5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book..., 27 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Venice & the Veneto (Paperback)
... but on next revision make it more clear that all bus boats are vaporetti but not all vaporetti are ACTV (or Alilaguna). There are two entirely separate operators, ACTV and Alilaguna. Only Alilaguna goes to and from the airport, so if you're using this method to transfer you'll need a separate pass to ACTV-it around Venice. The Alilaguna service is poor to travel around during your stay so don't waste money on, say, the three day pass - just get the airport return. Alilaguna boat staff tend not to believe you've got a ticket unless you're with a suitcase. They probably think you're trying to bumble-on to their boat with an ACTV pass. We found they tended to fib and say they are not going to where you want to - you have to be confident and say you know where they're going and waive your ticket as you approach the boat.
