g. Ca’ Marcello would be the ancestral dwelling of the Marcello family.

We also provide two new maps of the palaces of the Grand Canal in Bing maps. The two maps show the West bank and the East bank of the Grand Canal, respectively: Palaces of the Grand Canal 1 – West Bank    Palaces of the Grand Canal 2 – East Bank.

Google has recently changed the features of its Google Maps service – specifically, they removed the 45-degree satellite view, which  ruined the work done on the Google Maps  tagged map  of the Grand Canal palaces we created previously. The map is still available, as we are still adding info to it, while planning for the definitive transfer of all the information to Bing. (Sorry, Google Maps, you let us down on this!).

Venice Palaces of the Grand Canal – A New Tagged Map for Smartphones in Bing Maps

It’s been one year since we first published a tagged map showing the main buildings on the Grand Canal. We have now re-created the same map in Bing Maps, which works great on smartphones and tablets too. So if you are interested in finding out the names of those wonderful palaces, just click on the link and select satellite layer bird’s eye view, rotating it to align the placemarks to the buildings’ main gate.

Venice by Train – Real-time Train Departures and Arrivals

Are you travelling to Venice by train? We usually do, and plan our daily trip using this very useful real-time schedule of departures and arrivals at Venice’s main railway station, Venezia Santa Lucia. It looks very much like an airport timetable and gives you an instant view of what trains are departing and leaving from Venezia S.Lucia in the next few hours.
